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 microvan but seats five. The extra weight and a less aerodynamic shape take a small toll on fuel economy, but the V still got an excellent 41 mpg overall in our tests. Despite lower gearing, the electric motor and engine have to work fairly hard, especially when the car is loaded with cargo. It drives similarly to the standard Prius, but rear visibility is better in the V. A weight-saving plastic moon roof is optional. Reliability is above average. We can no longer recommend the Prius V because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
