2017_Toyota_Prius_v_001

(TORONTO, ON –July 26, 2016) The votes are in – you get more Prius with the 2017 Toyota Prius v! Combining the efficiency and advanced technology of Toyota’s proven Hybrid Synergy Drive with tremendous versatility, the Prius v is the perfect hybrid crossover for Canadian families.

 

“Like every model in the Prius family, the Prius v is built around the world’s most popular and proven hybrid powertrain – delivering a winning combination of remarkable efficiency and emissions performance, plus driving fun, comfort, reliability and safety,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice-President, Toyota Canada Inc. “Find out what thousands of Canadian drivers already know: the Toyota Prius v delivers all the benefits of a crossover and more.”

 

Every 2017 Toyota Prius v offers generous comfort, convenience, technology and standard safety features. These include many features unique to hybrids – from the added power and efficiency of regenerative braking to four driver-selectable powertrain options (Normal, Power and ECO – plus Electric Vehicle operation for short distances) to suit any driving style and road/weather condition.

 

The Prius v’s striking body style is sleek, yet the interior offers surprising spaciousness – giving Canadians 40 percent more cargo space than the Prius liftback. Prius v drivers enjoy advanced acceleration, braking and ride comfort – plus impressive torque and power from its Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive built around a 1.8L four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine. This hybrid power train delivers 136 net system horsepower plus class-leading fuel efficiency of just 5.6L/100km city/highway combined.

 

The Prius v is offered in three model grades:
