The rear seats in the 2012 Toyota Prius V slide, recline, fold flat, and, if you're willing to take a socket set to your car, are easily removed.  Taking out one or both seats really increases the cargo space.  I cut one of the plastic covers to make it even easier to remove the seats.

We're considering buying a Prius V and the ability to remove the rear seats is something we're having to think about.

When you remove these, are there any wires or sensors that are affected? I was worried that it would affect rear airbag sensors or something.

Well that's handy! I have the same model Prius, and didn't realize that it was so easy to remove the back seats. Thinking of all kinds of ideas for what to do with that extra space. Thanks for posting!

how do you like the new Prius V? I was really hoping that they would also have come out with the 7 seater like they did in Japan...
