KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 11/9/2012


The 2013 Prius V is the big papa in Toyota's growing Prius family. The Prius V uses the same powertrain and has similar looks as the regular Prius 4-door hatchback, but offers a larger cargo hull that Toyota boasts is roomier than that of many small SUVs. The "V" in this 5-passenger hybrid stands for "versatility," and it aims to offer just that for families or those who need room to haul their stuff but cringe at the notion of doing it in a thirsty SUV. The Prius V is a tad slower than the traditional Prius but offers a smoother highway ride and innovative rear seats that slide, fold and recline. Above all, the Prius V is fuel-efficient, with a 42-mpg combined city/highway rating. Did we like it? We did – we were impressed enough to name this Prius one of the 10 Best Family Cars of 2013.

You'll Like This Car If...

Prius V is a great choice for those who want a vehicle that offers lots of room and super fuel economy. Those new to hybrids should find assurance in Toyota's decade-plus history of successfully making these gasoline-electric powertrains.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The 2013 Prius V's price premium can complicate its long-term value equation compared with equally roomy alternatives. Meanwhile, the new Ford C-Max is a tempting rival with even higher fuel economy. If you need towing ability, look to a small SUV or a stouter wagon such as the Volvo XC70.

What's New for 2013

Changes for 2013 are minimal since the Prius V debuted just last year. A new exterior color called Seaglass Pearl is available, and top-trim Prius V Five models receive a SofTex-trimmed steering wheel.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Because it uses the same powertrain and is built on the same platform as the standard Prius, there's little surprise that the Prius V feels similar to its slightly smaller sibling. Because the Prius V is larger and heavier, it's a tad slower, but quick acceleration and the ability to carve mountain roads have never been the Prius hybrid's forte, nor something its drivers expect. But don't sweat: Getting up to speed on freeways is no problem, especially when the 2013 Prius V is in Power mode. The hybrid's transitions between electric motor and gasoline engine remain refined, as does the Prius V's regenerative braking system. Both take some time getting used to, but the adjustment period is short and well worth the fuel savings reaped.

Favorite Features

VERSATILE INTERIOR SPACE
Versatility is the name of the game for the Prius V's interior. The rear seats slide to create legroom for passengers or space in the cargo bay for your gear. In addition to folding in a 60/40 split, the rear seats recline. Need to carry a long item like a surfboard? The front passenger seat folds flat, too.

ENTUNE
With this high-tech system, you can connect a smartphone via Bluetooth or a cable and then perform tasks such as ordering movie tickets or listening to Internet radio using your voice or the vehicle's controls.
