Toyota Prius v made its official debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The vehicle is a full hybrid MPV featuring Toyota's world-leading Hybrid Synergy to Drive.

Toyota Prius v boats a low, 0.29 coefficient of drag, which has been achieved without compromising its convenient packaging.

Outside, Prius v is sleek, rounded and bold with long roofline, which allows the car to retain the symbolic triangular silhouette. The headlamps have sharp edges and the lower air intake is enlarged to improve the aerodynamics and cooling.

The interior is going to satisfy even the most demanding customers. It boats high seating position, nice headroom and an impressive 965mm couple distance that delivers good legroom for rear seat passengers.

The most staggering thing is the cargo space behind the rear seats - 970 litres, which is more than in some compact SUV models.

The second row seats have slide adjustment and can be reclined through 45 degrees. It also has 60:40 split-folding function, which adds a lot of flexibility.

Toyota Prius v can be ordered with resin panoramic sunroof that marks an 18 Kg weight saving compared to glass roofs of the same size.

There are four driving modes - Normal, Power, Eco and EV. Prius v also has a push button start and e-CVT electronic gear shift.

"Prius v is an all-new dedicated hybrid vehicle, and all future Prius family members will be as well. They will share common Prius attributes, but will be unique, with a special appeal to different buyers.", commented Bob Carter, Toyota Division Group Vice President and General Manager.
