Prius v is the Family Hybrid in an Expanding Model Family

Largest in the line of Toyota Prius models, the Prius v provides room for families with active lifestyles while offering 42 mpg combined fuel economy. The “v” stands for versatility in this highly efficient vehicle that offers more cargo room than most small SUVs.For 2014, the Prius v gains daytime running lights (DRLs) and also offers the Panoramic View Moonroof as a standalone option on Prius v Three.Utilizing the same proven Hybrid Synergy Drive system as Prius, Prius v offers estimated EPA fuel economy ratings of 44 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 42 mpg combined.In the Prius v, generous interior space and good visibility are complemented by a high seating position, ample head room and a roomy 35.9 inches of rear seat leg room. A low, wide-opening rear hatch accesses 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 60/40 split folding rear seats, which expands to a generous 67.3 cubic feet with the seatbacks lowered. The fold-flat front-passenger seat allows the vehicle to carry long items. Sliding second row seats allow for easier ingress and egress and rear-storage flexibility, with a 45-degree recline for greater comfort.

The center-mounted instrument panel is a visually succinct, space-efficient design that is also easy to use. As with other Prius models, the driving controls including push button start, parking switch, drive-by-wire shift toggle, and driving mode buttons are immediately at hand. Instrument-panel controls, including a single dial automatic climate control, provide an advanced look and user-friendly function.

The Prius v cabin features a number of storage spaces, including dual glove boxes, a center console storage box and utility tray and five cup holders in large and medium sizes. Bottle holders are built into the front and rear door pockets, and most models feature an overhead storage space suitable for sunglasses. In addition to the larger main luggage compartment, there are storage units built into the sides and under the cargo platform for storing equipment such as car wash items or gloves. A special space for umbrellas is located under the rear seats.

An available Prius v seat material called SofTex is designed for easy cleaning, resisting spills and wear resistance in a family vehicle that could see heavy use on a daily basis. Soft to the touch, SofTex is lighter than leather and other traditional leatherette-type materials, and its production generates 99 percent fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than conventional synthetic leather production.
