Prius v is rated as a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV), a designation indicating it produces considerably fewer smog-forming emissions than an average gasoline-powered vehicle.
Thanks to its sleek, aerodynamic design, Prius v always takes the path of least air resistance. With its familiar triangular silhouette allowing for a cabin shape designed and optimized for airflow, Prius v effortlessly slices the air while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and increasing overall efficiency.
Some conditions require more power to navigate. During heavy acceleration, the Prius v gasoline engine is used while the battery supplies increased drive power to the electric motor.
For over 15 years, Toyota has been a world leader in the development of eco-sensitive technology with our advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive® system. This tried-and-tested system continues to be efficient, reliable and more popular with each passing year. Which means you can drive it with more confidence.
Prius v’s available Single LED (light-emitting diode) projector low- and high-beam headlights with auto on/off and an LED accent light produce a clean white light, offer extremely long life and require 20 to 30 percent less energy than traditional headlights.
Prius v offers you two windows to the world above with its available Panoramic View Moonroof. It features power shades that operate simultaneously and give every occupant an uplifting perspective.
Convenient tech that helps you get to the fun more quickly. With the Smart Key fob comfortably stashed in your pocket or purse, you can unlock the doors of Prius v when you touch the driver’s door handle. And once inside, the engine starts with the simple push of a button.
The energy monitor screen indicates the operation of the hybrid system in real time. Hybrid Synergy Drive® employs the most efficient source of power possible.
The integrated navigation system in Prius v uses the high-resolution 6.1-in. touch-screen display to give you turn-by-turn directions, HD predictive traffic, and even a Doppler weather overlay.
Available Entune® App Suite brings a variety of popular mobile apps directly to your Prius v. OpenTable® is ready to help you make a dinner reservation, and Pandora® keeps your playlist loaded with the music you love. And that’s just the start: With Facebook Places, Yelp®, iHeartRadio, Destination Search and more apps, you’ll never miss out.
Prius v offers added comfort for those chilly nights. With the press of a button, you can add warmth to any trip with available SofTex®-trimmed heated front seats.
With rear seats that recline and slide forward and backward for maximum leg room, comfort is a given. And thanks to plush upholstery and generous rear-seat leg room, back-seat passengers will feel like they’re traveling in first-class comfort.
It’s not always easy to manually keep a consistent distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you. With this available radar system, Prius v automatically adjusts its speed to help maintain a preset following distance between you and the car traveling directly in front of you.
When collisions happen, there’s rarely time to get ready for them. An available Pre-Collision System (PCS) on Prius v uses radar to help determine if a frontal collision is unavoidable, and automatically applies the brakes and retracts the front seatbelts to help prepare for it.
Prius v helps make nighttime driving easier for all drivers on the road. Its available Auto High Beam (AHB) system helps detect vehicles and, depending on the circumstances, automatically switches the high beams on and off.
Via Toyota’s 24/7 call center, available Safety Connect® offers subscribers helpful features such as Emergency Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Locator, Roadside Assistance and Automatic Collision Notification.
