    Hi is there any other way of opening the Trunk/Hatch on the 2016 Prius other that pressing the button on the actual trunk/hatch?

    I really have a cheeseburger and fries in each hand! But didn't want to sound like a pig.

    So if you have both hands full how are you gonna get to the fob in your pocket and then press the button? With that third hand?

    Beats me! Maybe they can make it like Ford, where you wave your foot under the rear end?

    I better just finish that cheeseburger before I gear to the car. :)

    Required by law, isn't it? It wouldn't be convenient to reach while you have your hands full, though.

    Park that cheeseburger on the roof for a moment.
