Toyota Prius v Five is without doubt a family-oriented car. Toyota introduces space saving, family friendliness and incredible fuel economy with its new Prius v Five.
My week's test drive with Barcelona red metallic exterior and dark green interior Prius V was great For $ 37,41
With Toyota Toyota Prius V, Toyota shows that it has the business of catering to family-oriented car dealers down to a science.
Prius hybrid hatchback has been a big hit for Toyota because of the outstanding tool and exceptional fuel efficiency. Toyota Prius V is built on the same basic foundation formula as its ubiquitous sibling, with the addition of grease fits sails and load capacity.
With Prius V, you get essentially a stretched, wider Prius. V is one inch wider, 6 inches longer and 3 inches higher than the tailgate, with 60 percent more load capacity; Look behind the rear seats and you will find 34 cubic feet available for your load. The cabin is designed to handle most daily tasks. The rear seats slide, lay back and fold down, for example, and you can even hug unusually heavy loads thanks to the folded front passenger seat.
Superb fuel economy is of course a key part of Prius & # 39; appeal, and Prius V shares its hatchback drive: a 1.8-liter gas engine along with an electric motor and a nickel-metal hydride battery to generate a combined 134 horsepower. Although V is not as frugal as its smaller siblings (EPA ratings are 44 mpg city / 40 mpg highway and 42 mpg combined), mileage is still high enough to make it convincing in comparison to most of the choices in compact trolley / crossover segment.
The 2013 Toyota Prius V is available in three trim levels: The two, the three and five.
Standard Two-Pack Standard features 16-inch light metal fault, key-free ignition / input, a speed and telescopic steering wheel, automatic climate control, cruise control, a height adjustable driver's seat, a folded front passenger, a 60/40 split rear seat that slides and resets and a six speaker audio system with a CD player, an iPod / USB audio interface and Bluetooth connectivity / streaming audio.
The three adds a navigation system with voice controls along with a rear camera, satellite radio and HD radio. You also get Entune, Toyota's multimedia interface with text-to-voice functionality and app integration. The five provide 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, auto LED front lights, an automatic dimming rear mirror, upgraded padding (Toyota's new SofTex – an environmentally friendly leather alternative) and heated front seats.
An advanced technology package is offered with my five tests, including a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, an automated parallel parking system, an upgraded large-screen navigation system, a first-class eight-speaker audio system, a collision and Toyota safety system. Connect System.
2013 Prius V Toyota is motivated by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with a range of electric motors that provide a total power output of 134 hp and 153 lb with torque. The power is sent via a specialized continuous variable transmission (CVT).
In the tracking test, Prius V went from zero to 60 mph for 10.3 seconds.
On the safety side, every 2013, Toyota Prius V comes with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction, front airbags, side airbags and a driver's bodybag. Optional equipment includes a safety system before collision and Toyota's Safety Connect telematics system (which includes emergency assistance and a chair driver). In brake tests, Prius V stopped at 60 mph at 129 feet, which is a bit longer than the average.
Motor Safety Insurance Institute gave Prius V its highest possible rating of "Good" in frontal offset, side and tire strength tests.
Ease of use is the foremost theme of Prius V's cabin. The controls are big and clearly marked, and the shift handle is located within range, high on the center stack near the wheel. As such, this wagon is a good match for drivers with arthritis or other mobility challenges. Unfortunately, higher drivers still have to fight with a steering wheel that is located too far away. It's a telescope column, but it does not extend far enough.
On the plus side there are great storage possibilities in the cabin. For example, it's a big two-tiered glove box that swallows more than just a user manual, and it's a big center console with an open jaw under the center pile.
There is also no lack of technical facilities. Toyota's Entune – offering Bing search engine functionality, Pandora Internet radio, MovieTickets.com and real-time traffic, weather and fuel price information – is standard of three and five models. All Prius V models come with Bluetooth connectivity and music flow.
A sliding rear window slides for and behind, allowing you to choose between limolike legroom and expansive load capacity. Baggage capacity logs in to a very generous 34.3 cubic foot. Total load capacity is also excellent. With 67.3 cubic meters available with the rear seat, Prius V competes with the smallest crossover SUV.
Changing gear for Prius V Five was new. Toyota has a gear shift that is blue where you can change gear for driving, reverse and neutral; However, to place the vehicle in a park, press the P button. It was new to me and I think engineers should be applauded on such a small but good fit.
Until next week, drive safely, do not write and drive and let's stop the road.  Like this:
