2012 Toyota Prius v Two 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I purchased my Prius V in December 2012.
I wanted 40 mpg and there are few cars in this class.
I considered the Ford C Max, but to get a driver's seat with lumbar support, I had to upgrade to the SEL model, while the Prius 2 package has lumbar support.
And C Max has not been getting the mileage as advertised.
The V rides well and I've been averaging 40mpg so far during winter driving... (Minnesota).
The car is very comfortable and feels very similar to my old Pontiac Vibe.
The seats are very comfortable and the interior is much roomier than the Prius liftback, especially in the front.
My only complaint is the car is a bit slow.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.
