Minus a hybrid van in the lineup, or even in the vehicle market, Toyota comes as close as anybody with its Prius V Hybrid. Straddling in looks between a station wagon and small passenger van, the Toyota Prius V Hybrid offers buyers the amenities of a full-blown min-van, with the features of a fuel sipping hybrid, underlain with the Prius’ cutting edge performance, technology, and safety.
For those looking to haul a lot of people and a bunch of things, the 2017 Toyota Prius V can do it while making nearly 50 mpg, while delivering comfort, precise handling, and the benefits of high torque acceleration via its electric motor.
The highest Prius V trim model has unique and advanced sport tuned suspension for even more performance. The engine platform and the Prius V’s aerodynamic exterior deliver a staggering 50 mpg combined.
A 1.8L 4-cylinder aluminum motor with intelligence is the main power source of the Prius V. A permanent magnet AC synchronous motor is the electric part of the hybrid system and the pair combine for a net 121HP. The system produces zero emissions and each of the four Prius V trim’s engines are managed with an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission.
The Prius V’s innovative double wishbone rear suspension and MacPherson front struts combine to deliver the most responsive and best handling Prius yet. Advanced metals and smart construction produces increased body rigidity in the Prius V for added performance.
The rear spoiler of the Prius V gives it the whole visual package a more sporting and balanced look. Mostly, the Prius V exterior features serve to contribute to maximum airflow for better fuel mileage, but Toyota has managed to mold it all into a well-crafted, modern, and cutting edge visual masterpiece.
The unmistakable Prius V exterior still maintains its wedge shape for optimum aerodynamic flow but now a day’s, with Toyota taking some of the awkwardness out of the design, the Prius V is a true looker. The front is shaped and has a fuller, more athletic look. Aerodynamic shapes and more dramatic lines, create a more intricate and sophisticated appearance throughout the body.
The Prius V has 34.6 cubic feet of cargo space, enough to haul items large and small. Clever storage spaces aid in further storage and year seats fold flat and recline for easy configurations.
The visual appeal of the Prius V continues into the cockpit. More space, less clutter, the futuristic looking Prius interior is minimalist, intelligently designed, and highly functional. The center console area is sharp and clean, as it does without a mechanical handbrake thanks to Toyota’s use of an electronic brake system.
Electronic visual information is positioned in the center of the Prius V’s cockpit, so that drivers spend less time looking down.
Available feature like 8-way adjustable front bucket seats, Soft Tec fabric, and moonroof add to the comfort and ambience of the Prius.
