The Japanese manufacturer is working on the new generation of this compact minivan. At this moment, we are still waiting for some official details about the new model, but some design characteristics look pretty certain. Without any doubt, the new 2019 Toyota Verso will continue its relationship with Corolla, features the same characteristics in most aspects. Of course, this means the same platform, as well as the mechanics. On the other side, count on a common MPV layout in terms of body style and interior design.
One of the most interesting novelties should be a new hybrid model, as well as a pretty long list of standard equipment that will include lots of latest tech features and gadgetry. The new 2019 Toyota Verso still waits for the official confirmation, though its arrival seems very likely according to the latest reports. It should come next year.
2019 Toyota Verso Redesign
The upcoming redesign is about to bring lots of improvements. The overall layout may be the same, but the 2019 Toyota Verso will come with significant improvements under the skin. Of course, a new platform is the first things that come to our minds. Like other new models from the company’s lineup, this one will also adopt Toyota’s new platform, known as TNGA. Judging on what we have seen in new Corolla and other cars that adopted this architecture, we can count on significant improvements in terms of driving experience. Driving dynamics and overall performances were some of the weakest points of previous generations. Nowadays, Toyota offers cars with spectacular driving characteristics. Also, count on improved efficiency and comfort. Considering all these improvements, the 2019 Toyota Verso could easily become one of the class leaders, when we see these characteristics paired with recognizable reliability and overall quality.
2019 Toyota Verso Styling
Of course, every redesign includes a completely new visual appearance as well. The 2019 Toyota Verso won’t be an exception for sure. On one side, we definitely won’t see any radical change. The new MPV will continue with familiar look and proportions. Even dimensions are about to remain pretty much the same.
On the other side, we will see a completely new suit, completely adapted to the company’s latest design language. This will affect all areas of the vehicle, but the front end in particular. Count on the same face that we can see in the new Corolla, of course with minimal modifications due to vehicles van-like shape.
2019 Toyota Verso Interior
We expect no surprises in this aspect. Previous Verso models were all characterized by amazing interior quality and the 2019 Toyota Verso should continue in the same way. In terms of the cabin layout, we expect to see lots of inspiration from the new Corolla/Auris. This particularly refers to the dashboard, which will come with a new layout that puts focus on quality and soft-touch materials. Of course, count on latest tech features as well. Considering that this is a minivan, expect to see all those passengers-friendly features already in base versions. This refers to all those gadgetry and connectivity features, such as a large touchscreen, USB connectivity in all rows of seating, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging etc.
2019 Toyota Verso Safety
Another important aspect of the new 2019 Toyota Verso will be safety. We expect to see all those advanced driver aids and safety systems already in base models. This includes Toyota Safety Sense suite as well. If you’re not familiar with this suite, it is a package that consists of numerous advanced systems like pre-collision alert with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition and much more.
2019 Toyota Verso Engines
Another aspect where we are about to see a bunch of novelties. Base models will probably come with a small and efficient 1.2-liter gasoline engine that delivers around 120 horses. Considering that the primary market of 2019 Toyota Verso will be Europe, we can count on diesel engines as well. One of the certain oil-burners will be a 1.6-liter diesel with around 115 horses. Few more engines will be in the offer.
Of course, we expect to see something more powerful in the offer. Therefore, a bigger 2.0-liter gasoline engine comes to our minds. This unit should feature a max output around 170 horses, which seems like a perfect measure for a compact minivan. Some reports also suggest a turbocharged version of this engine, with more than 200 horsepower.
We count on a hybrid version as well. At the moment, a familiar system that is built over a 1.8-liter engine seems certain. It delivers around 138 horses. Still, keep in mind that the company has developed a new hybrid system, built over a 2.0-liter engine, which should bring better efficiency, including both more mpg and more power.
2019 Toyota Verso Release Date and Price
The 2019 Toyota Verso will hit the market next year. Base models will probably go around 25.000 dollars. When it comes to the competition, some of the main rivals will be models like Ford C-Max, VW Touran, and others.
