2012 Toyota Prius v Five 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I almost opted for the hatchback because the V MPG rating is not as good, and I could get 0% financing.
So glad I went for it because driving to/from work (17 mi each way) in Houston rush hour traffic, I'm averaging around 50 mpg!
The temp has been in the 60-70's, so have been using the ac.
When it gets colder, the mpg might not be as good, since the engine will have to run more to keep me warm.
I have a Five w/out Advanced Tech Package.
I love everything about it, except so far, I can't get Entunes to work--have an I-phone.
Not a big deal, except I hate not being able to use something I paid for. I chose the Five because I did not want cloth seats.
So far, I'm pleased.
MPG, keyless, voice activated hands-free bluetooth phone, built-in navigation system, automatic on/off lights, back up camera.
Made a 3-hr trip driving between 60-75mph.
Averaged 38 mpg.
I know it was the 70-75 mph that put me below the 40 mpg highway average, but I wanted to see what the damage would be driving the speed limit when over 65 mph.
I was driving toward the Texas Hill Country, so did have to drive over a few small hills.
Never felt the need to get out of eco mode, but I'm sure that affected my mpg also.
