It's a Prius, It's What You Expect
By hendolvik on
Vehicle2013 Toyota Prius v Five 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewI bought a Volvo XC60 in November 2012 to haul my kids and giant dog, but after 4 months of getting 15 mpg, I traded it in for a new Prius V. Instead of getting lousy gas mileage, I now get good gas mileage, but not as good as I expected. After 8 months, I average 33 mpg. Hubby says I book it off the line too quickly. I say it's the extra 125 pounds of dog that I'm transporting that he isn't. Either way, it's twice as fuel efficient as both my previous minivan and Volvo XC60, so it's a win. I won't lie: I miss the luxury of the Volvo. The seats were more comfortable, the doors were more solid. The Prius V doesn't feel cheap, but it's certainly not luxurious. At least it has built-in nav.
Best FeaturesBuilt-in navigation; lots of cup holders; dual heated seats; backup camera
