Prius v i-Tech® model shown

Summer is the ideal time of year to forge precious family memories – from cricket in the park and action-packed road trips, to relaxing beach days and backyard gatherings. It’s a season that strikes a balance – between hot days and balmy nights, work and play, and the duelling desires to sit back and relax or get up and go. Whichever direction you decide on, it helps to be able to transition easily between home and away, with a versatile hybrid vehicle like the Toyota Prius v.

Ahead of the pack
All the best adventures begin with a good plan. Discuss with the family where you’d like to go and what you’d like to do. If a long drive with kids is on the cards, it pays to be prepared with a well-packed car. The Prius v has room for seven and the seats can be rearranged in six configurations to accommodate everything from sports gear to picnic blankets and a cooler bag for drinks and snacks. For a more deluxe pit stop along the way, throw in some colourful tableware, rugs and cushions. During those long stretches on the road, the six-speaker sound system with a 6.1-inch touch-screen display including iPod® and Bluetooth® capabilities* will keep everyone entertained as they can take turns streaming their favourite tunes all the way there and back again.

Star power
On clear nights, take the kids on a magical tour to see the stars by escaping the bright city lights in the Prius v i-Tech® model, which comes with a panoramic roof. All Prius v cars can switch between being powered by electricity, petrol or a combination of both so whether your stargazing involves heading for the hills, just cruising along in a peaceful place, or really getting away from it all, the Toyota Prius v offers all the power and efficiency you need.
