2015 Toyota Prius v Peoria IL


New 2015 Toyota Prius v at Peoria Toyota Scion near Peoria, IL

The Prius v is a bigger, wagon-variant of the Prius hybrid. It's intended to offer more room for families than the standard Prius; the "v" stands for versatility. The added usability comes in the form of more backseat space and cargo room. It competes with the Ford C-Max Hybrid. The v is part of the "Prius family," which also includes the Prius c city car and Prius Plug-In. Those models are covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

Under the Prius v's Hood

The standard Prius drive-train carries over largely unchanged to the Prius wagon, despite a weight gain of a good 300 pounds. There are four driving modes: regular Drive; Eco mode, which optimizes settings for better mileage; Power mode, which increases gas-pedal sensitivity for better acceleration; and EV-Drive mode, which stays in electric mode as long as possible, provided the battery has enough power.

Design of Toyota Prius v

The Prius v is wider, heavier, and taller than its sibling. The more slab sided shape of the v, along with its vertical lift-gate, sets it apart from the sloping roof and horizontal lift-gate of the Prius Liftback. Drivers familiar with the traditional Prius are likely to appreciate that the V's rear window is a single piece of continuous glass rather than the split panes of the Prius hatchback, one of them at an angle and the other upright.
