Leasing a Toyota Proace Verso
Engines and performance for the Toyota Proace Verso
There are two diesel engine choices for the Toyota Proace Verso, producing either 150hp or 180hp. The lower-powered offering is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, while the more powerful version has an automatic transmission. The fuel economy ranges from 35 mpg to 41 mpg. Both engines are good performers when the people carrier is fully loaded and they deliver plenty of power when necessary, for example when overtaking on motorways. The engines also have stop-start technology to help boost economy and the Proace Verso uses AdBlue so owners will need to replace it every 9,300 miles.
Equipment and handling
For anybody wanting a well-built and impressive nine-seater MPV, then the Toyota Proace Verso is certainly worth a closer look. It's not only a very practical choice, complete with side doors for easy entry, but it returns decent economy and the interior has been well-designed. It's based on a van, so delivers a stable drive with nice handling on country roads too. The seats can be rearranged to accommodate luggage and there's a list of options that turn this into a VIP carrier quite easily. The interior has been well-designed, particularly considering it is based on a van, with hard wearing materials designed for lots of use. When driven at speed, the MPV is a fairly quiet place to be spending time and it's a very comfortable vehicle for long motorway journeys. The equipment list includes Bluetooth connectivity, a DAB radio, air conditioning and rain sensing wipers. Go up the range and owners have the choice of satnav, keyless entry, a larger touchscreen and alloy wheels. There's also the option of the firm's 'safety sense' package which includes lane keeping assist. Opt for the top model and you'll be enjoying heated captain's chairs for those in the front as well as occasional rear tables for passengers along with rear privacy glass, rear parking sensors and power closing side doors. Essentially, the Toyota Proace Verso offers an impressive MPV that is not only spacious and practical but is an easy car to live with for those who need the space.
