It is: Updated version of last year’s updated version, with seating for seven. Not to be confused with the smaller Yaris Verso, which was quietly dropped last year.
Showroom debut: March 1st.
BMW diesel power: The engine produces 110hp and 199 lb ft of torque. Pace: 115mph and 0-62mph in 12.7 seconds. It will be used in other unspecified Toyotas.
