    I'm wondering if I should get a dash mat for 2020 Prius Prime. Does anyone have one? How much was it and where did you get it? Easy to install? Any info is appreciated.

    Only problem with dash mats is the reflection onto the windshield.

    When I got a beige model, the reflection was bad. I switched to black, and it is not as bad.

    Still, there is a faint residual reflection. Eventually, you don't notice it while driving.

    Depending on its size, a dashboard mat or cover might also interfere with proper deployment of the front passenger airbag. In the Owner’s Manual (PDF), on page 42, see the warnings and the first illustration, which shows the approximate locations of the airbag modules with gray shading.

    No issues with airbag interference on Gen 3 models. The dash mat fits above the passenger airbag deployment area. Thought of that already, before I purchased the dash cover. The reflection; unexpected.
