    Which would you get?? both in great condition... both same price, but one is 2013 plug in advanced and other is regular 2015 prius . same millage, about 56,000. Which would you get? Is the plug in worth it? is the fancy interior with navigation, leather electric, seats, etc, of the advanced worth it? I live in Los Angeles. Opinions appreciated!

    Check if it has a green carpool lane sticker. If it has it, might be wrth it. And if you drive a lot, you'll get slightly better efficiency. Year usually doesn't matter if it's 2 years, but check carcomplaints.com. suggests 2013 is worst year for plug-in, but on an absolute scale it might be ok.

    if i was doing it...i would go with the 2015 prius..and then wait for the plug in technology to get better...which it slowly is...just my 2 cents plus tax worth

    welcome!
    the plug in advanced is a great car. if you have the ability to plug in, i would go for it, driving ev is fabulous.
    if you can't, i'd get the 15, at least you'll have a spare tire.

    For the same price and miles? The plug in Advanced by a landslide. Even if you can't plug in. But if you can, then it's a hyper no-brainer. I'd even pick the Base model above a newer trim 2 hatchback.

    That's unless you absolutely must have a spare tire and don't want one strapped to the cargo deck.
