Toyota has revealed a mid-cycle refresh for its overseas Verso small people mover, ahead of a Paris unveiling later this month.
The Corolla-based passenger van has been available in several international markets since 2009, and the 2013 model brings a raft of styling tweaks to bring it in line with Toyota’s latest offerings.
These revisions include a restyled front fascia and guards, reshaped headlights with LED daytime running lights, new door mirrors, and revised taillight internals.
Inside, the Verso benefits from greater use of soft-touch plastics and revised instrumentation, while door trims, centre armrest and steering wheel are now leather clad.
Interior packaging remains unchanged, with the flexible seven seat layout offering 32 different configurations.
The three trim grades offered previously continue, with equipment levels improved across each - including a 6.1 inch multimedia interface now standard on all models.
Driveline options continue with 2.0 and 2.5 litre turbodiesel, and 1.6 and 1.8 litre petrol engines, though each have been tuned for efficiency and emissions improvements.
The Verso’s chassis has also been revised, with suspension and steering refinements, along with a strengthened monocoque and extra sound deadening to aid refinement.
Australian availability remains unlikely, but international sales are expected to closely follow the 2013 Verso’s Paris Motor Show debut.
