The Medium version is 4.9 m long with a 3.2 m wheelbase. The Long version has the same 3.2 m wheelbase but features an extended rear overhang for greater luggage capacity, increasing overall length to 5.3 m. All three ProAce variants are 2.2 m wide and 1.9 m high.

Family grade models can be identified by coloured bumpers, a chrome trim surround to the lower front grille, foglamps and separate-opening tailgate glass fitted as standard. A grade dependent choice of wheels includes 16” or 17” steel full-wheel covers and 17” alloys.

The ProAce Verso will be available with a range of five powertrains featuring 1.6 and 2.0 litre diesel engines, incorporating Stop & Start. A 70 kW/95 DIN hp variant of the 1.6 litre engine may be mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed robotised manual transmission.
