  • quiet and comfy ride.

  • disappointing interior materials.

The 2016 Toyota Prius V wagon carries on, even though the regular Prius has been redesigned. Yet it still offers an appealing combination of hybrid car fuel economy and family-friendly cargo space.

Vehicle overview

Toyota has made waves with the redesign of the 2016 Prius hatchback, but it will be at least another model year before the Prius V wagon moves to the new platform. Meantime, the carryover 2016 Prius V remains a good choice for hybrid shoppers seeking a roomier rear seat and more cargo capacity than that provided by the standard 2015 Prius.

The 2016 Toyota Prius V is a practical and efficient suburban people mover.

While the V's fuel efficiency isn't as lofty as that of the standard Prius, this versatile wagon is still in the fuel economy stratosphere. Its 42 mpg estimate for combined driving makes it one of the most fuel-efficient family cars you can buy. As is par for the course for the Prius family, though, the V is pretty bland to drive, and its lackluster acceleration means you must be more conservative with merging and passing maneuvers.

There are only a few other fuel-sipping wagons out there. One of our favorites is the 2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid, which offers more style, a nicer interior and better acceleration and handling. The Ford doesn't provide as much cargo space, however. The diesel-powered (TDI) version of the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is another possible alternative, but its status is in limbo due to the tailpipe emissions scandal. Overall, the competent, Edmunds "B"-rated Toyota Prius V remains a good pick in this group, thanks to its impressive versatility, frugality and abundance of Prius-style green cred.

2016 Toyota Prius v models

The 2016 Toyota Prius V (the V stands for "Versatility") is a five-passenger compact hybrid wagon available in four trim levels: Two, Three, Four and Five.

The base Two model rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and comes standard with heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, automatic climate control, cruise control, a six-way-adjustable driver seat, a fold-flat front passenger seat, a 60/40-split folding rear seat that slides and reclines, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, voice controls and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and iPod/USB audio interface.

The 2016 Prius V comes standard with a touchscreen interface and a rather futuristic central control layout.

The Three adds power lumbar support (driver seat), a fold-down rear center armrest, a multi-information display, a navigation system, smartphone app integration, satellite radio and HD radio. A panoramic sunroof is optional.

Going with the Prius V Four gets you leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, an eight-way power driver seat and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Finally, the Five model adds 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights and automatic LED headlights. The Advanced Technology package available on the Five includes the panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlight control, a premium JBL eight-speaker sound system, a pre-collision safety system and Toyota's Safety Connect system.

2016 Highlights

The 2016 Toyota Prius V is a direct carryover from the 2015 model year.

Performance & mpg

The 2016 Toyota Prius V is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine teamed with two electric motors and a battery pack. Combined output is 134 horsepower. Power is sent to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The 2016 Prius V returns an excellent 42 mpg in combined driving.

In our track testing, a Prius V accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 10.3 seconds, considerably slower than the Ford C-Max (8.1 seconds). The EPA rates this hybrid wagon at 42 mpg combined (44 city/40 highway), and we've found it easy to achieve these numbers in real-world driving.


Every 2016 Toyota Prius V comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag and a rearview camera.

The Prius V Five with the Advanced Technology package includes a pre-collision safety system (which tightens the seatbelts and initiates braking when a crash is deemed unavoidable) and Toyota's Safety Connect telematics system (which includes emergency assistance and a stolen-vehicle locator).

In brake testing, a Prius V stopped from 60 mph in 122 feet, a respectable distance for the segment.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given the Prius V its highest possible rating of "Good" in the moderate-overlap and small-overlap frontal-offset impact tests. It also earned a "Good" score for the side-impact, roof-strength and head restraints and seat (whiplash protection) tests.


The 2016 Toyota Prius V's ride quality is remarkably smooth and comfortable around town as well as on the highway. It's an easy car to drive and should keep green-oriented owners quite satisfied. But the Prius' handling limits are low and the steering effort is very light and relays minimal information to the driver on how the car is connecting to the road. Acceleration is underwhelming as well. Highway merging and passing requires some planning, and the CVT's tendency to keep the engine droning at high rpm is off-putting.


The Prius V's cabin places user-friendliness above all else. Controls are large and clearly labeled, and the shift lever is within easy reach, mounted high on the center stack near the steering wheel. Unfortunately, taller drivers must contend with a steering wheel that's placed too far away. The steering column telescopes, but doesn't extend nearly far enough from the dash. Storage compartments abound. There are two stacked gloveboxes and a large center console bin, along with an open nook beneath the center stack.

