The Toyota Prius v is one of the newer additions to the Prius family, expanding a lineup of gas-electric hybrid vehicles that has set the standard for environmentally-friendly transportation. This front-wheel drive, five-door liftback delivers comfort, excellent fuel economy and low emissions, as well as additional cargo space for today's active families. The Prius v is available in four trim levels - Prius v Two, Prius v Three, Prius v Four and Prius v Five. All trim levels employ Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive, a hybrid powertrain technology that unites a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine with a powerful electric drive motor to generate 134 combined horsepower. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard, and three selectable drive modes provide more power without compromising fuel efficiency. The Prius v Two is equipped with 16-inch aluminum wheels, passive entry/start, automatic climate control, Bluetooth wireless phone connectivity/audio streaming, a 6.1-inch touchscreen display and a USB port. Additional trim-dependent features include: 17-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights, fog lights, heated front seats, eco-friendly SofTex upholstery, satellite/HD radio, smartphone integration and a voice-activated navigation system. Standard safety technologies include anti-lock brakes with brake assist, vehicle stability/traction control, an integrated backup camera and a Vehicle Proximity Notification System, as well as seven airbags. An optional Advanced Technology Package offers a pre-collision system, radar cruise control, intelligent parking assist and a Safety Connect system, along with an innovative panoramic roof made of lightweight resin. Hybrid-related components are backed by an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty. The Prius v is redesigned for 2015, with fresh styling and upgraded interior materials, as well as enhanced standard and optional features. Additionally, a new Prius v Four trim is added to the lineup, and LED headlights are now available.
