Best minivan or wagon - Toyota Prius V

Given that Consumer Reports named the Prius the best overall value, it shouldn't be too surprising that the Prius V topped the list in this category. It's basically a Prius with added cargo space. Fuel economy isn't as good as the regular Prius, but it still got 41 mpg in the magazine's testing.
