2013 Toyota Prius v Three 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I bought this wagon for the cargo space, gas mileage, and it's a Toyota which holds its value well. The interior cargo space is about the same as a small SUV but with much better gas mileage.
I am averaging 38-42, and that's driving at the speed limit. Plenty of head and leg room (I'm 5'9). Voice command can be slow at times, hatch door is heavy to close, a lot of little extras missing for such an expensive car such as (sun visor extensions, rear a/c, remote use for hatch door, only one power adapter plug in the front). Aside from it's several flaws, I still love it!
Great alternative to the small gas guzzling SUVs! However, if you are looking for a fun and fast car, this is not it.
Reclining rear seats.
Back up camera. Sliding seats when folded for more cargo space.
Additional assisted breaking option.
A remote for the heavy hatch door would be nice.
More refined interior styling.
Breaks could be less spongy.
Added power outlet in the front.
A little bit more power during acceleration.
Better standard sound system.
