There are more people carriers to choose from than ever before but as well as practicality and space - style is now a key requirement for many buyers. That may explain why the first Corolla Verso was only sold for two years before being replaced.

There are more people carriers to choose from than ever before but as well as practicality and space - style is now a key requirement for many buyers. That may explain why the first Corolla Verso was only sold for two years before being replaced. The original model looked bulky, didn't drive well and lacked the practicality of rivals. Thankfully its replacement was a much better offering with a well appointed cabin, stylish looks and clever seven-seat flexibility.

The third row of seats is a little cramped and difficult to access but the Corolla Verso is comfortable on the move and feels refined and well built.

 Practical use of chairs. Can fold chairs down easily. Plenty of space for our family.

 Ability to fit seven people in a compact MPV is excellent, though the third row is for young kids only, no leg room for older ones.
