2012 Toyota Prius V Station Wagon: First Drive Review

2012 Toyota Prius V Station Wagon: First Drive Review

@JKD: I will probably sound like a broken record to Briggs (and a not particularly harmonious one), but that huge impact on MPG doesn't translate to a huge number of *gallons saved* -- it's 3.8 gallons every 1,000 miles. That's noticeable, certainly, and not to be sneezed at, but relatively minor in the grand scheme of things compared to the national average, which is somewhere around 20 mpg. That's less than half as efficient as a Prius. And, frankly, there will be (we think) a lot of buyers who prefer the extra cargo capacity of a Prius wagon over the hatchback. We'll see where the sales numbers are a year hence (if Toyota breaks them out, which they may not).
