The Toyota Verso is a people carrier that rivals cars like the Renault Grand Scenic, Ford C-MAX and Mazda 5 MPV. It features seven seats, a range of economical engines, excellent comfort levels and strong resale values – making it a very sensible choice for buyers with a big family.
There are drawbacks, though. It's not the greatest car to drive, for example – although sporty dynamics are unlikely to be a priority for the vast majority of buyers in the market for a seven-seat MPV. Nor is it as roomy as many rivals, and the third row of seats are cramped and really only useable for children.
But when it comes to reliability and resale values, the Verso is at the top of the class.
