Best vehicle we have ever owned.
We love our 2013 Prius V, whilst it may not have as much power as a Camry (which 2.5lt engine would be nice) the fact that it is such a brilliant vehicle space wise just blows everything out of the water for us.
It has space easily for 3 child restraints or two adults and a child restraint, whilst not having passengers completely cramped.
Rear cargo space is simply unrivalled, we have done many Ikea trips in this vehicle and have had nothing left behind with even huge loads. The trifold middle row is simply brilliant!
A car that really is ...under rated and we adore it so much that after 6 years of ownership we are now looking to upgrade to the new version so we have have the car for another 10 or so years. Hands down a winner, don’t even waste energy and time on a Rav if you have a family because thw rear seat is a horrible size and shape. Try the Prius V and walk away a very happy family.
Purchased in November 2013 for $42,000.00.
great with kids
had prius v for 5 years. good interior. cheap to run. average 4.5l/100ks serviced with toyota which is a bit steap. about $400, but was only once per year. no mechanical issues. build quality good.
not a lot of power. rubbery, laboured handling but never felt dangerous. plenty of warning with understeer for cornering limits. basically car feels heavy.
great car if you have kids. huge interior for a smaller footprint than a van.
easy to park.
sun glare on centre touch screen was annoying. much better for passenger to use.
long trips seats can get a bit uncomfortable
overall, car for the money was great. just wont blow your mind.
Perfect Small 7 Seater
I have owned the car since new for over a year now
average fuel consumption is around 4.2 - 4.4 L / 100km city driving , Highway is round 5.5L /100km. It requires 95Ron fuel.
so quiet and economical, fits 3 child seat. love the facelift version's look. Cant be more happier : )
Find out how Toyota Prius V ZVW40 compares to other Wagons
Know better, choose better.
Very economical fuel and silent. I do not have to worry about the fuel. However I just found out for long distance driving the engine does not have a great power. I used to drive VW golf and would recommend this cat is nice to drive in city and suburbs area only not interstate. Thank you.
So far So good
I do normally change the car at least once in a year. 4 Kids..all under 3, So you have very limited choices.
I found this better compared to my previous Mazda Cx9. The reasons were simple.
Mazda was taking $80 to fill every week. This only take $25 with Premium 98. & our usage is the same. We input our double pram in it easily with all kids and we both parents.
Parts are cheaper to buy. I would recommend to shop online for consumable items like, oil filter, air filter etc as it would definitely be cheaper. For Oil..go to any retail, for major parts, ONLY TOYOTA.
Plenty of DIY videos available to look after this on youtube.
No ...its NOT fun to drive, like my Mazda Cx9 but from safety and commute...Prius V highly recommended.
