Hot Car Deal – £4,341 discount on Toyota VersoSave 18% on this practical seven-seat MPV
18 March 2014
IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.
The Toyota Verso is a sensible compact seven-seater MPV. Throw in discounts of up to 18% and this car makes even more sense – especially considering its long list of standard equipment.
The second generation Toyota Verso is a solid and versatile people carrier, which manages to squeeze seven seats into a relatively short footprint. Although there’s plenty of room for five passengers in the Verso, the rearmost seats are only really suitable for small children. But if you think of the Verso as a five-seater with a large boot and two occasional seats, makes a sound buy.
The Verso has a sturdy interior, and it’s both safe and comfortable to drive. Toyota also has a reputation for sound reliability.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
