The Toyota Yaris Verso is a mini MPV produced by Toyota from August 1999 until October 2005. In Japan it was called the Fun Cargo. It was replaced in Japan by the Ractis.

Most reviews in the UK, where the car has since been replaced by the Verso-S, have praised the space and the driving characteristics whilst passing adverse comment on the car's appearance.[1] The vehicle earned the nickname of "ice-cream van" in the UK for its boxy appearance and shape.[2][3]

The car was available with 1.3 and 1.5 liter petrol engines, and in 2001 a 1.4 liter D4-D diesel version was introduced. In Japan there was also a four-wheel drive version of the 1.5 litre model (NCP25). In some markets a two-seater van with stripped equipment was also available.
