    I always thought there was 'something' different between a base model and a Prius II..What are those differences if any? I don't see the point in calling it a II when its a dead ringer for a base model.

    Fill me in please.

    Then all these years I've been driving a II and not a base because it

    had cruise. Oh well.

    Thanks

    a lot of dealers don't know what they are selling. i think you can go to toyota owners, sign up and input your vin.

    Be glad. We had people come here and thought they bought a trim 4 or 5 from local dealers, turns out it was really a 2, and paid trim 4 or 5 dollars for it.

    I think there actually was a I (one) that was sold only to fleets. So for regular dealers the II was base.
