The Prius v is packed with functionality that makes it a truly practical hybrid vehicle. Practical to run and practical to own, with excellent fuel efficiency and driver-friendly technology that makes it as comfortable for an open road journey as it is easy to park in the city.
Hybrid Synergy Drive. Efficient yet powerful.
Toyota’s well proven Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) is a full hybrid system. It includes a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor powered by a Lithium Ion battery. This is matched to perform in perfect harmony with a petrol-driven combustion engine. Both the petrol and the electric motors in the engine management system can power the car alone or in combination allowing Prius drivers to enjoy responsive power with low emissions and ultra-low fuel consumption.
Engine – Combining efficiency with performance
The new Prius v features a 1.8L, 4 cylinder, In-line, 16 valve Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) petrol engine with Variable Valve Timing-intelligent (VVT-i) and Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI).
In both Power and ECO modes Prius v delivers a quiet comfortable ride that’s also very responsive. ECO mode helps maximise fuel economy and Power mode increases accelerator pedal sensitivity for additional get-up-and-go.
One look tells you it’s a Prius
This may be a practical wagon but it is still very much a Prius, with progressive styling that hits new benchmarks for aerodynamic performance and efficiency.
Comfort as well as capacity
Settle in to Prius v's supportive seating and you'll realise the attention that's been paid to driver and passenger comfort. The high quality of trim, upholstery and thoughtful instrumentation layout all combine to enhance the Prius v driving experience.
Latest technology, including Bluetooth handsfree phone and audio streaming capability and voice recognition, is incorporated into the Prius v touchscreen audio.
Safety is a Prius priority. As you’d expect the new Prius v sets high standards with an impressive array of active and passive safety features.
