A review from Quebec...
By sergag on
2012 Toyota Prius v Two 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
First I apologize abouut my bad english. I have the basic canadian version, slightly different from your's. Already drove 4000 km (2500m.) with it, mostly on highway. Average mileage, cold temperature: 52.3miles/Imp. gallon (160oz.). Best mileage: 72.4 miles/imp. gallon (on 20 miles) Best electric autonomy: 3.4 km. (2.1miles). Better than what figure in owner manual.
Overall, that's the best car I had. Great fuel economy, good handling, a lot of equipment, very comfortable and large cargo space.
It's funny to drive, trying to gett the best from the gas tank all the time.
Engine is noisy when U climb a hill, could be improved.
Like all Toyota, it's affected by lateral winds.
For our cold climate, Toyota should add a warm reserve, as the engine start only to warm up or warm the car.
I would rather pay more and get a bigger battery.
This model is ready for 7 seats version. Cargo space couls be improved on 5 seats version.
Computer's averages (on tank, trips, etc.) not accurate. Only makes an average of many readings.
Back up camerand audio system are so so.
