The Toyota Verso (codenamed ZGR20 or AUR20) is a compact MPV produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota.

The Verso was revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in March 2009 as the successor of the Toyota Corolla Verso. Available in five or seven seat derivatives, it is positioned below the Wish and above the Ractis in Japan, the Verso-S in Europe and the Space Verso in Israel. The Verso is the safest MPV, according to Euro NCAP’s test results for 2010.

This model was available in Europe, South Africa, China and Israel, but not in Japan or North America, where the Toyota RAV4 is sold instead. The only available diesel engine for the Verso range in South Africa is the 2.0L D-4D.[2] Competitors include the Opel/Vauxhall Zafira Tourer, Ford C-Max, Volkswagen Touran, Mazda5 and the Peugeot 5008.[citation needed]

The facelifted Verso was revealed at the 2012 Paris Motor Show alongside the E180 Auris. This facelift has the front fascia that is similar to the E180 Auris and was done by Mehmet Kiliç of Toyota ED2.[3]
