Trim Details

Asked by Jan 19, 2018 at 06:55 PM about the Toyota Prius

Question type: General

On generation 3 Toyota Prius, please identify each trim level above base.  My understanding is that the Prius One is the base model.  What are the upgrades for Prius Two, Three and Four?  When they were new, how much more did you pay for that trim level as standard?  We are wanting leather seats and believe we need to look for Prius Four?

Gen 3 was 2010-2015 and came is 4 trim levels, Prius II, III, IV, V. The Prius IV and V came with leather seats as standard. If you want pricing from back then, I'm sure with some searching online you can find it. Not sure why you need pricing from 2010, if your looking for one now, the current prices are what you want to focus on.

The question about price was what did the manufacturer consider the relative upgrades worth? What did you get with each trim level upgrade? I'm just trying to establish a baseline of worth when it was new to value now. Used cars have so many variables I find them very hard to evaluate. Perhaps that is not the way to evaluate. We have a 2004 (we bought used in 2006 with low miles) now has 265K miles on it and has been great car. We are sold on the Prius but do not know what to avoid Gen 3. I heard to avoid 2010? Wanting leather is I've grown to hate the fabric seats. Any advice to the ignorant on buying a Gen 3, please advise. One more question - isn't the Prius V the longer car?


at the top of the page is the word 'research', you can then choose a car, enter the info to know more about specs and what other owners think. Good Luck on your future purchase.
