Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £310 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.

Ten Second Review
What do people look for in a compact, seven-seater mini-MPV for the family? Good build quality, neat packaging, a versatile seating system, a reputation for reliability and a choice of frugal engines? Toyota's improved Verso certainly ticks all those boxes, especially with its efficient 1.6-litre diesel powerplant and extended connectivity options.
Slowly but surely, Toyota's product range is becoming more desirable. Not only the sporty niche models but also the more practical cars in the line-up - like this one, the Verso MPV. This is an improved version of the third generation model of Toyota's compact family-sized MPV, a vehicle we first saw in 2001 badged as the 'Corolla Verso'. That model only had five seats, but a seven-seater design followed in 2004, before this MK3 version made its debut in 2009, also with up to seven seats, but now branded purely as 'Verso'. It was an exceptionally competent car, but it wasn't one you'd necessarily find reasons to try and buy and too often for Toyota's liking, potential buyers passed up the opportunity for ownership in favour of more stylish or perhaps more dynamic options in the compact people carrying segment. Hence the need for this continually revised third generation version. It's now got a revised and better equipped trim range. Let's check the Verso line-up out.
One of the issues with the second generation Verso was the car-like driving position that saw you sitting quite low, not something MPV buyers tend to like. This one doesn't perch you up 4x4-style, but you do get much more of the kind of commanding view out that you'd expect from this kind of car. Ironically though, the less sporty seating stance is now accompanied by more dynamic road manners. No, it's not a car you'd go out and drive for the fun of it but firm body control with plenty of grip mean it's easy to manoeuvre and more reassuring in corners than you'd expect from something relatively high-sided like this. The electric power steering system is particularly good, a clever variable assistance affair into which Toyota has developed a function that detects steering inputs that are too forceful and acts to smooth them out by reducing the amount of power assistance. Mainstream Verso ownership will see you choosing between 1.6 or 1.8-litre petrol engines or the unit most will want, the 1.6-litre D-4D diesel, a powerplant developed by BMW. The Valvematic petrol engines rev sweetly but are less relaxed than the diesel alternative and, as you'd expect, deliver significantly less pulling power. Hence our preference for the 110bhp 1.6-litre D-4D unit that most owners will probably choose. On paper, a rest to sixty figure of 11.3s makes it about 2.5s slower to sixty than the 1.8-litre petrol alternative. In practice, the fact that it develops a significant amount of extra torque and does it at the bottom of the rev range rather than the top means that it feels a far more willing companion in day-to-day motoring. The diesel engine also perfectly complements this car's demeanour as an exceptionally refined long distance cruiser.
Design and Build
This third generation Verso's so-called 'keen' front end styling certainly gives this Verso a purposeful stance, dominated at the front end by a large trapezoidal lower grille set within a redesigned bumper. There's also a smaller upper grille which features a chrome-plated horizontal trim bar and runs the full width between sleek headlamp units that incorporate daytime running lights. What hasn't changed for some time are the essential dimensions of this car - wheelbase, height and width - all of which means that this remains one of the more compact mid-sized 7-seat MPVs. Still, with virtually all People Carriers of this sort, the third row seating is anyway really only intended for children, so it'll probably suffice. If you really must put adults here, you'll find it fortunate that the seats recline. To keep bigger folk happy even on short journeys though, you're probably going to need to go a bit further than that and persuade those in the middle seating row to make use of the 195mm backwards and forwards sliding range that's on offer to enable some kind of passenger legroom compromise to be reached. And boot space? Well with all the seats occupied (a rare scenario for likely buyers), there's 155-litres of luggage room, though you do get 11-litres of under-floor storage, enough to hold three six-pack cases of 1.5-litre plastic bottles.
Market and Model
The key change with this revised version is Toyota's decision to streamline the Verso range into three trim grades - 'Active', 'Icon' and 'Design'. For some time now, Toyota's pricing has been sharpening against its rivals and here's another case in point. Expect to pay somewhere in the £19,000 to £25,000 bracket for your Verso, which makes this car very competitively priced indeed. Only the base-trimmed entry-level 'Active' petrol 1.6 offers the five-seat-only layout that very few potential buyers will want given that a seven-seat version is only £500 more. Around half of all potential Verso buyers will want to pay the £1,500 premium necessary to graduate from the petrol 1.6 to the 1.6 D-4D diesel variant, a car and engine combination that's priced from just under £21,000. If you're a petrol person and want to know how much more it would be to graduate up from the base manual 1.6 to the automatic Multidrive S 1.8, the answer is £1,500. Above 'Active' level, all models get 'Toyota Touch 2', Toyota's touchscreen-operated multimedia system. It comes with a high-resolution screen and the package includes Bluetooth for hands-free phone calls and sending and receipt of text messages. There's also a rear-view camera and the set-up is also enabled for simple connection of iPods and MP3 players via USB or Bluetooth. Audio system options, such as the radio and CD player, can also be controlled using the screen. Buyers can upgrade to sat nav-equipped 'Touch 2 with Go' status if they wish - an upgrade standard for 'Design'-spec buyers, who also get part-leather upholstery and a panoramic glass roof.
Cost of Ownership
Size and weight are two things the Verso has plenty of but its advanced engines still manage to yield class-competitive economy and emissions figures thanks to Toyota's Optimal Drive technology. This has been used in this generation model to boost power across the range by up to 20% while lowering fuel economy and emissions considerably. As a result, both petrol engines return around 40mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions in the low 160s. The 1.6-litre D-4D diesel engine emits just 119g/km of CO2, making it one of the cleaner units of its kind. Residual values are reasonably strong. These see this car retain between 38-42% of its original purchase price after three years or 36,000 miles: compare that to the 26-28% you'll get from a Renault Grand Scenic.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for
private individuals. This
is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
