2016 Toyota Prius v Specs & Features
The 2016 Toyota Prius v is the biggest member of the Prius family, as it is designed for families – hence the versatility.

“The Prius v is the largest hybrid in the Prius line-up and comes with an impressive complement of standard features and advanced technologies – in a vehicle that meets the needs of Canadian families. Canadians have embraced our industry leading selection of advanced hybrid models. And with generous comfort, convenience, technology and safety features as standard – plus remarkable efficiency and environmental performance – the Prius v is a real-world, tested and proved vehicle that’s also incredibly versatile,”
