2015 Toyota Prius V Review, Specs, Prices

The 2015 Toyota Prius V is both the most spacious and largest vehicle which has been made by Toyota. The hybrid is definitely a family oriented type of a tall wagon. And, in addition, one can buy this stunning car at more than affordable price. Although, it has its sibling, with which shares the same powertrain option, but the main difference between these two lovable cars is that Prius V comes along with much roomier main cabin and has, a bit, more family-friendly shape than its sibling – Prius C.

Exterior and Interior Design

If you are one of the true and devoted car lovers (as we are), you are, the most probably, familiar with the fact that letter “V” stands for the word “Versatility”. Knowing that, it shouldn’t surprise us at all, the fact that this five-passenger compact hybrid comes in five different trims: the Two, Three, Four and Five. But, regardless of an exact trim, all of them share the main interior, as well as the similar exterior design.


As for the interior of the 2015 Toyota Prius V, the cabin in its main focus puts user friendliness, above all else. There are numerous examples that could be found almost everywhere in the cabin. Starting from the controls, which are pretty big, very notable and a properly labeled, as well. As an addition, the shift lever is placed that any driver could easily reach. They are located high on the center stack, which is the nearest to the steering wheel. While the main cabin’s functionality is considered to be one of the highest among the whole class of these kind of the vehicles, its design isn’t especially attractive. Coupled with the hatchback, the Prius V’s main cabin is considered to be less attractive, rather boring, compared to the other cabins from the car’s main competitors.


When we take into our consideration the general interior design, the thing which we can very first spotted is the split-folding rear seat, which is able to recline and slides fore and after. It is intended to allow for you to choose from either more legroom or, somehow, an expansive cargo capacity or anything in between. These brand new model has suffered some minor refreshments and upgrades, exterior wise, this very year. As a result of all these updates, the overall appearance is slightly more aggressive and includes also brand new head- and taillight units.

When it comes to the wide range of the hi-tech features of the 2015 Toyota Prius V, certainly, the most vital ones are: a brand new Entune multimedia system, keyless entry, a rearview camera, climate controls that are located on the steering wheel, Bluetooth, audio, an outstanding navigation system with voice control that displays on the 6.1-inch central touch screen and many others are available, depending on the exact trim level.
