2012 Toyota Prius V first drive (photos)

In Toyota's efforts to expand its Prius model into a new hybrid line-up, it is launching the Prius V, with increased interior space. The Prius V uses the same hybrid system and engine as the Prius hatchback, but it is tuned for more torque to move the heavier vehicle. The extra size means mileage suffers a bit, but the Prius V still outshines the competition.
