If you’re looking for a car that’s sporty and fun, then you probably want a car that lets you bring your friends along for a great time too.  The 2016 Prius v in Kansas City, MO, can comfortably seat five passengers and can accommodate all of their gear.  With the hatch-style door, you can all easily access the available 34.3 cu. ft. of cargo space.  You’ll also find lots of versatility in the interior, which can be customized with a wide variety of seating and cargo configurations.  There are also several smaller storage compartments that can securely store smaller items, like mobile devices, flashlights, or a first aid kit. 

When it comes to the competition, one of the first ways you’ll notice the difference of the Prius v is its iconic style.  While vehicles like the 2015 Honda Fit and the 2015 Ford C-Max both also sport a hatchback, they don’t match the Prius v’s sense of smart, sleek, and aerodynamic style.  The 2016 Toyota Prius v’s iconic triangular silhouette is ideal for promoting airflow, and its bold profile lines create a sleek look that stands out in the crowd.  As an added detail of style and function, the Prius V offers LED projector headlights produce clear white light with a smart angled design, while the Honda Fit only offers halogen headlights.  Plus, the 2016 Toyota Prius v’s headlights have an extremely long life and require 20-30% less energy than traditional headlights.
