2014 Toyota Prius v Summary

Changes for the 2014 Toyota Prius v:

Toyota adds standard daytime running lights and a reversing camera to all Prius v models, and now offers a panoramic sunroof as an option for the Prius v Three trim level. Previously, it was available only for the Prius v Five.

Model Lineup:

The 2014 Toyota Prius v is a gas-electric hybrid station wagon based on the same platform as a standard Prius. The heavier Prius v supplies up to 67.3 cu.-ft. of cargo capacity in exchange for a significant decline in fuel economy, and is sold in trim levels that are called Two, Three, and Five.

A navigation system and Entune App Suite technology are standard for the Prius v Three, while the Prius v Five adds LED headlights, fog lights, and larger 17-inch aluminum wheels. Additionally, the Prius v Five is equipped with SofTex leatherette seat upholstery and interior trim, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a universal garage door opener.

Engines and Transmissions:

Like the Prius upon which it is based, the 2014 Prius v is equipped with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, an electric assist motor, a nickel-metal hydride battery pack, a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and a regenerative braking system that recharges the battery as the car is driven. Standard, Eco, EV, and Power driving modes tailor the 134-horsepower powertrain to specific tastes and tasks.

Fuel Economy Ratings:

According to the EPA, the Toyota Prius v is expected to get 42 mpg in combined driving. This is down from the standard Prius model’s 50-mpg rating.

Safety Ratings:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2014 Prius v a 5-star overall crash-test rating, even though the car performs at a 4-star level in frontal-impact testing, in the side-impact pole test, and in terms of rollover resistance.

In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Prius v earns a “Good” rating in all assessments except for the small overlap frontal-impact test, for which the car rates “Poor.”

Technology Highlights:

A Vehicle Proximity Notification System operates under certain EV-mode driving conditions, emitting a warning sound to let pedestrians and cyclists know that an electric vehicle is operating nearby.

The Prius v Five model can be optioned with a Dynamic Radar Cruise Control system that includes a Pre-Collision System that can automatically brake the vehicle in order to reduce speed before an unavoidable collision. Safety Connect service, if active, includes Automatic Collision Notification, which automatically helps to speed rescuers to the scene of an accident.

Entune App Suite technology is standard for the Prius v Three and Five models, offering smartphone integration with the infotainment system and access to a wide variety of mobile applications and services right from the in-dash touchscreen. The Prius v Five can be optioned with a hard-disc navigation system, a JBL Greenedge premium sound system, and an Advanced Parking Guidance System that steers the vehicle into a parallel parking space while the driver operates the pedals and transmission.
