"2012 Toyota Prius v has reason to be smug," this quote from Detroit News surely has a point - for once the "S" word is not an insult, but instead, a compliment to the line of Prius models, and the new "Prius Family."1
There's a new line of hybrid cars coming to West Herr Toyota Scion of Williamsville, located at 8129 Main Street, Williamsville NY - which includes the larger model Toyota Prius v.
The Japanese auto maker plans on intruding new models, including the original, a compact, van size (MPV), and others to the eco-friendly public.
This Prius model is bigger than the ten year old sedan. But the reason you drive one has nothing to do with size does it? With a range of well over 500 miles on a single charge, Prius v has been officially rated at 44 mpg city, 40 mpg highway. That's why.
Prius V sits on a slightly larger platform, seating 5 with room to spare. With all that extra room, you will need a bit more power. This comes from the Eighty horsepower gas powerplant, with the help of two electric motors, bringing it up to 134 horses and 153 pound-feet of torque. While it may not fly through stop signs and traffic lights, the roomier, five door hybrid is larger than the competitions' crossover models.
The Prius v can be yours today, starting at $27,160 before tax incentives.
