Re: CleanMPG Previews the 2012 Prius v
Cargo cap is 12.7cf bigger than the regular Prius (whose official figure includes a substantial amount of underfloor storage). Put into perspective: 12.7cf is the size of a typical compact car's entire trunk. It's not just "slightly bigger," it's a whole trunk bigger.
34cf puts it smack dab in the middle of the compact SUV class. If they don't overprice it and gas stays expensive, the Prius V could eat a LOT of CUV sales. Including a lot of folks downsizing from minivans and larger SUVs that simply cannot go any smaller than this.
