The second generation Ractis was unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show as the Toyota Verso-S.[6] The Ractis is produced at the Iwate plant by Kanto Auto Works.

The introduction of the Verso-S will mark the re-entry of Toyota into the European B-MPV segment. When it hits the market, the Verso-S will have the shortest overall length of any MPV in its class in Europe.[7]

The Verso-S is available with a choice of two engines, a 1.33-liter gasoline unit or a 1.4-liter D-4D turbo diesel, both mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The gasoline derivative is also offered with an optional, Multidrive S, automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT), which features a 7-speed, sequential paddle shift mode. The gasoline model delivers a combined fuel economy of 5.5 lt/100 km [42.8 mpg US] and CO2 emissions of 127 g/km, and the diesel model, 4.3 lt/100 km [54.7 mpg US] and 113 g/km respectively.[8]

Subaru Trezia[edit]

Subaru announced a rebadged OEM version of the Ractis for the Japanese market on November 29, 2010. Known as the Subaru Trezia (トレジア), the badge engineered model receives unique bumpers, grille, bonnet, front fenders, headlights, rear finisher and taillight lenses. The name "Trezia" derives from the English language word "treasure".

Engines available comprise the 1.3-liter '1NR-FE and 1.5-liter 1NZ-FE, coupled with an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is offered as the entry-level layout for both engines, with all-wheel drive available as an upgrade on the 1.5-liter version.

In January 2011, Subaru debuted an STI tuned "Trezia STI" at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
