Toyota has published the first official photos of the upcoming 2013 Verso, before the MPV's debut in Paris next week.
Following an initial teaser released about two weeks ago, Toyota has revealed the facelifted Verso MPV ahead of the car’s public debut next week at the Paris Motor Show. At the front it comes with a large trapezoidal grille which is set within an updated bumper, while the smaller upper grille connects the headlights which incorporate LED daytime running lights.
Toyota fitted the new Verso with smaller folding door mirrors with built-in turning signals, while at the back the bumper has been redesigned and it now incorporates a low-level diffuser. The 16-inch alloys feature a machined face finish while the larger 17-inch wheels carry the same design as before but with a darker finish.
Inside it gets a new satin black finish and soft-touch material for the upper glovebox. Nappa leather covers the door trims, armrest and the steering wheel on the more expensive versions. All of the switches have a deep orange illumination, while the driver’s meters are backlit in white. Other updates include new seat fabrics, colors and designs, along with the company’s Easy Flat-7 seating system that offers 32 different seating combinations.
With the seats in place, the 2013 Toyota Verso offers 155 liters of luggage volume or 440 liters if the third row is folded. With all of the rear seats folded, the MPV has a flat floor that is 1,430mm wide and 1,575mm long.
Engine lineup includes an updated 2.0-liter D-4D diesel with 175 bhp (131 kW) and CO2 emissions of 159g/km, a 2.2-liter D-CAT diesel with 148 bhp (110 kW) and CO2 emissions of 178 g/km, along with the regular 1.6- and 1.8-liter Valvematic gasoline power units that get a 6-speed manual as standard. The latter can also be equipped with an optional updated Multidrive CVT.
