The Prius v is an obvious choice for hybrid shoppers who want a wagon.

Introduction

To satisfy buyers who need more utility, Toyota introduced the Prius v -- a wagon -- in 2012. When compared to the hatchback model, the Prius v provides an additional 16 cubic feet of interior space, and 27.7 extra cubic feet of cargo room.

The 2013 Prius v carries over from 2012 with one slight change: the addition of a SofTex-wrapped steering wheel in its top trim level.

The 2013 Prius v comes in three trim levels -- Two, Three and Five -- and all feature the same hybrid drive system in which two electric motors assist a 1.8-liter gas engine. This drivetrain puts out a total of 138 horsepower and is mated to a fuel-saving continuously variable transmission. No one will mistake the Prius v for a sports car, but it holds its own with a 10.3-second 0-to-60 mph run.

Examine trim levels and you'll find that the Two includes an audio system, cloth seating and power amenities. The Three features an upgraded audio system with infotainment and navigation systems. The Five adds premium faux leather upholstery, larger wheels and a HomeLink garage door opener.

Option groups include the Technology Package, with extras like a premium hard-drive-based navigation system, a JBL audio system with a 7-inch screen, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Advanced Parking Guidance System, and a panoramic moonroof.
