Making its world premiere in Geneva, the new Verso is the no-compromise choice for compact MPV customers. It combines true Multi-Purpose Vehicle roominess, flexibility and practicality with the comfort and driving dynamics of a conventional passenger car.

The 79th Geneva Motor Show will host two key Toyota premieres: the new Verso and the new Prius. These two models represent the last wave of a 13 model launch programme, and include comprehensive powertrain revisions based on two technologies: Toyota Optimal Drive, which focuses on optimising petrol and diesel engine efficiency, and Hybrid Synergy Drive®.

Making its world premiere in Geneva, the new Verso is the no-compromise choice for compact MPV customers. It combines true Multi-Purpose Vehicle roominess, flexibility and practicality with the comfort and driving dynamics of a conventional passenger car.

The new Verso benefits from Toyota Optimal Drive technology, with engine power increased by up to 20%, and fuel consumption and CO2 emissions reduced by up to 14%. CO2 emissions for the five-engine range start at only 140 g/km for the 2.0 D-4D 7-seater (best-in-class offer).

The world’s most advanced expression of mass mobility, the new Prius makes its European premiere in Geneva. Within a striking, ECO-ICON bodyshell boasting an exceptionally low drag coefficient of Cd 0.25, the new Toyota hybrid sets new standards in innovation, design and driving enjoyment. 90% of its next generation Hybrid Synergy Drive® system components have been redesigned, creating a lighter, more compact powertrain which delivers a 22% increase in power and a 14% improvement in CO2 emissions, now reduced to just 89 g/km. Fuel consumption has also been lowered by 10% to only 3.9l/100 km in the combined cycle.

The FT-EV, Plug-in Hybrid and FCHV-adv concept vehicles will also be on display, showcasing Toyota’s environmental lead in sustainable mobility through the development of electric, plug-in and fuel cell powertrains.
