The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Toyota Prius V is the largest Prius model offered, though it's now also one of the oldest. There's a Golf for nearly every taste and need—Golf, Golf GTI, Golf SportWagen— and don't forget about the EV eGolf, which is very balanced and fun to drive.
