    Hi Everyone,
    Local dealers do not have any bisque interiors for us to look at in person, we need your input:
    Our Black Prius with a Bisque interior is on order and the installer for our custom trim says that the dashboard area and door area is pure black, not black with some areas of dark gray. We recall there was indeed gray tones on the interior too, as well as just black.

    PLEASE, before we make an ordering mistake, do you all have some gray on your dashboards?

    Many thanks for any input on this...
    -Madeleine

    Madeleine,

    I have two touring Pkg #6 models with the Bisque interior. One is Barcelona Red and the other is Driftwood Pearl. The dash around the steering column and both glove boxes are the black, crinkly material. The metal areas around the vents and Nav Unit LCD are a Titanium colored metal. This is probably the "gray" tone you remember. The same is true of the door area with some areas of bisque colored simulation leather, black crinkly, and metal titanium colored areas. If you search for a previous post of mine entitled "Finally, Pics of my new Prius", you will see a shot of an open drivers door and a little of the interior.

    Good luck and enjoy your new Prii!!!!

    Madeleine,

    There's a few interior shots on my Flickr page. A couple are close up around the dash center, and show the gray pieces that make up the air vents. Otherwise it is all black. Hope it helps.

    The Black and Bisque is going to look awesome!

    My 07 Bisque: Dash is pure black but doors as you can see have Bisque colored inserts. The seat covers although are a lovely color and texture but sometimes I get dirty at work so seat covers were a necessity. These are the Wet Okoles basic with 2 tone. Google: WET OKOLE. The Bisque color on the seats is pretty close and they are very padded so the seats feel alot better and are made out of a neoprene type fabric that is very tough & have resisted dirt and water excellent so far. Fit is perfect and comes with center console cover thats cloth and a little cheesy but works. I usually drive with a small towel over the entire console anyway to protect the plastci.

    Hi Madeleine,

    As the different posted pictures show, except for the metallic trim around the vents, the dash and top of the doors plastic is definitely black -- different shades and textures of black (I count at least 4 or 5), but all black.

    Note, I think the 04's and 05's had some burgandy and/or different textures of black.

    I've been looking at those seat covers! Love the look! Do you remember what color you picked for the middle?
