    While driving home from work today, I saw a Prius v on the highway, driving right along with traffic. So, if you've had your name near the top of the waiting list at your local Southern California Toyota dealer, your phone might start ringing very soon.

    :cool:

    PS. for those of you that think the "v" should be capitalized, you might want to take a look at this: MY12 Toyota Prius v

    The thing that is so cool is the Prius v is a really good looking car. It is by far the best looking wagon I have ever laid eyes on.

    +1. It's a really stylish vehicle and moreso for a wagon. They managed to get the cargo carrying capacity without making a box.

    I have to admit...it looks good.

    I'm going to have to go see one this weekend. I just hate walking into a dealership, without Garlic and a Crucifix.

    I've seen 4 of them in the Sacramento area in the past week. They look nice in person and are hard to distinguish from a regular Prius liftback unless you get a rear or full on side view. I'm just happy to see people already buying them.

    It's funny, but a non-Prius Toyota-owning friend who thinks the regular Prius is ugly thinks the v is even uglier.
