Amazing Efficiency And Quietness — We love the Entune paired up with our iPhones. Everything we want is available right on the car's navigation screen; Movies, Fuel Prices, Contact List, Pandora, Traffic alerts, and it is intuitive to learn. Sirius radio and HD stations make beautiful clear sound. Fuel efficiency - our first tank around town yielded 47.9 mpg, and a trip to Miami at 68-70 mph resulted in 41.4 mpg, both better than the EPA ratings. (We are pretty gentle with the accelerator, but we do drive the speed limits.) in the past 4 months of driving, we improved on those numbers considerably. You have to check out this car before buying anything else.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Top quality, built for low wind resistance and noise giving it a sleek appearance. And the gas mileage - unbelievable for a car with this much room for people and luggage. We consistently get 50-52 in town and 47-48 on the highway.

Cons: Not much extra power on the Interstate for passing at 70 mph, just adequate. But power was not one of the priorities in our selection of  a new car.

Would be great for my windsurfing hobby and DJ business. Love the gas mileage. My negative is that it is boring to drive - felt like a van (an old mans car): not very exciting. Handling not very precise.

2013 Toyota Prius v Two FWD Review
Eric says:
Its a Prius, which means youll have one of the most reliable, cheapest cost to own cars on the road next to a full EV. The car gets phenomenal gas mileage for a car its size. Which its rated 44 city/40 highway. However, if you are an experienced Prius owner and know the technique of driving any hybrid to maximize your mpg, its easily to go over the rating. From my own personal experience, I get around 44-47 mpg throughout the winter and during the warmer months, I easily get 46-55 mpg, which is all hand calculated. My best record was 70.1 mpg for a 14 mile trip. The car gives you an estimate of 475 on a full tank, but driving conditions/habits will change that and will adjust before each drive. Compared to the Scion XB, between the weight of the engine and the hybrid battery being close to the rear wheel wheels, the car has a decent amount of weight and Ive yet to get stuck in the snow and the Prius V has a higher ground clearance. When you compare the size of the car, its larger than 80% of the small SUVs on the market; RAV4, CRV are its best comparisons for interior room. The cargo area is massive. I managed to haul a 50 gallon, 5ft tall water heater with no issue and still had about a foot of space left. The car is a great family hauler and even if you drive alone a lot for your work commutes (which I do) I learn to appreciate the added extra space the car offers. The car feels big when your driving and feels pretty solid when youre driving next to other wagons and SUVs of its size. Ive driven the regular 3rd Gen Prius before and the one major buying factor for me when I decided when purchasing the Prius V over the regular Prius was its interior space, no floating bridge in the center console that the regular Prius has. The Prius V has an open rear window where as the 3rd gen Prius has the split window, so its easier to see out the window. Also, the rear passenger area has ample room, the rear seats recline, there is a charging outlet in the cargo area, so rear passengers can charge their phones if they bring a long enough cord. The entire car itself has a ton of cup holders as well. Road trips are very comfortable. Ive own the car for nearly 3 years now and Ive been on two long road trips, which were 1,300 miles each. Total cost in fuel was around $35 between one fill up and one partial fill up. The negatives about the car, as even with the driver seat manually adjusted to go up where my legs are elevated and still have head room, from my own personal preference, I wish the driver seat was similar to the Scion XB. Compared to the XB, the XB is alot easier to get in and out of. At 134,000 miles, Ive yet to have any major issues. Just oil changes, new tires/rotation, scheduled maintenance, recently got new brakes, rotors and rear calipers. I did have the EGR system, intake manifold, throttle body cleaned, replaced the PVC and added an oil catch can. The 3rd gen Prius, which the Prius V are both mechanically the same, just the Prius Vs drive ratio is higher and adjusted to account for the extra weight. These model years for the 3rd gens are known to have clogged EGR issues with high miles, which eventually cause engine knocking and blown head gaskets. I didnt experience either, but I did the work anyways and the EGR system was around 10% blocked. Its not an easy job to do and its very time consuming. Most dealers wont do it, theyll either charge you thousands of dollars or deny completely that its an issue. Most local shops wont touch anything thats hybrid related out of inexperience. Best way to have the work done is either do it yourself or find a trusted mechanic or hybrid shop. With all that given, I still love the car. Its still a dream to drive and Im constantly playing the MPG game, like with a video game, you try to beat your previous score, Im always trying to beat my previous MPG record.

Front Seats Ranked 2008 Scion xB 5-Door better.
"The seating is more elevated and more SUV like for the Scion. Where as with the Prius V, the seating is comfortable, but not elevated enough for my preference and sometimes, my legs get numb after long drives. "
Would Buy Ranked 2008 Scion xB 5-Door worse.
"The Prius is the most reliable car on the market and cheapest for cost to own. These cars are known to go past 200,000 miles without major issues. At 134,000 miles, Ive yet to experience a major issue. Also, comparing MPG, you cant beat the Prius. However, the Scion XB is alot more fun to drive."

"The IM looks days better than the Prius. The Prius is rather boring to drive and boring looking in my opinion. Along with the interior materials, the IM looks like a Lexus on the inside where the Prius looks more hard plastic material."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Scion iM worse.
"The Prius does have more cargo and passenger room that the IM"
