Toyota has unveiled its Verso-S mini-MPV at the Paris motor show.

The new model will be launched in the UK in early 2011 and further details will be made available soon.

It is seen within Toyota as a niche model, like the Urban Cruiser, and therefore will carry a price premium over its closest rivals in the B-segment market, such as the Kia Venga.

The styling of the Verso-S has cues that will feature on the next Yaris.

Although the car is less than four metres long, Toyota claims it has a “practical, flexible interior [which has] maximised usable space, comfort and perceived quality”.See all the latest Toyota reviews, news and video

Erm...excuse me. Is it the new Honda Jazz?
No, silly. It's the old Honda Jazz, with Prius headlights and a dent in the bottom of the doors. Silly. That's why they're charging extra for it, of course...

Likely candidate for the next HSD implementation?

Re: Toyota Verso-S: first pics

Let's wait and see how it fares in the packaging department. The Mk1 A-class (especially in LWB guise, the V168) is still the benchmark, being able to transport a family of 4 and their kit on vacation in comfort at 3.78 metres. Everyone keeps promising "class leading space" with monsters over 4.20m. That's hardly what I call a city-friendly car, that's Alfa75 length. If Toyota can add 1m of car to the IQ without losing any of the space efficiency, ie making as much as possible of it available for passengers and luggage, and obviously from the picture offer an auto option, that's a serious candidate for me.
