The Prius V wagon might look similar to the familiar Prius hatchback, but it's stretched in all dimensions to provide notably more cargo space and a roomier rear seat. And despite its larger size, the efficient gas-electric hybrid powertrain still gets an excellent 41 mpg overall, only 3 mpg less than the hatchback. That combination gives the Prius V a blend of versatility and fuel economy that no other vehicle can match. But the engine sometimes feels overworked, and handling, while secure, is not agile.
