If you are one of the many Louisiana drivers who love the Toyota Prius, then you should consider its sibling, the 2017 Prius v. This particular model has all the fuel economy of the Prius but with more interior space and versatility, making it perfect for families. Between its efficiency and usefulness, families will truly appreciate what the Toyota Prius v brings to the table.
Save on Fuel with the 2017 Toyota Prius v
No matter how far from home you drive, you will be able to save money on fuel thanks to the 2017 Toyota Prius v. This hybrid gets 43 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway for 41 mpg combined*. You won’t find these figures on any vehicle with a conventional powertrain and as much interior space as the Prius v.
Prius v Interior Versatility and Room
The Toyota Prius v is actually as versatile as an SUV despite its hatchback design. The rear-seat legroom is average for midsize sedans, but this model is much more versatile than sedans. The second row actually slides back and forth so you can maximize cargo space or passenger room. You can even recline the rear seatbacks as much as 45 degrees.
Even if you have your family filling up every seat in the Prius v, you will have 34.3 cubic feet of cargo room. Slide the rear seats forward and enjoy 40.2 cubes. Fold down the rear seats to get 67.3 cubic feet. Since the rear seats also split 60/40, you can find a balance between these figures, as well.
Extra Storage Throughout the Prius v
Toyota understands how many things parents need to keep in hand, which is why there are so many extra storage compartments in the Prius v. You will notice dual glove boxes along with specific spaces under and along the sides of the cargo floor to hide personal electronics. Under the rear seats, you will find a special umbrella-storage compartment.
Factor in the top safety features and the latest entertainment, and the 2017 Toyota Prius v makes perfect sense for Kenner, Louisiana, families who are eco-conscious. Visit Ray Brandt Toyota to take this model for a test drive.
