By travelling to France to Toyota's design centre in Nice, I had the opportunity to sample the new diesel engine Verso some four weeks before its UK on-sale date and found a dramatic difference between the new one and its predecessor.
Since the original Verso was launched in 2002, UK sales have been in excess of 52,000 and Toyota is confident the latest Verso will attract existing owners and new conquests.
The Verso, which broke cover at the Paris motor show in September, will join the new British-built Auris in strengthening Toyota's presence on the family/ compact car scene.
Toyota has been successful in making sure the Verso-S offers more appealing styling than the Yaris Verso which was accused of looking like a modified van.
Top speed and acceleration are unlikely to be Verso buyers' top priority, but for the record it reaches 62mph in a modest 13.7 seconds and top speed is 103mph.
Outside the Verso S is small, but it seems big inside The new Toyota Verso S
Unlike the previous Verso, which was based on a Corolla platform, the new car has its own dedicated platform so it is a ground-up MPV and not a tall saloon.
Oltre al Sentiero la Rizzarelli discute altri testi che mostrano l'importanza della prospettiva e del punto di vista e che dimostrano come, per lo scrittore, la sua Liguria "magra e ossuta" sia fatta di immagini verticali, scale e terrazze che s'inerpicano verso la montagna dalla costa.
The engine is offered in Verso TR and T Spirit trim levels.
