Toyota released new details and photos for the 2014 Verso, the hatchback which will get a brand-new 1.6-liter diesel powerplant. According to the carmaker, this engine is borrowed from BMW and is capable to deliver 110 horsepower and 270 Nm of torque.
Together with a six-speed manual transmission, the 0-100 km/h sprint is possible in 12,7 seconds with a top speed of 185 km/h.
Of course, it is not a power house but you will appreciate the average fuel economy of 4,5 liters/100 km or 62,8 mpg UK with CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.
According to Toyota, the new unit comes with new electrical interfaces and an improved dual-mass flywheel, all capable to provide a better performance.
“It replaces the 2.0-litre D-4D engine in the UK line-up, offering higher efficiency and a 20kg weight saving,” claim the Japanese people.
The 2014 Toyota Verso is offered with new 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, a rearview camera and privacy glass. Pricing and availability details will be released soon.
