    Well with out knowing anymore details, obviously the 2014 Five! I had a 2012 v five. Great car! The 2012-2014 are the same. Love the upgraded wheels and headlights on the five model.

    2015 Prius V has additional reinforcement to improve front offset crash testing. My son has a 2015 Prius v 5.

    I'll chime in that we picked up our 2014 Prius v 5 last week and are very pleased with it.

    My son is pleased with his 2015 Prius v 5. Toyota improved their front offset crash results in 2015.
