Overview of 2012 Toyota Prius V Three By Eric Tallberg
Don’t let the “V” in Toyota’s brand-new 2012 Prius V Three be confused with the Roman numeral. It instead indicates the versatility inherent in this debuting midsize hybrid wagon, which comes in the form of some added dimensions offering 67.3 cubic feet of total cargo space, roomier passenger accommodations for 5 and economical gas/electric power from a more compact hybrid drivetrain.
Adorning the profile of this midlevel hybrid wagon are 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and heated power-adjustable mirrors. Inside, look for cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, a fold-down front passenger seat, reclining and sliding split-folding second-row seats and simulated alloy cabin accents. Full power accessories, cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering are embraced by manually adjustable climate control, with a trip computer complemented by a hybrid performance display. Meanwhile, a rear-view camera and Bluetooth hands-free technology are bolstered by standard navigation and Entune multimedia technology with Smartphone apps that include Bing search, Pandora and iHeart radio. Finally, a single-CD player boasts 6 speakers, satellite radio, an auxiliary iPod interface and a USB port.
Options for this midsize hybrid wagon include the Preferred Accessories Package with floor mats and cargo organizers, as well as the VIP Plus security system and remote engine start.
Powering the 2012 Prius V Three is a variable-valve-timed 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine that mates with a pair of electric motors for 134 hp and 153 lb-ft of torque. Managed by the traditional continuously variable transmission (CVT) this combo is estimated at 44 mpg city/40 highway, helped by auto engine stop/start and a trio of driver-selectable power modes. Choosing the Pwr mode results in quicker throttle response and a sportier drive, while the Eco mode adjusts the throttle for more economical cruising, and the EV (electric only) mode allows acceleration up to 25 mph for short distances. Of course, regenerative braking helps the four-banger to charge the 650 volt nickel-metal hydride battery, while a beefier rear axle ratio allows added torque while maintaining the regular Prius's engine size.
Finally, Toyota’s Star Safety System includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, driver’s knee airbag, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection.
This overview covers the Three trim only.
