2017 Toyota Prius v vs 2017 Ford C-Max Hybrid
Among the four models that will make up the 2017 Toyota Prius family, the Prius v might not be the most popular. With the sporty redesign of the standard Prius, the always-sporty Prius c and the all-new, technologically advanced Prius Prime, it’s easy to see that the Prius v – a family-oriented wagon – might not be the most popular model. But it still makes an excellent option for family drivers shopping in the hybrid market, that don’t want a full-blown crossover. We thought we’d see how the Prius v measures up to other hybrid family vehicles, by comparing the 2017 Toyota Prius v vs 2017 Ford C-Max Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota Prius v
The table above showcases some of the most important specifications in family vehicles like these, so we figured we’d jump right in at the top row and analyze the two vehicles side by side. Obviously, fuel efficiency is the most important factor, considering we’re looking at hybrid vehicles. While 0.3 l/100km might not be a huge advantage, it still gives the Prius v a leg up on its competitor. It’s going to save you money in the long run, even if it’s only some spare change.
Nearly as important as fuel efficiency in these vehicles, considering they’re family cars, is space. Let’s start behind the back seats, where the Prius v offers an extra 9.8 cubic feet of space to fill with groceries, luggage or whatever else you might need to bring along with you. Now let’s drop those back seats to open up even more room. Here, the Prius v’s advantage expands even more, as it offers an extra 14.7 cu. ft. of space.
Lastly, passenger volume, arguably even more important than cargo capacity. A family vehicle is meant to be packed with family members, and you want to make sure that those family members have plenty of space to stretch out their limbs and get comfortable. In the Prius v, you’ll have an extra 7.3 cu. ft. of space to do just that.
