Looking for a replacement engine for my Toyota Verso...


Would you be able to confirm if I can use the same engine from a Toyota Avensis, Auris and RAV4? It's 1,598cc and 112hp, I think. I have researched it and I understand it's a modified BMW engine, also used in the MINI Cooper D. Can I use the above models in my search to find a replacement, as my engine is toast?

Thanks in advance

Hi Niall,

In theory, yes, that should be possible, though it was not offered in the RAV4 - just the Avensis and Auris. Just make sure you check with the mechanic doing the work before you commit to buying an engine, as there may be some differences in the wiring loom and mounting that need extra work.
