2015 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 Toyota Prius v is cosmetically freshened for 2015 via a new front fascia and new taillights. An 8-way power driver’s seat is newly available, as are LED projector-beam headlights. Toyota’s Entune multimedia system has been upgraded as well. 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 bought with most every feature you could want for $30,000 or less. Prius v is one of the best values on the market today.
