Chronology
SuccessorToyota Ractis/Verso-S

The Toyota Yaris Verso (Japanese: トヨタ・ヤリス ヴァーソ, Toyota Yarisu Vuāso) is a mini MPV produced by Toyota from August 1999 until October 2005. In Japan, it is known as the Toyota Fun Cargo (Japanese: トヨタ・ファンカーゴ, Toyota Fankāgo). It was replaced in Japan and Europe by the Toyota Ractis/Verso-S.

Most reviews in the United Kingdom, where the car has since been replaced by the Verso-S, have praised the space and the driving characteristics whilst passing adverse comment on the car's appearance.[1] The vehicle earned the nickname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 United Kingdom 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-litre D4-D diesel version was introduced. In Japan, there was also an all-wheel-drive version of the 1.5-litre model (NCP25). In some markets, a two-seater van with stripped equipment was also available.[citation needed]
