Finally, there is a bigger, roomier Prius that accommodates families and all their belongings, and it's called the Prius V. But what is the Prius V exactly? It's considerably bigger than a sedan, smaller than an SUV and sportier than a minivan. The answer may surprise you Ð the 2016 Prius V is a letter-day station wagon! It has the ground clearance and agility of a sport-tuned car, and of course the legendary eco-sensitive hybrid system that thumbs its nose at gas stations.

The world has been waiting patiently for a family-size Prius ever since it first hit the market 20 years ago. Now it's here, and it's more spectacular than anyone imagined. Starting with limousine-quality plush seats that slide every which way, the Prius V is as inviting as vehicle interiors get. Are you ready to be blown away by the Prius V?

The roomy Prius V gives you a jaw-dropping EPA-estimated 42 mpg combined rating, far better than any other family-hauler we know of. You can do your part to make the Prius V even more fuel-efficient by choosing the driving mode wisely: ECO mode is the default setting that combines electric and gas power in a synergistic reaction; EV or Electric vehicle Mode lets you switch over to battery-only power for up to a mile at a time; and SPORT mode provides a boost of internal combustion action that will remind you of bygone muscle cars. You may find yourself reaching for the SPORT mode button every time your favorite Southern rock anthem comes on Pandora. More power to you!
Technically speaking, the 2016 Prius V is an MPV, or Multiple Purpose Vehicle Ð but we know a station wagon when we see one. Whatever happened to the station wagon, once the darling of American family life? It morphed into the minivan, and here's why: Back in the 1930s, trains were the a very elegant way to travel, and the elongated sedan built to transport people and their suitcases to the train station delighted Americans.(Hence the name ÒstationÓ wagon.) It evoked feelings of adventure, and signaled the beginning or end of an exciting trip. In the 1980s, the same thing happened with air travel. People loved the luxurious minivans that shuttled them to and from the airport, and the era of luxury SUVs began. Today, the Prius V has all the advantages of the station wagon and none of its drawbacks.
