2017 Toyota Prius v

Pros: Outstanding fuel economy; excellent passenger room and cargo space for the class; well-designed small-items storage

Cons: Middling acceleration; some lackluster cabin materials; pronounced road noise at highway speeds

CG Says: The 2017 Toyota Prius v is little changed. The Entune multimedia control system now incorporates Apple Siri Eyes-Free capability. Though Prius v gives up some fuel economy compared to the original Prius, its excellent packaging makes it an arguably more attractive option for families and active folks looking for better gas mileage than most any midsize car or SUV can deliver. This is a practical, roomy wagon that can easily achieve 40 mpg and be purchased in well-equipped form for $30,000 or less. Prius v is one of the best values on the market today.
