    NO AWD! I am very disappointed that Toyota doesn't perceive the market in the US for AWD.

    Since its electric, the added weight probably kills the mpg, so that trumps AWD for NA. Or maybe they want to perfect it in Japan first? Here in WI, I think AWD would be a big selling point.

    Toyota seems like they have gone to all extremes to go for the mpg goal here in NA, cutting weight everywhere possible, even cutting an already low drag. I wonder how the new Prius will navigate speed bumps and bad driveways, it's so low.

    Or how flat the cargo area is with the rear seats folded down.

    I'm curious how the tread width is greater on the 15" rim tires of the Gen 4 vs Gen 3 when the official tire size is the same. Just a difference in the OEM tires? Also I'm surprised that the tread width is greater on the 15" vs the 17".

    It is track width, not thread width of the tire.
    The track width is more on 15" because outside width is same for all models. Because of wider 17" tires, the wheel has more inward offset to align outer width(to keep the wheel under fenders).

    So the centerline of the 17" wider tire moved inward making technically narrower track than 15" version.

    That makes sense. They confused me using "tread" rather than "track"

    You are right, they used incorrect term mistakenly.

    Here is my previous again:

    Ok. Not having HUD & Moonroof on 4T is bad enough, but I'm seeing that while Premium Convenience Package (which includes Intelligent Parking Assist (IPA) with Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS), Entune™ Premium JBL® Audio w/ Navigation and App Suite, Safety Connect) is available, Toyota Safety Sense (TSS)
    (which includes Pre-Collision System w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert w/ Lane Keep Assist, Auto High Beams and Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control) is not available. Can this be true?

    If true, this means that PCS w/PD, LDA w/LKA, AHB, and FSDRC are not available on 4T? This a shame, heaven forbid, why would they do that?

    Please correct me if I have any of this wrong but in the meantime I say again,

    Oh No!

    I think it's "not available" because it's already included. That's how I understood it.

    Can you show us exactly how those items are available (I don't mean on Trim 4 but on Trim 4T}.

    Netcub answered it. It's because TSS-P is standard on Touring models (See his post above this one).


    Note that even if you don't have a HUD, the navigation instructions can be displayed on the 4.2" MID.

    Ok, I did miss-read the PDF above. TSS is standard on T4 but ATP is not. That means we (T4 buyers) don't have access to HUD or Moonroof. That's not so bad. Thank you
