If you are looking for a spacious MPV, the latest Toyota Proace Verso could be just what you need. This eight-seater comes in three trim levels (Shuttle, Family and VIP) and three body styles (Compact, Medium and Long).
Each model features two sliding side doors, two fixed side windows and a window incorporated into the rear tailgate. Smart-looking body-coloured fixtures include bumpers, door handles and (power-adjustable and heated) door mirrors. Each variant also features privacy glass, which is fitted in rear windows. The vehicle has 16-inch steel wheels as standard, while Family and VIP grades come with 17-inch five-double-spoke alloy wheels. Exterior lighting comprises, among other things, automatic headlights, front fog lamps and daytime running lights (the latter available as LEDs with VIP trims).
A three-seat front bench provides the driver with adjustable lumbar support and VIP trims also provide this for front-row passengers. Occupant capacity varies depending on the body style chosen, and breaks down as follows: Compact (eight people); Medium (between eight and nine travellers); Long (seven or nine occupants).
Standard features include power-operated front windows with one-touch facility, automatic air conditioning with rear-compartment air circulation, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and a rear-window defogger and wiper. All three rows each feature a 12-volt power outlet.
A standard-issue 1.6-litre 115bhp diesel engine is paired with six-speed manual transmission. This delivers up to 56.5mpg and a 137g/km CO2 emissions figure. Automatic transmission is available with the 2.0-litre 180bhp diesel unit.
An eight-speaker audio system is included as standard. VIP grades come with a premium surround-sound system that features nine loudspeakers. Included are DAB radio, an AM/FM tuner, Bluetooth connectivity and USB and AUX inputs. Family and VIP trims also feature a seven-inch touchscreen and a navigation system.
The Proace Verso comes with a five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. Safety features fitted as standard include Vehicle Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Hill-start Assist Control, ISOFIX preparation and power-operated childproof locks.
