Subaru Launches Trezia Based on Toyota Verso-S MPV

Subaru Impreza 5dr (2011)

In what appears to be a growing partnership between the two Japanese automakers, Subaru is launching the new Trezia MPV. It is basically a rebadged version of the Toyota Verso-S, which is named the Ractis in Japan. The Toyota Ractis was recently introduced to the public at this year's Paris Motor Show. When comparing the two vehicles, it's blatantly obvious that Subaru simply fitted the Toyota with an Impreza front grille.

Some additional chrome pieces on the tailgate, and Subaru logos throughout complete the simple makeover. Besides that, everything else, such as the interior and the alloy wheel covers and hub cover designs are unchanged. Engine options are also identical, with buyers having a choice between a 1.3-liter or a 1.5-liter with front or all-wheel-drive layouts. But fear not...this Japanese version of bad engineering is for Europe only and most likely won't make it to American shores anytime soon.
