What Changed

The Prius v is a new model that combines the high-mileage hybrid powertrain of the Prius with a larger wagon body for additional utility. Compared to the Prius, the Prius v is longer by 6 inches, taller by 3.3 inches and wider by 1 inch. Like the Prius, the hybrid drive system contains a 1.8l four cylinder gas engine, an 80-hp electric motor and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack.
