Stop for snacks, not gas in the 2017 Toyota Prius v. With its EPA-estimated 41 mpg combined, the 2017 Prius v helps make those frequent fill-ups a thing of the past.
Thanks to its sleek, aerodynamic design, Prius v always takes the path of least air resistance. With its familiar triangular silhouette allowing for a cabin shape designed and optimized for airflow, Prius v effortlessly slices the air while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and increasing overall efficiency.
Prius v maximizes efficiency from the moment you put your foot to the pedal. From its initial slow acceleration to low speeds, Prius v can be powered solely by the high-torque electric motor under certain conditions. However, some conditions require more power to navigate. During heavy acceleration, the Prius v gasoline engine is used while the battery supplies increased drive power to the electric motor.
Prius v is efficient whether it's moving or not. Slow it down, and the gas engine can shut off and the electric motor can convert momentum into electricity, storing it in the hybrid battery. Come to a complete stop, and Prius v can conserve fuel and reduce smog-forming emissions by again shutting off the gas engine.
Prius v is rated as a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV), a designation indicating it produces considerably fewer smog-forming emissions than an average gasoline-powered vehicle. Prius v offers different modes for different types of driving. ECO Mode helps maximize fuel economy. EV Mode runs solely on battery power for up to one-half mile under certain conditions. And POWER Mode increases gas pedal response for enhanced acceleration.
Refreshingly, the term "fill 'er up" can now refer to cargo. Pop open the rear hatch-style door and you'll unveil a full 34.3 cu. ft. of cargo space - so you can carry the essentials you need for a fun-filled journey. In addition to its cavernous cargo area, Prius v offers a wealth of smaller storage compartments for items like gloves, a flashlight or even a first aid kit.
With its available Entune Premium JBL Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, Prius v has the tech to help make your life easier and more fun. Featuring a 6.1-in. touch-screen display, integrated navigation system, Siri® Eyes Free, JBL® Premium Audio and a suite of popular apps, it's one smart way to help you stay connected.
