Review: Toyota 2013 Prius v


The Prius v has all the room of a Brady Bunch station wagon, but manages to do it in a sassy and classy way. Most everything you need is in this Prius including a jazzy color – Blizzard Pearl. Storage area all the way around from cup space, perfectly-placed center console with armrest and storage, and of course the back seat.

I can’t emphasize enough the convenience of this tear-drop shaped innovative design. You feel like you have running room in the Prius v with a hatch-style door featuring a 34.3 cu. ft. of cargo space. Two sizeable roof windows make up the panoramic view moon roof. With power shades that work in unison, it can open up the view for your passengers. It features a 60/40 split sliding and reclining fold-down rear seat.

Like the Prius c, the gas mileage leaves you craving nothing but hybrids. And the increased acceleration capacity of big brother compared to the smaller Prius c is a welcome ride.

The MSRP at just under $27,000 seems like a steal. The MPG city/highway driving is 44/40.
