About Toyota Prius v

As the largest member of Toyota's family of Prius vehicles, the 2017 Prius V combines the eye-popping fuel economy for which these hybrids are known with cargo flexibility that puts some SUVs to shame. The numbers don't lie, and they all strengthen the Prius V's case as an excellent alternative to a small crossover SUV: up to 43 mpg, over 67 cubic feet of cargo space with rear seats folded, and a starting price around $27,500. Like a small SUV, the Prius V has a roomy hatchback design and seating for five. It isn't the swiftest thing on the road and its styling probably won't dazzle the neighborhood kids, but in terms of economics, efficiency and practicality, it's hard to beat the Prius V.

"I bought the 2016 Prius V Five after driving a 2002 Prius for 14 years and only having two repairs in all that time, with each of the two repairs costing about $600. I've never driven or owned a car as reliable, so how could I buy anything else? I am VERY happy with my new Prius, especially all the high tech gadgetry the V Five comes with when you opt for the admittedly expensive high tech package. I'm 66, so if this car lasts 14 years as reliably as my last Prius, it's probably the last car I'll ever buy."

"I really like this automobile. I have over 69000 km on it in two and a half years of driving. There was one software update free from Toyota and regular maintenance only so far. This Prius has plenty of power when driving in "power" mode and does not seem to use much more fuel to do so. The car was just over twenty seven thousand brand new and the fuel savings are great! It's a comfortable drive on highways as well as around town. The seats even the rear which are reclinable are comfortable on long trips and lots of cargo space! So far it has been very reliable and I hope it continues. I would like to drive it for 8 to 10 years."

"The Prius V v is a great car, good gas mileage (averaging 42 mpg) even on my trips back and forth to Florida (1365 Mimes one way). Can't stand the Road Noise while highway driving. You have to practically yell to the person in the back seat. In addition, forget listening to the Radio/CD while on the highway... Too much Road Noise. I do a lot of highway driving and am about to trade for a quieter car. Love the cargo storage area... 63 cubic feet. For city and non highway driving it's fantastic. I would recommend it if it was used for city driving."
