Editor's Overview

The 2016 Toyota Prius V might be the most righteously practical and rational automotive purchase you can make. There’s no room for frivolity here. With its enviro-friendly hybrid powertrain, stingy fuel consumption, interior space rivaling many compact SUVs and Toyota reputation for reliability, this is the thoroughly sensible choice for the thoroughly sensible buyer.

Cute, not expensive, great mileage Prius.

Our Prius basically has no problems, my husband is good getting the best mileage when driving in the highway, not so much in the city. A little squeaky brakes when raining, it is noisy since the floor is near to the road and there is not much of luxury in it, very economically dressed. But ours has a sunroof and good enough features like electric windows, child proof doors, etc.

Good mpg, comfortable, and reliable.

The Prius is a very comfortable driving experience. It has very high gas mileage, only needing to be refueled occasionally. It has enough features to be modern without being overwhelming and the interior is very pleasant to drive in. I drive it regularly and it always provides a relaxing and reassuring driving experience.

- Quinlan M

The storage space in the hatchback/trunk space is my favorite feature.

It is a hybrid, extremely quiet, roomy enough for 5 adults and quite a bit of storage in the back. I drive mostly in the suburban areas. I get great mileage and benefit from the hybrid engine, I average about 48 miles per gallon of gas typically, increasing up to 54 on highway driving while using cruise control.
