When you’re in the market for a new hybrid, there’s nowhere better to turn than Toyota and its highly acclaimed Prius. However, Toyota engineers have taken it a step further with the Prius v. With this hatchback hybrid, you’ll still be able to enjoy the efficiency you’ve come to know and love from the Prius, but with a little more room inside. Stop by Lewis Toyota to see why the 2017 Toyota Prius v for sale in Topeka, KS, has everyone talking.
Underneath the hood, you’ll find the standard 1.8L 16-valve VVT-i powertrain, along with the AC synchronous motor. With a net horsepower of 134, every ride in the Prius v will not only be efficient, but also exciting. For smooth gear shifts, the Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) comes standard. Thanks to the independent MacPherson strut front suspension, the torsion beam rear suspension, and Electric Power Steering, the Prius v offers an agile, seamless cruise every time you slide behind the wheel.
From the outside in, the Prius v boasts several aspects that contribute to its impeccable efficiency. Its triangular silhouette not only provides an eye-catching design, it also lets the Prius v effortlessly glide through the air, helping reduce overall fuel consumption. During heavy acceleration situations, the gasoline engine is used, while the battery supplies increased drive power to the electric motor. Similarly, when you’re riding along at low speeds, the Prius v is powered solely by the high-torque electric motor. With all of these counterparts working together, its fuel economy of 43/49 MPG city/hwy1 comes as no surprise.
A great aspect of the 2017 Toyota Prius v for sale in Topeka, KS, is that it’s able to keep you informed every step of the way via the Hybrid System Indicator display screen on the dashboard.

For further assistance, the Prius v can even provide you with an ECO Score that rates how efficiently you’re driving in three different categories: starting, cruising, and stopping; a score of up to 100 will then be presented to you.
