On the outside, the 2015 Prius v gets three new color options: Attitude Black metallic, Absolutely Red and Toasted Walnut Pearl.

New interior options include an upgraded Entune audio system; a power, 8-way driver's seat with lumbar adjust; a 4.2-inch TFT screen (standard on the "Three" trim and higher); and an upgraded Advanced Technology Package)The Prius v utilizes the same Hybrid Synergy Drive system as the standard Prius, delivering a net system output of 134hp from an 80hp, Atkinson-cycle gas engine and an 80hp (60kW) electric motor. In the Prius v, this powertrain is good for 44 miles per gallon in the city and 40 on the highway, for an EPA-certified 42 mpg overall. The Prius v's 3.1-inch longer wheelbase and 5.9-inch longer body give the hatchback increased utility over the standard Prius, giving it enough interior volume to be classified as a midsize by the EPA.Check back for live images of the 2015 Prius v after it is officially revealed on the floor.
