2016 Toyota Prius Buyer's Guide
The 2016 Toyota Prius v is part of the model lineup that’s widely credited for making hybrid cars a viable option for much of the car-buying public. The Prius v, which is a wagon that seats five passengers, was introduced in 2012 as part of a larger brand expansion to add versatility. It was treated to a mild exterior refresh and some equipment changes for the 2015 model year, but carries over mostly unchanged for 2016. The Prius helped the Toyota brand establish itself as an innovator and leader in hybrid vehicle technology. Since fuel prices have dropped in the last couple of years, Toyota’s taken a slight hit across the entire Prius lineup, and increased competition in the hybrid market has also affected sales.

What makes it move?
The 2016 Toyota Prius v wasn’t designed to offer the best performance on the market, but it instead prioritizes efficiency and accessibility. The front-wheel drive Prius v features a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine paired to an electric motor and continuously variable transmission, putting out 134 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. This drivetrain yields modest throttle response and speed, but the Prius v boasts EPA fuel economy ratings of 44 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.
Why buy the 2016 Toyota Prius?
The 2016 Toyota Prius v is ideal for a buyer who prioritizes fuel economy, accessibility and general efficiency above all else, because this car wasn’t designed for a stylish appearance or a sporty driving experience. That’s not to diminish the benefits of the Prius brand lineup, which lends its best attributes to the 2016 Prius v. The Prius v’s utilitarian interior has a mix of upscale and low-end materials, but offers plenty of storage and generous seating accommodations, with all the flexibility of a wagon. One drivetrain simplifies the Prius v buying process, and several trim levels help buyers browse the equipment and options. Fuel economy may be a bit lower than other Prius models, but it’s very good compared to other wagons on the market.
