Toyota Proace and Proace Verso updated with more kit

Toyota’s Proace panel van and Proace Verso people carrier have been fitted with more generous amount of standard equipment

Toyota has updated the Proace panel van and Proace Verso people carrier for the 2021 plate change, improving both vehicles’ level of standard equipment. Both models will go on sale in September, with first deliveries expected to arrive the following month.

Proace panel vans now come as standard with Toyota’s Smart Cargo system, which adds a load-through flap for the cargo bay bulkhead, increasing the van’s maximum load length by 162mm. The package also adds lumbar support and an armrest for the driver’s seat, as well as a folding passenger seat which Toyota says can double as a desktop.

Toyota’s updates for the Proace Verso are equally minimal. The eight-seat Family model now features rear parking sensors as standard, while the nine-seat Combi variant comes with a new dark grey seat upholstery. The range is also still topped by a luxury VIP variant.

Entry-level Proace and Proace Verso Active models also now come with an alarm and manual air conditioning as standard – and Toyota has made its in-built satellite navigation system standard across the model line-up.

Like the current model, buyers have their choice of four diesel engines. One-tonne payload models are offered with either a 100bhp or 116bhp turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder, while the models capable of hauling up to 1.4 tonnes can be specced with either a 119bhp or 172bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre unit.
