The Toyota Verossa was a sedan-style automobile produced by the Toyota Motor Company of Japan. It was primarily purchased within Japan, as it was never officially exported for sale in other countries.
After production of the Chaser and Cresta had ended in 2000, Toyota replaced the two sedans with the controversially styled Verossa in 2001. The Verossa shared its model code with its predecessors and also featured the front-engine rear-drive layout.
The Verossa was powered by 24 valve DOHC inline-six cylinder engines giving 160hp (120kW) to 280hp (210kW) (2.0 litre, Type 1G-FE; 2.5 litre, Type 1JZ-FSE and 1JZ-GTE). The 2.0 litre model was also available in 4WD form.
Production of the Verossa ceased in 2003 due to poor sales.
