The Prius v, everything but power seats.

The Prius v is a reliable, efficient vehicle perfect for quick errands or long road trips. The Prius v seats are easy to get in and out of and the floor board is low and spacious enough for people and pets with limited mobility. Switching from a vehicle getting 15 mpg to the Prius v getting 45+ mpg was the best choice for a budget conscious family. The Prius v has the great fit and finish you'd expect by Toyota. If I had to come up with a complaint, the Prius v has almost every tech feature wanted in a new car except power seats. The seats in the Prius v are heated and have lumbar support but have manual adjustment bar to move it. Strange option not to have. Overall the Prius v is a dependable, efficient vehicle.

Prius V's have a lot of room to move in and still get wonderful gas mileage.

I love that my car gets great gas mileage but is not cramped on space. I have a large back-seat area that I can fold chairs over in. That gives me confidence and security because I like that I have the option to pack my important belongings in my car and drive away. I do not like that my car is so low to the floor and this makes it hard to see past taller vehicles when approaching an intersection/stoplight. Also, there is a terrible blind spot in the front of my car where the side view mirror attaches to the vehicle. This makes some tight turns a bit frightening.

The Toyota Prius V is the Best Hybrid Family Car

I love the gas mileage especially about town. If I have friends or family with me and stop to visit someone else, I can leave the car running to keep the cabin cool or warm for my passengers while I visit without using a lot of fuel. I also like the look of my car. A hatchback was not my first choice, but it does come in handy when hauling stuff. It is a 5 passenger, but not the 5 people in my family.( all three of my boys are over 6'2") I also love that the seats in my car don't sit as low as normal cars of Its size, giving everybody more leg room.
