The Prius v is equipped with three driving modes - EV, ECO and POWER. These modes allow for drivers to adjust their vehicle’s performance depending on the current situation to maximize efficiency, use less power and increase acceleration.
As certain technologies increase and become more popular, drivers start to expect them as standard features. Toyota agrees, which is why all 2017 Prius v models are set standard with a integrated backup camera displayed on a 6.1-inch touch-screen.
One of the main reasons the Prius v is so appealing is because it offers a fuel economy better than most other family-friendly vehicles on the market. In the city, drivers will get 43 mpg, and they’ll get 39 mpg on the highway. This kind of efficiency is hard to beat.
From an outsider’s point-of-view, the 2017 Toyota Prius v looks rather similar to the previous year’s model. There were no major changes or redesigns to the vehicle’s overall appearance. However, the 2017 Prius v model does have a new colorway option for the exterior. If drivers are feeling adventurous, the Galactic Aqua Mica exterior colorway is sure to give them a luxurious feel.
Another change for this year’s Toyota Prius v is the multimedia capabilities. All models of the 2017 Prius v lineup have received an upgraded Entune Audio system with advanced voice recognition as well as Siri Eyes Free. Premium JBL Audio with integrated navigation and an app suite are available on higher models. The Entune App Suite allows drivers to have their favorite apps right at their fingertips. Whether you’re looking to make dinner reservations or play your favorite song, it’s all available on the touch-screen display.
The 2017 Toyota Prius v puts safety as its number one top priority. Last year, the 2016 Toyota Prius v received a TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with automatic front braking. Those are the models set with the available Advanced Technology Package, which includes the following safety assistive features:
If you’re in the market for a new family vehicle, then the 2017 Toyota Prius v would be the perfect fit for you. It’s not only equipped with all the latest safety features, but plenty of comfort and convenience features are available as well.
