2013 Toyota Prius v Three 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Could have been a better car. Driving Controls are ok. I don't even mind the central gauge cluster, but it looks looks horrible. The infotainment system is slow. The nav in my 10 year old BMW was faster at imputing destinations and finding routes. It has a resistive touchscreen which is also horrible. The Prius power train is not very refined carrying around the extra weight. A boat-like feeling at any speed and numb numb numb, but above 60 mph, the car has an unsettling unstable feeling. Brakes are overly grippy at low speeds and mushy at high. Besides my gripes, it is excellently packaged. It carries what I need it to carry and gets north of 40 mpg in mixed driving.
Favorite Features
Large cargo space. Fuel economy. Entune is sort of cool.
Suggested Improvements
The hybrid Camry power-train. Stiffer suspension. More even brake response. More thought in the display cluster. A nav which doesn't feel glacially slow. Get some proper soft plastics and not the stupid padded material on the dash board.
