Prius V three - 2013
By rzca on
2013 Toyota Prius v Three 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Our Chevy just used too much gas so we traded for a Prius V.
Since we already own a hybrid we were not surprised or troubled by some of the things people mention here regarding acceleration, etc.
We have found the fit and finish of the car to be excellent - the materials are what we would expect in a vehicle that was designed to maximize fuel economy.
Everything works beautifully from the Nav to the radio - it is simple, intuitive and well designed.
I am 6 feet tall and have no trouble being comfortable in the driver's, front passenger's or rear passenger's seats (which recline!).
The cargo space is truly amazing - we love this car and recommend it highly!
Navigation; radio; AC; fuel economy (which at the moment is at 48.6 and that includes highway driving for a 35 mile stretch where we were doing about 75 MPH); crisp handling and a small turning radius; huge cargo space; extremely comfortable seats; wonderful storage space all around the car including under the back cargo mat; excellent driving position and visibility; Toyota fit and finish, which we find to be excellent and what we would expect in a car designed to attain extraordinary fuel efficiency; the way cool shift lever; and Entune.
Would have liked the auto headlights setting to be available on the middle model (the three) rather than only on the top model; would like to have a power lift gate but that isn't a big deal.
