Toyota Prius V Overview

This wagon version of the Prius offers a very roomy rear seat and a generous cargo area. It's about the size of the Mazda5 but seats five. Despite its extra weight and a less aerodynamic shape, the V still got an excellent 41-mpg overall in our tests. The electric motor and engine have to work fairly hard, especially when the car is loaded with cargo. Rear visibility is better than in the standard Prius. The 2015 model scores a Good in the IIHS small-overlap crash test; the original V scored a Poor, which prevented us from recommending it. A larger 4.1-inch dash-top screen for trip computer functions is also new. Reliability is well above average.
