Used Toyota Proace Verso For Sale
The Toyota Proace Verso is an 8-seat van-based MPV that has been on sale in the UK since 2016 when it joined the brand's line-up to replace the outgoing Verso.
It provides supremely spacious and comfortable multi-person transport that is equally as useful to taxi drivers as it is to families. Other reasons to consider a used Toyota Proace Verso would be:
- Extreme levels of practicality and space
- High-up driving position
- Generous standard equipment
- Very safe
- Easy to get in and out of
Engines and Driving Experience
Used Proace Verso can only be found with diesel engines:
- 1.5-litre: 118bhp, up to 43.4mpg
- 2.0-litre: 138bhp, up to 40.9mpg
Both are smooth and offer progressive power, though the 2.0-litre has noticeably more grunt as you'd expect. Go for this engine if you're regularly fully-loaded or plan to tow with your Proace Verso.
The high-up seating position is a result of the van-based platform, and gives the driver a good view of the road ahead. Additional sound-deadening and nice comfortable seats means the Proace Verso has very good levels of refinement, too.
Practicality and Running Costs
This is one of the most practical cars that you can buy, with its boxy proportions giving you lots of head, leg and cargo room whether you're in the front, middle or back.
On the used market you'll find 'Compact', 'Medium' and 'Long' wheelbase versions. Medium is the most popular, and while it can fit eight people in comfortably, you'll be left with no boot space whatsoever unless you remove some of the rearmost seats or slide them all the way forwards. Long versions provide you with some extra room in which to store cargo.
Running costs are higher than a smaller MPV (this is a fairly large vehicle) but the economy isn't too bad and insurance groups in the low 20s will result in reasonable premiums.
Interior, Technology and Safety
You wouldn't really be able to tell from the interior materials that the Proace Verso is based on a commercial vehicle. The quality is surprisingly good, with switchgear, upholstery and plastics all of a high standard.
Depending on the specification you'll get a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system in the dashboard, cruise control, parking sensors and air conditioning as standard.
Safety is well taken care of by Toyota's suite of advanced safety systems which resulted in a 5-star Euro NCAP crash test score back in 2015. Features include:
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Pedestrian detection
- Adaptive cruise control
- Colour head-up display
Is the Toyota Proace Verso right for me?
The Toyota Proace Verso is the car for people who need the maximum amount of room for the maximum number of people.
Its unquestionable practicality can only be matched by other vehicles of this type, such as the Vauxhall Vivaro Life, Peugeot Traveller and Citroën SpaceTourer, all of which are built on exactly the same platform as the Proace Verso.
A (more expensive) Mercedes-Benz V-Class will provide the same amount of room but with added luxury feel.
