Toyota Prius V

2017
Toyota Prius V 2017 wagon Trim Shown: 2017 Three wagon FWD CVT
This wagon version of the previous-generation Prius offers a very roomy rear seat and a generous cargo area. It's about the size of the Ford C-Max, its main competitor. 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. The ride is comfortable, but uneven pavement can cause an annoying side-to-side rocking. Handling is sound and secure but hardly inspiring. Rear visibility is better than in the standard Prius. A larger 4.1-inch dash-top screen for trip computer functions is also new.

Toyota Prius V 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Three/ Four
This wagon version of the Prius offers a very roomy rear seat and a generous cargo area. It's about the size of a Mazda5 but seats just five. The extra weight and bigger profile 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. It drives similarly to the standard Prius, but handling isn't exactly agile. A chair-like seating position, low sills, and big windows combine to make the Prius V feel open and airy. The standard backup camera is a welcome feature. A weight-saving plastic moonroof is optional.
