Given the confirmation that USA will not see a 2018 Prius v, I am considering my upgrade options. I currently own a 2012 Prius v Two and 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid. I was planning to replace the Civic with another Prius v in a few years. Maybe I should pick up a new 2017 v now just the way I like it while it's still being produced. Maybe I should wait and buy one from Canada in 2020 when the new next gen platform based prius alpha is released there--I'm not sure how easy it is for me to buy a car in Canada and bring it to USA. Maybe I will wait for the new magical 2019 Rav4 Hybrid that will supposedly have decent MPG. Maybe I will wait for the new Subaru Hybrid--whenever that comes out. Maybe I wait and grab a used 2017 v. Maybe I just wait for an unknown future.
