Toyota is extending their hybrid lineup – having already been presented in USA the Prius v hatchback has taken a new life as a roomy estate car.

Who is the Prius v aimed at? The Japanese claimed that the car would be useful for current families with kids. The world has already got family cars – casual minivans and estate cars – but now Toyota adds a hybrid power-plant and king-size boot to that (two times bigger than the usual Prius has).

The Prius v has the same platform, the space inside has been enlarged due to a bigger wheelbase and a rear overhang. The new car has the same style as its elder, however, having no common body panels – the Prius v has become bigger in all dimensions.

The power-plant hasn’t changed – the electric motor still works with four-cylinder one (1.8 l, 98 hp), making together 134 hp.