Don't look behind the 2016 Prius V's steering wheel for driver information; it's over in the middle, above the vents.

While the cabin may excel in functionality, it's not especially attractive. The gauges are nestled in a recessed area in the middle of the dashboard, leaving the area in front of the steering wheel open and unfinished-looking. Furthermore, the quality of the materials is inconsistent; some plastics are nicely grained, while others look flimsy and low-budget. Toyota's Entune touchscreen interface and smartphone app integration system (Prius V Two and up) works fine, but the C-Max Hybrid's new Sync 3 interface is easier to use and has a bigger screen.

The split-folding rear seat reclines and slides fore and aft, allowing you to choose limo-like legroom, expansive cargo capacity or anything in between. It also provides good headroom for taller passengers. Luggage capacity behind the rear seats is a generous 34.3 cubic feet. Total cargo capacity is also excellent. With 67.3 cubic feet available with the rear seats down, the Prius V rivals most small crossover SUVs.

Zero to Sixty in 43 MPG
Two 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I love my Prius V! What other wagon would get you 43 mpg with this amount of cargo space. My family of four fit perfectly in it, that we rarely use or Sienna (which we also love). The car is slow, but that it is because I drive it slow. I am more aware of my driving and I would say that I'm a safer driver now. From a stop, I will accelerate quickly to the speed limit and then keep a light foot to keep the speed. I don't race to stop signs or red lights, I coast to them. In traffic, I don't accelerate fast to catch up to the person in front of me, but I slowly accelerate to them. When I put the car in cruise control at 70mph, it shows that I get 40+ mpg. It's like learning how to drive again. I'm a quarter way through my second tank of gas at mile 650. My first tank averaged 42 mpg, my current tank is averaging 46mpg. My brother has a 2006 Prius with 300k+ miles, so I hope this one will go beyond that.

Two 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
My second Prius......very happy w/car...I knew it didn't have blinding acceleration before I bought it....lots of leg room. Would highly recommend window tint and getting a windshield eyebrow tint installed...sun beats in at eye level....just the right size for around town problem on freeway going 75-80

Outstanding Value!

Five 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I reduced my rating on climate control. When cold weather came I tried to use heater. There is no switch for just the heater. Just A.C. I put on Auto and could get heat by raising temp control. Either the controls are just to confusing or there is not a button for this. The seat heater control is to low and dangerous to use. It requires bending over to see and push taking your eyes away from highway. It also does not have an automatic turn off. Prius V-5 is an outstanding car with exception of above. I would recommend to Toyota to change to having a larger battery system to be able to use battery drive only for more at least 10 miles not just a couple of hundred yards. If you want a SUV Hybrid with lots of room, excellent mileage, comfortable seats, excellent visibility, really good storage space, good mileage, but not the price of Luxury car this one is for you. The car rides smoothly enough as a non luxury car but could be better at low speeds. Our Prius V has excellent mileage if you use the ECO setting. I average above the estimated mileage of 41 to around 44. Of course on ECO setting you have to realize the power will be much lower when you need acceleration. But when I found I needed power to enter an on ramp it was there and did very well. The storage is in rear is outstanding as well room in back seat. My wife loves all the storage space in glove compartment, number of cup holders, and other storage space. The video display is to small. I do not like the back up camera. It only peeps when in reverse it does not give you actual audio warning on how close you are backing. It just has a color guide. I wanted to add a towing package to carry my bike but this model does not come with one. To carry bike I use the back storage now with back seats down. The controls for safety are on the left side of dash and are too low. You cannot see them to operate them. They should be higher and more easily seen. The gas tank is small. Even though you get excellent mileage the tank is 12 gallons. One thing I did not know and not listed as a feature. We have a double sun roof. It is really large and allows a view for both front and back passengers. It does not open though. I discovered if I park the car in the sun with the moon roof open when I return the moon roof shade is closed. I thought I had just forgot and closed it but I intentionally parked in the sun and then returned to find the sun shade closed on it's own. This is an excellent feature to keep car cool when parked in the sun (we live in Florida). Another feature I would like to see is passenger seat controls which are manual to electrical and add an up and down control as well as lumbar. Would really help with front seat passenger comfort. I would purchase the car again without hesitation. It has been the best car with best features for the best price. If Toyota would just change the above it would move from an excellent car to an outstanding car. Having issues with original tires. Only have 26K on them (Toyo Tires) but need to be replaced. Was told by Toyo that they do not warranty original tires on my vehicle. Very troublesome that Toyota would put Toyo tires on Prius if they have no warranty. I learned from Toyota they will not longer manufacturer the Prius V. Too bad! Not only a great car but the storage capacity of this wagon/SUV was tremendous.

