    Interesting that 1227 for the 4 is also called limited now. Makes sense.

    SM-N960U1 ?

    Those two are FWD. You can tell because FWD models have the vertical slats in black (at the edge of the front bumper). The AWD-e ones are silver painted with a vertical LED clearance light.

    Am I missing something, or does the 2019 refresh not provide Sirius XM radio unless you spring for the "limited" option? Sirius XM is not available for AWD at all??

    Not sure if someone else has already posted this, but:

    The 2019 Prius is finally listed on toyota.com as a current (no longer "upcoming") vehicle.

    Interested in 2019 XLE AWDe with advanced technology package. Spoke with dealership in Tennessee and was told they had AWD coming in next week. Looking at brochure, one place says advanced tech package comes with navigation, another place doesn't mention. Assume it does NOT have navigation, because I don't think it comes with 11 inch screen included on Limited (per pictures on car and driver). Can anyone verify if advanced tech package on XLE includes navigation? Thanks.

    When you build it on line does it include it in the description?

    The specifications section and/or PDF brochure should explain, hopefully.

    Looking at buying a 2019 limited today or tomorrow. That new light bluish pearl color.
    Need to know for sure if this vehicle slams on the brakes at slow speeds for garage walls and pretty women?
    I know the semi auto park is deleted which I never use anyway but am concerned that nothing else was deleted from the advanced tech package.
    I told the salesman he was my test dummy when the time comes.

    According to the brochure, ICS and IPA are standard on LE and above. So both semi-auto park and low speed collision avoidance are available.

    Actually it does have the IPA. Had to get my glasses out to read the sticker.

    Will you please post pictures of it when you get it? Are you not going for an awd model? Which color did you get? Is there a new light blue option? I don't see it online.

    Bought the light blue, it is awesome. This gets better MPG than the AWD on paper only. Also they only had lower trims of the AWD. Pictures next. Strange the AWD has more lights than the limited Prius.

    31,499 -17000 trade for my 2016 touring.

    The navigation screen is incredible but many of the buttons are gone so you have to figure out the new menu system.

    Wife was miffed at the plastic inserts where the lights go on the most expensive Limited Prius.

    Has road sign reading which I can not find any info. Will read the manual today. War and peace btw.

    I can confirm that there is no CD player and data stick size is unlisted in the manual. If they deleted the CD player then the data ports should be at least NFTS 128GB and allow lossless audio formats. It may do the Apple lossless but the Windows lossless is TBD.

    No information of any kind on the street sign camera can be found. It just says it has a camera up front in the windshield.
    Similar to the Highlander menu in that you have to go deep into the menu screens to reset all trip info. However you can reset trip A and B MPG at the same spot as usual. Just not in the Highlander.
    I sent Toyota a scathing review on safety for the Highlander as it does not have ICS or a full sensor array for parking and no obstacle auto stop.

    Prius does have auto stop and I can confirm that it auto stops in both directions for some objects. Skinny women it will not stop. Bushes and scrubs it will. Sensors have not changed in the Prius as the old one did the same thing.

    Auto stop technology has been around since the early 90's and I seem to remember a van ad years ago showing a van stopping for a kid on a tricycle. If it worked one time out of 100 it was worth having on the vehicle.
    This should be mandatory on every vehicle world wide.
