Toyota Verso -BODY FUNCTIONALITY

This is one of the smaller minivans on the market. The Toyota Verso is tighter than the Avensis station wagon, but has a more functional interior. All models have three independent seats in the second row that can be moved, folded or hidden on the floor. The lifting carried out in 2013 did not improve the key parameters of this car – the manufacturer limited himself to styling changes.

Toyota Verso – ENGINES

Diesel cars are the most desirable in this segment. Unfortunately – Toyota diesel from this period are neither the most durable nor the cheapest to repair. For this reason, the petrol versions 1.6 Valvematic and 1.8 VVT-i are … more expensive and easier to sell. We especially recommend the stronger one, to which, as a last resort, you can install an LPG installation.

EMERGENCY

Gasoline varieties practically do not break. Unfortunately, it is different from diesel.

COSTS

Verso is one of the most expensive propositions in its segment. Parts for it also cost a lot.

MARKET SITUATION

Limited supply, moderate demand. The advertisements are dominated by gasoline variants with a manual gearbox. 

WORTH KNOWING

  • In addition to the basic 5-seater versions, there are also 7-seater varieties on the market. Unfortunately – they are among the tightest on the market.
  • There are two versions of automatic transmissions to choose from: traditional (installed in 2.2 D-4D diesel) and continuously variable CVT (in the 1.8 gasoline version).

TYPICAL DEFECTS AND REPAIR COSTS

  • Engine block failures 2.2 D-4D – Cylinder liners are getting loose. The symptom is, among others loss of coolant. The car can be scratched by replacing the head gasket with a thicker one, but this only postpones the replacement of the engine. Fortunately, not all copies of this capacity have the mentioned disadvantage.
  • Clogging Diesel Particulate Filters – The most problematic is the 2.2 D-4D, but other diesels are no better. We remind you that the matter concerns all diesel after 2010.
  • Rapid wear and tear of the interior – It is the fault of perishable plastics.

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

– Rugged finish
– Little space for third-row passengers

WATCH OUT FOR
