Toyota has pulled the wraps off the new Verso S.
Looking like a Jazz-ified Toyota iQ, the Verso S measures less than four meters long and rides on a 2,550mm wheelbase. Despite being the shortest MPV in the European B-segment, the company says "clever packaging delivers remarkable room for both those on board and their luggage."
Inside, cabin has a two-tier dashboard, brushed metal trim, and a 6.1-inch Touch Screen Multimedia Interface. When the 60:40 split rear seats (with a one-touch fold-flat mechanism) are folded down, there's a healthy 1,388 liters (49 cubic feet) of cargo capacity.
Under the hood, power is provided by a 1.33-liter Dual VVT-i petrol engine with 98 hp (73 kW / 99 PS) and 126 Nm (93 lb-ft) of torque. When connected to a six-speed manual transmission, the engine is expected to have a combined fuel economy rating of 51.4 mpg (UK) and CO2 emissions of 127 g/km. If those figures aren't to your liking, the CVT will likely improve those figures to 54.3 mpg (UK) and 120 g/km.
Pricing information wasn't released, but sales are scheduled to begin in February 2011.
