Default 2012 Toyota Prius V: The Full Report

All-New v First Drive:
2012 is a year of extremes for the Toyota Prius. Toyota has just unveiled the smallest Prius ever, the Prius C, which is priced under $20K and gets more than 50 mpg. And on the other extreme, Toyota has just introduced the largest Prius, the all-new v, which is bigger in every dimension than the stock Prius. The v in the 2012 Prius v represents ďversatilityĒ and not for the...Read More.

Cargo Carrying Champ:
The 2012 Prius v resembles a small minivan, not unlike the Mazda5, or maybe like a Honda Fit without the sharp edges. The coefficient of drag is 0.29, which is very sleek by SUV standards . But inside the all-new Prius v is what the news is all about. Inside the Prius v's cabin, the design is plainer than you'll find in the competition just like in the standard Prius.

The v offers three selectable modes in addition to...Read More.

Sleek For An SUV-Like Vehicle:
Because it's 230 pounds heavier than the standard sedan, the all-new 2012 Prius v handles and corners better than the hatchback. It's not too big and itís easy to drive around town. The Prius v also feels more stable at highway speeds than the sedan. The ride in the new v is quite smooth and comfortable, but acceleration is far from brisk, but what should we expect from a...Read More.

New v Is Bigger In Every Dimension:
Itís the 2012 Prius vís cargo carrying ability that will get small SUV consumers excited. Toyota claims the Prius v offers more cargo space than 80 percent of the compact SUVs and mid-size wagons on the market with 34.3 cubic feet. And that can be expanded another six cubic feet by sliding the 60/40 rear seats forward another seven inches. The v leads the way in another energy-efficient way: its...Read More
