A Verso – But More So

10 May 2006

Toyota launches the new Verso TR


  • Enhanced specification with CD multi-changer, rear privacy glass, Bluetooth connectivity, 16-inch alloy wheels and metallic paint as standard
  • Choice of 1.8-litre VVT-i petrol and 2.2-litre D-4D 140 diesel engines
  • On sale now, with on the road prices from £16,745

Toyota’s supremely versatile Verso compact MPV adds another dimension to its owner appeal this spring with the launch of the new TR model. This special version delivers a high-value specification in addition to the Verso’s established winning features.

Taking the current T3 grade as its starting point, the TR introduces a six-disc CD multichanger for the audio system and Bluetooth connectivity to enable hands-free use of compatible mobile phones. And to make calls even easier and safer to make and receive, button controls are integrated into the steering wheel.

From the outside the TR cuts a dash with cool rear privacy glass, ‘Sequoia’ 16-inch alloy wheels and extra chrome detailing. Silver Steel, Igneous Grey and Eclipse Black metallic paint finishes are also included in the package.

These features add to an equipment list that includes Toyota’s groundbreaking Easy Flat folding system for the five rear seats, trip computer, electric windows and (heated) door mirrors, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, digital climate control air conditioning, auto-dimming rear view mirror, height-adjustable front seats, front fog lights and leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob. An accessory pack providing both front and rear parking sensors is available as an option, available for fitting through local Toyota Centres.

The TR is available with Toyota’s 1.8-litre VVT-i petrol engine and the 2.2-litre D-4D 140 common rail diesel unit. The 1.8 is available with a five-speed manual gearbox and, as an option, Toyota’s Multi-Mode transmission, which provides sequential, clutchless gear selection. The D-4D 140 is equipped as standard with a six-speed manual box.

The new models are on sale now; price details are given in the table below.


  • Verso TR 1.8 VVT-i manual – £16,745
  • Verso TR 1.8 VVT-i M/M – £17,245
  • Verso TR 2.2 D-4D 140 – £17,845
