The Toyota Proace Verso has made its official debut at the Geneva motor show, alongside the new Hilux and C-HR crossover.
The van-based MPV, which shares much of its architecture with the Citroën Spacetourer and Peugeot Traveller in the ongoing PSA-Toyota partnership, will be offered in three separate sizes like its Peugeot and Citroën relatives, and will seat up to nine people.
Toyota hasn’t released any specification details for the Proace Verso yet, but claims that "advanced safety and convenience" technologies will feature.
Among the engines on offer in its Citroën and Peugeot siblings are a 2.0 BlueHDi 150 S&S and a 2.0-litre 180bhp diesel respectively, both of which are used elsewhere in Peugeot and Citroën’s model line-ups. The Proace Verso will use existing Toyota engines, possibly including the 141bhp 2.0 D-4D from the Avensis and RAV4.
With hybrid powertrains in an increasing number of Toyotas, it is also likely that the Proace Verso will eventually be offered as a hybrid, although Toyota could not confirm this.
The Citroën Spacetourer and Peugeot Traveller will also make their debuts at Geneva, alongside Spacetourer Hyphen and Traveller i-Lab concepts based on their namesakes.