Pinto Lover Moves On
Jack Walden,07/30/2016
Two 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Okay, so the Prius v reminds me of the new 1979 Pinto wagon my wife and I went on our honeymoon in. But only in the most basic ways. The color. When my friend started driving Priuses in '06 I made every kind of joke possible including one about buying two Corolas, one for Sunday - for the same money. So I coughed it up for a '16 model 2 and have been in hybrid bliss ever since. I traded a Honda Fit in. It was one of the last Japanese '13s available. I put 57,000 miles on it in two years. It was causing me pain. Not from a lack of reliability or the type of pain that sprouts from a hip pocket. It was cheap, very good and cheap. I was beginning to avoid driving because of the neck and shoulder pain it created. And fortunately for me I wasn't going to be driving as much. My new car rides smooth and the seat has allowed me to drive for up to six hours without my neck throbbing. Some critics complain about the lack of exceleration, but I have not felt underpowered even in heavy interstate traffic.The Prius is quite. Really quite, pedestrians are frequently surprised by it in parking lots. Oh, and the mpg, 45.8 in the first 2500 miles with the AC blasting away. Even though I got the lowest trim level, the Bluetooth works perfect, and the back up camera is great. All in all it is a well thought out design. The door openings are very wide making it easy for this senior citizen to access every area. I'm yet to lay the back seats down and actually haul something. The car is so nice I don't want it to be utilitarian. I had the windows tinted. 57 months later and it still feels tight like a much newer car than one that is a couple of hundred miles less than 90,000. I’ve kept the oil changed and replaced the tires twice. A road hazard destroyed two of the second set. I’ve never kept a car so long. I’m saving this one for my grandson, he is 7. More, More August 5, 2017 On the first anniversary of my car's purchase I had clocked 22,000 miles. My wife and I visited Austin, the big antique shows at Round Top in late March, and Columbus, Ohio about a month later. The Prius is a fine auto to travel in. We can't get over how much space is inside. In my earlier post I mentioned that the I hadn't lowered the seats, well now a little of the new is worn off and it's being treated more like a wagon. I'm a younger retiree and I enjoy raising plants in containers. We also have a booth in an antique mall, so frequently the wagon hauls something besides groceries and grandchildren. My wife drives an Honda mini van and it sits at home as much as possible. I much prefer my Prius to her fine van, before you get to the gas mileage issue. I'm still averaging around 45 even with the iceberg of an air conditioner on full blast. I have breathing issues and the heat really knocks me out, sometimes I let it idle for 15 to 30 minutes and it doesn't seem to wreck the mileage. I've really enjoyed the free 2 year service Toyota provides. I plan on staying faithful to my dealer and even purchasing my tires from them. In the past I have tried to avoid the service department, I'm a terrible skeptic thst sold Lincolns in the early 1980's. I've seen some service departments that make a casino look like a consumer affairs counseling center. Over all I'm very, very, pleased and particular about this wonder wagon. It is my favorite car of a life filled with the new car smell. If I have to replace it, I would try to get the highest trim level so I could get the JBL radio. My only complaint is that the dash shows dust. 12,073 miles ... my wife has retired and I don't get to drive my car every day. She has an Odyssey mini van that gets a little more than half of the mpg I'm getting in the Prius. It's a very nice ride, but it's not a Prius. It feels big and bulky. It's hard to park, but it does seat eight. There have been no problems with my Prius, but I do take it in to the dealership for service. It's free for the first 24,000 miles. They even rotate the tires. I had a bit of a medical emergency that resulted in an ambulance ride. My young GP parked my Prius in a safe place. I was afraid to leave it the main parking lot overnight. I am a bit pocessive concerning the car. He asked me as I was being rolled along on the gurney, "Jack, does your car have a motor in it?" It was a great laugh at his expense. Today I'm going to remove my grandson's car seat and lay the back seats flat. Then the stereo will blast Joshua Bell's new Bach recording via Bluetooth from my phone, very loudly, on my way to pick up a 175 year old Sheraton chest my wife bought yesterday. I guess some of the new has worn away. Here's to old friends in the making. If there has been a failure in my long time relationship with Toyota it would be that I don't drive them long enough. 135,000 miles is the most I've ever put on one, I hope to top that this time. The Prius v continues to be my favorite car I recommend it highly.

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
