 Pros While not fairing as well as its hatchback cousin, the Toyota Prius V will provide levels of fuel economy that no other large family sized station wagon can come close to

 Pros The Prius V earns positive reviews as a typical Hybrid powered quiet and comfortable vehicle combining roominess with generous cargo carrying capacity;

 Pros The interior console that was the butt of fairly negative reviews in the Prius hatchbacks has been replaced with a more traditional dashboard center stack.

 Cons The dashboard layout has been described as "confusing" in some reviews with an overly fussy cluster of gauges.

 Cons There have been some disparaging reviews regarding the Prius V 's slightly high of the ground and therefore awkward driving position.

 Cons Levels of disappointment have been expressed on the quality of the Prius V's interior materials.

 Cons When the rear seat slides all the way forward, small objects may fall into the trough created.

 Cons The rear seat-back releases are inconveniently placed at the sides of the seat, instead of a button right on top of the seat back itself.

 Cons Fuel economy levels on the 2011 Prius V wagon are very far away from that of the hatchback which after all is only 300 pounds or ten percent heavier, while fuel consumption is raised by fifteen percent.
