The Toyota Yaris Verso is a mini MPV produced by Toyota from August 1999 until October 2005. In Japan, it was called the Fun Cargo. It was replaced in Japan by the Ractis.

Most reviews in the United Kingdom, where the car has since been replaced by the Verso-S, have praised the space and the driving characteristics whilst passing adverse comment on the car's appearance.[1] The vehicle earned the nickname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 litre petrol engines, and in 2001 a 1.4 litre D4-D diesel version was introduced. In Japan, there was also a four wheel drive version of the 1.5 litre model (NCP25). In some markets, a two seater van with stripped equipment was also available.
