    Compare to the 7-seat version where the Li-Ion takes up space

    ... leaving you with a shallow tray for a few discs and a considerably shallower front cargo tray. (You do get a small items holder ahead of the cupholder but the 5-seat version has that pocket you see under the radio anyway)

    Very cool. I'm also excited they're bringing back the Magnetic Gray color. :) Overall just very pleased that they're paying a little homage to the Gen II.

    Yep. They're taking the best of both worlds - The storage tray but no bridge and with the hidden drawer. It's taking the advantages of both designs.

    TO do you know if it's going to have the instantaneous MFD display? That was the best thing missing in Gen3.

    I forgot to cover the hidden drawer, but yes, it's back! And this time it has a removable cupholder in it. So that's a total of 3 cupholders in the front passenger compartment, and 2 in the back. And macmaster, you'll love this: they moved the rear cupholders back to being built into the back of the front center armrest.

    I love the hidden drawers (front and back).

    Nice. I never liked rear armrest cupholders unless they came with a cover (so that it would prevent cups/cans/bottles from tipping over under hard braking). The Camry's one was ok but I don't trust the 3G Prius' one. It may be flat but it looks like there's less height towards the front of the car. I love the 2G's Prius in the console. The Prius v looks like the one from a Corolla. It'll do I guess.
