Car and Driver Review: 2013 Toyota Prius V

The Toyota Prius, the car that started the hybrid revolution, has raised the bar by being available in three different sizes to fulfill every customer’s wishes. Apart from the classic Prius, the vehicle can be purchased both as a subcompact under the name Toyota Prius c, or as a compact MPV, known as the Prius V.

If the c model is best suitable for people who drive mostly in urban areas, the Prius V makes a good choice for the open road, offering increased comfort, safety and high mileage.

Offered in three levels of trim, all powered by the 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid drivetrain, the entry level Prius V Two comes with a price tag of $26,650 and comes with Smart Key System, Display Audio with integrated backup camera, seven airbags, Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, ABS, Smart Stop Technology and the Hybrid Synergy Drive with EV/ECO/Power Modes to provide up to 44 mpg (5.3 l/100 km).
