    AFAIK, there is no Gen 4 C. We're a 2.5 + technology. Also, Sam would know a troll, he does it enough. :D

    I agree that I fit my PC into spaces much easier than most cars I've driven. The turning radius was larger than my old Saturn, but is smaller than my wife's Honda Civic... so not sure how small you need. It's absolutely smaller than my dad's GMC Sierra, which feels gigantic in comparison.

    Look dude, it's a Prius IV...gen IV...whatever. Be a pretentious prick about it. I had a 2006 Prius IV the last time I logged in, about 7 years ago, and didn't update my car. I come here for specific problems. I'm not an expert, so gen IV, IV, whatever, the larger wheels in this version make the turning radius suck. And it's totally different than other C's. I think they only did this in 2013...

    Take it down to Johnson alignment at Hawthorne Blvd. Torrance. Those guys are the best of the best in So Cal. Your steering problem is more likely gonna get solve the right way, They have been in the same location since the 50's. Everything old school

    And I think you are still confused.
    Toyota has NEVER designated it's trim levels for the C with roman numerals.

    I just traded in TWO '13 C's and they were virtually identical to the '17 and '18 C's that I replaced them with.

    I don't think you have a C at all. How about posting a picture of the rear hatch area......where Toyota puts the logo's.

    2012 had the larger wheels on the PC 4 if it came with 16" wheels.

    2012 C 1/2/3/4 w/15" wheels - 15.7'
    2012 C 4 w/ optional alloy 16" wheels - 18.5'.

    2012 Honda Civic - 17.7'
    2012 Chevy Suburnban - 21.5' to 22.65'

    Still confused how turning radius makes it hard to park this little car, though.
