2016 Toyota Prius v Edmonton AB
When the Prius v was initially conceived for the 2012 model year, it was designed to essentially become a hybrid minivan, though on a smaller scale. In a way, the Prius v is a much more fashionable version of the station wagons of yesteryear built with a hybrid drivetrain. While the standard Toyota Prius was completely renovated and rocketed into the next generation for 2016, the 2016 Toyota Prius v in Edmonton AB doesn’t see quite as many changes. But that doesn’t make the ultra-efficient family car any less impressive.
Of course, in true Toyota fashion, the vehicle is outfitted with tons of safety features to deliver a sense of confidence to its drivers and help make the roads safer worldwide. Features like Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Smart Stop Technology are just a few of the things keeping you and your family safe behind the wheel of the Prius v.
Efficiency and Space in the 2016 Toyota Prius v
Let’s get right down to business by taking a gander at the fuel efficiency ratings of the newest Prius v. While its slightly larger size means it’s not quite as efficient as the other models in the Prius family, it still achieves an outstanding 5.3 l/100km when driving through city streets. Taking it onto the highway won’t see a huge change either, as it only drops to 5.9 l/100km, joining together for a 5.6 l/100km combined fuel economy rating.
What’s truly impressive in the Prius v, and what uniquely sets it apart from the rest of the Prius family, is the surprising amount of space found inside the vehicle. The hybrid has a cargo hold behind the rear seats worthy of being in a crossover, offering 34.3 cubic feet of space. But if you drop those 60/40-splitting seats to open up even more space then you’ve got 67.3 cu. ft. to mess with. With seating for up to 5 passengers, 97.2 cu. ft. of cabin space will provide plenty of room for them to stretch out and get comfortable.
