    My dealer says Toyota will make a 2014 Prius Persona, but doesn't have any allocation yet. Does anyone out there know if this is true, and if so when will it be released?

    I saw your post, thanks. No, it's not on Toyota's site but I spoke to the dealer today and he said he'd been told it will be made in 14. Was hoping someone "in the know" would be able to answer for sure. If it's going to be made, and depending on when it will be available, it could affect my buying decision.

    Nothing on the 14' liftback models has been put out by Toyota at this point.

    I am working with a dealer on a 2013 Blizzard Pearl Persona (new) for $23,881. Sounds like a good price, right?!?! My local dealer is asking $27,000. Big difference...but yes, there appears to be a few Persona's out there still.

    I was told by the dealer selling the $23k Persona that it is not equiped with navigation, power seats, auto on/off headlights. Is that true for you guys?

    That price sounds unreal..

    In regards to options on Persona, navi is standard as well as auto on/off headlamps. You cannot get power seats. Typo in their catalog. I was disappointed.

    She told me it has the normal screen with entunre but NO NAVIGATION but it does have a backup camera. Strange...Here is what features this Persona has on it per the sales persons email...

    "With th Persona you have Projector beam halogen headlights with auto-off feture, daytime running lights, LED tail lights and stop lights, rear dome lights and crago area light. About the power seats, the driver has power seat only." "The Persona does come with back up camara. It is a standard feature."

    I could be wrong but I think all the Persona's come with the entune with navi. That's just part of the package. There is no power seat in this model.

    Best way is to see for yourself. On the 2013 Persona, none of the things I noted were options. It comes standard. Do they not have one you can see in the showroom?

    My comment about the seat, I know well based on the brochure. I was excited that it noted it was power seat but when I went to see the car, it's manual. Perhaps it's changed for 2014?

    Just re-read your previous post, 2013.. so it will have Navi and no power seat. It will be just like mine and rest of the Persona's..

    Copy that. I'm going to take a look. But the $23k price seems good, right?

    I was on the 210 fwy today going through Pasadena and a Black Cherry Persona like mine was right behind me with paper plates and as she went past I was giving a v sign but she didn't even look over! This color is pretty scarce. I see very few others so I was surprised that the other driver didn't look over.
