    I just bought my second Prius and had expected to find a storage space under the rear deck/above the spare tire as there was on the Gen3 models instead of a lowered deck. I liked the hidden storage as well as the deck that was flush with the folded rear seatbacks.

    Is there a kit or has anyone made a deck to level the deck and make a shallow storage space?

    The TNGA platform which Gen 4 is built on required a "back to square 1" redesign - to great effect.

    The car is dramatically better to drive, it's got more and more mature equipment, has significantly better aerodynamics - but a redesigned boot area to fit.

    yes, a lot of people are pulling the styrofoam, and replacing it with the alternate dealer parts. or you can diy for cheap.
