    I'm looking for a couple accessories and I can't seem to find them through toyota.com. (USA website)

    One is the privacy cover for the hatch, so people can't see what's in the trunk.

    The other is the little rubber corners that go in the hatch to keep things from sliding around. (espeically boxes)

    My mom's 2016 Prius has these, and I think they're Toyota parts, but I didn't see any reference to them when I was buying mine.

    Thanks!

    I just checked now; thanks for the reference. However, the accessories I'm looking for aren't there. I'm a bit surprised that the trunk cover at least, is not a factory option...

    The privacy cover came with my 2016 as standard. It was hidden in a relatively small black cloth envelope in the trunk and unfolds for installation (four loops that attach to 6 plastic "Ts"; two near the rear seat back, two on the hatch lid and two on the lower rear of the car.

    My 2016 Three w/ATP came with the soft tonneau cover. I believe the higher trims came with the hard tonneau covers.

    Starting in the middle of 2017 they removed the cover and hardware from the Two Eco. As far as I know, the Two still comes with the flexible cargo cover.
    That means there is no Toyota cover for the Two Eco, if that is the trim you have.

    It is standard on all trims except the Two Eco.

    If you have a Two like your profile says, it should have come standard with a flexible cargo cover in a storage bag. There should be 2 hooks behind the rear seat to fasten the cover. The Two Eco has different trim without these or the other mounting hardware..

    I have a regular Two. Didn't come with it. I'll ask the stealership when I go back to get my sunglasses.

    They removed it mid-2017 when they added some safety features. I would not expect there was much weight savings deleting the cover & hardware.

    This is where my boot/hatch cover was stored when I first saw the car.

    I wouldn't worry about using it - it's pretty hopeless. Mine has been in the wardrobe almost 2 years - I'll put it back in 12 months if I change cars.

    These solid covers are much better - but not offered on PRIUS. It's offered on the budget Corolla and Yaris, but only a poor version on PRIUS which is a much more expensive car.

    Might be time to hit up the aftermarket via FeeBay.

    I found the cheap cargo area cover. The porter suck it under the all weather hatchback cover. He also didn't bother to put on the all weather parts that Velcro to the back of the back seats.

    That's one less thing to buy. Thanks for the reminder to check there!

    There are also all weather parts that Velcro to the areas between the rear seats and the cargo floor.
