- fuel economy we get 41.5 mpg combined.
-very peppy especially in power mode.
-lots of space of an SUV.
- radio controls a little confusing.
- key fob doesn't always recognize and car won't say READY so we need to restart the sequence.
- It's comfortable but a little tight. If we have a third person in the back seat they are a little squeezed.
Love the roomy interior and great mileage.

It doesn't feel like a small compact, it's roomy inside, a solid ride and it gets wonderful mileage. We also appreciate the cargo space, for hauling a number of things.
Perfect road trip car
2012 Toyota Prius vMatt J - Austin, TX05/12/2016
If you're buying a Prius, you know you're sacrificing engine size and power for gas mileage. That said, the Prius V, with the tech package, is a great road trip car. The adaptive cruise control means that you can set the cruise control for 75 mph and not have to disengage/re-engage cruise control if vehicles ahead of you change speed. If you're going cross-country, the car can warn you of bad weather in the area. It handles really well on slick roads because of front-wheel drive. The one downside is that the built-in GPS is of fairly poor quality, but for longer trips, I use a stand-alone Garmin.
