Prius v Features

The hybrid all-rounder

While only marginally longer than the Prius Hatch, the Prius v can readily seat seven, or accommodate loads more cargo while still delivering outstanding fuel economy.

This exceptional economy is all down to Toyota’s proven Hybrid Synergy Drive system. Toyota has been manufacturing hybrid vehicles for many years now and as a result has developed a system which is both reliable and efficient.

Adapting this engineering expertise to the Prius v gives you the best of both worlds; a fuel-efficient, environmentally ‘greener’ vehicle, but with the practicality of a seven-seater wagon.

Hidden away

Here’s another reason why the Prius v is different from other hybrids; its powerful hybrid battery is slim enough to sit comfortably beneath the center console.

This clever packaging solution means that not only is there more room for passengers, there’s also maximum luggage capacity in the boot (where the hybrid battery used to go).

More storage under here

Hidden away underneath the boot floor is an underfloor storage box with an entire 60L storage capacity; the first aid kit, the kids’ tennis racquets or rugby boots, that enormous chicken and couscous salad you’re transporting to the barbeque with friends (and don’t want resting on your knee all the way there)… safe, secure and out of the way.

2+3+2 = impressive

The Prius v has a clever seating system that takes advantage of its 2+3+2 configuration, which gives you proper seven-seater wagon convenience, all the while retaining the economic and environmental benefits of running a hybrid.

If you’ve got extras to take to Saturday morning sport, or you’re off to the movies with a car-load of kids, or even if you’re transporting a few building supplies for the weekend DIY project, the flexible split-folding seats will really work for you. 

Inner space

Thinking of the Prius v as a spacious wagon, you’ll find there is plenty of luggage space inside.

With the rear third row seats folded down you’ll have a huge 505-litres of load space, and if you want more, the second and third row seats also fold away to provide extra luggage space.

But it doesn’t stop there; an under-floor storage compartment is also provided, along with places to stow things in the side compartments, the glove box and centre console.

Comfortable cabin

Close attention has been paid to driver and passenger comfort inside the Prius v’s roomy interior.

High quality trim materials have been used throughout the cabin, ensuring the Prius v has exemplary comfy seating for everyone.

The premium interior finish of the Prius v showcases an impressive array of comfort and convenience features, along with high quality combination black fabric and leather accented material seats.

Tempting tech

The technology on board the Prius v is both impressive and innovative. Beginning with a smart key entry and start system, you’ll also find Bluetooth handsfree phone and audio streaming capability, voice recognition, auxiliary and USB jacks and a CD tuner, all as part of a premium JBL eight speaker stereo system with GreenEdge amplifier.

There’s a handy reversing camera display to assist with parking manoeuvres and an integrated satellite navigation system with SUNA Traffic Channel functionality, all viewable through a high contrast 6.1” VGA touchscreen display.

A Head Up Display system, showing the driver speed as well as navigational indicators when the satellite navigation system is in use, is also included.

The feature-rich steering wheel contains handy controls for the audio system, cruise control, telephone functions, voice recognition software and four-way Multi-Information Display screen.

Hybrid synergy drive

Toyota has been manufacturing hybrid vehicles for many years now and as a result has developed a system which is both reliable and efficient.

Adapting this engineering expertise to the Prius v gives you the best of both worlds; a fuel-efficient, environmentally ‘greener’ vehicle, but with the practicality of a seven-seater wagon.

The 1.8-litre petrol engine in the Pruis v boasts 100kW of combined (petrol and electric) power and works in perfect harmony with the electric motor to provide real world performance when you need it. The system also recycles all the energy you’d normally lose when slowing down or braking and stores it in the car’s Lithium Ion battery.

This power then gets released again when you need to accelerate, so the hybrid systemhelps with on-road performance all while helping you achieve low emissions for a cleaner drive, along with ultra-low fuel combined fuel consumption of 4.4L/100km.

Safety is a Prius priority

As you’d expect the Prius v sets high standards for safety with an impressive array of active and passive safety features. 

The 5 Star ANCAP safety rated Prius v features a comprehensive suite of systems designed to keep the car on a stable footing in tight corners, heavy traffic, or where road conditions become hazardous, including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC), which work to keep the car on an even footing.

Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), Brake Assist (BA) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) all help to slow the vehicle in an even, predictable manner, especially under heavy braking. Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), meanwhile, makes starting off on an incline that much safer by automatically ‘holding’ the vehicle in place for a moment to allow the driver to move off without unintentionally coasting backwards.

Everything in its place

As you would expect of a car that can carry as many people as the Prius v can, everyone onboard has ample storage pockets and cup holders.

There’s also the glove box and a recess above the Prius v’s battery in the side-hinged centre bin for extra storage.

Extra shade

In addition to the lightweight sun shades in the ceiling above the front passenger and driver, rear seat passengers in the second row also have access to convenient manual blinds that scroll up from the door sills, giving extra shade; handy with sleeping children on those longer journeys out of town.

The New Standard is Set

Hybrids seamlessly switch between electricity and gas for fuel-efficient driving. In fact, Toyota hybrids can deliver a 30-40% saving in running costs over a similar sized petrol engine vehicle. It all adds up to the EECA giving Prius hybrids a rating of 5.5 stars out of 6 for energy efficiency.
