2016 Toyota Prius v Edmonton AB
In contrast to the city-focused 2016 Toyota Prius c, which we also recently detailed in a model research page of its own, the 2016 Toyota Prius v in Edmonton AB was designed with growing families in mind. Superb efficiency on both the highway and through city streets, the cabin of the Prius v was where the designers and engineers directed most of their attention. Not just in terms of technology and features, but in terms of space and versatility. The Prius v is the biggest member of the family, so that drivers can fit their family in the vehicle comfortably.
Specs & Features of the 2016 Toyota Prius v
The 2016 Toyota Prius v is powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine in conjunction with a high-torque electric motor, which allows it not only to be powered by up to 136 horsepower but also achieve a combined fuel economy rating of 5.6 l/100km, which is pretty impressive. It may not be as low as the Prius c, but the v was designed to carry much more weight and, when it comes down to it, is quite a bit bigger, so that shouldn’t come as a surprise.
But the most important aspect of the 2016 Toyota Prius v is its capacities. The interior is so spacious it might as well be a small crossover, rather than a large hatchback sedan. Behind the back row alone, it offers 34.3 cu. ft. of space for you to fill with whatever cargo you may have. Drop that back row flat and it opens up 67.3 cu. ft., which is on part with many crossovers, as we stated.
The Prius v almost creates the perfect median between a minivan and crossover, and adding that hybrid drivetrain only sweetens the pot. If you think it might be the right vehicle for you and your family, be sure to schedule a test drive here on our site to take one for a spin yourself.
