    I also came from the gen 2. This one definitely feels wider. I have to do a 90 degree turn to park along the wall in my condo garage. I never had a problem with the gen 2 but this new baby is hard to park!

    To me, I like space to cross my left leg when I drive (yeah, strange). Honda's earlier Civics were masters at giving more sideways legroom by making the "control bar" with the window and door controls "tilt up" at the halfway point, giving your leg clearance for plenty of sideways space. But Toyota never really did this (and Honda has stopped doing it as well in their latest Civics) so I'm kind of sad to see that. Thankfully though, the Prime has just enough clearance even with the flat horizontal control/left arm rest. Roomy enough for me. Hatch space is another matter (pretty bleak) but for me personally it's more than enough (I never have much in the trunk/hatch). Though I suppose there will be a few scattered days when I'm asked to drive people to the airport with 7 giant suitcases (or another similar situation) where I'll feel the pain. But for everyday normal driving for me, it's roomy and fine.

    I've had LESSMOG for 11 years. I want to retire it. It's going to be something about the Car or related to Dr Who. RVRSNG is taken in my state, that would have been good, I have hair like her! Still trying to think of something about the car. Just put a deposit on a blue Prime

    I just missed out on "PRIME" by a few hours when personalized plates were finally made legal here (a few months ago), so I had to settle for my name . . . .

    MITHRIL PLATE.png We recently traded in our '08 Prius / Pkg III / Classic Silver Metallic (for a Prime / Premium). With about a 50/50 split... due to the '08's color AND due to my being an avid fan of the LOTR movies, I decided on MITHRIL as its plate.

    As of now, that plate is on our Blue Magnetism Prime, but it doesn't really "work" with that color. I've already decided on the also LOTR-Related personalized plate I plan to use with our Prime, but I'm not going to share it here quite yet... I'm afraid someone might "steal" my idea for the plate before I get actually HAVE it....

    PS: "BONUS POINTS" to the person who first guesses what our Prime's plate will be... multiple guesses (from each person) are allowed... the "WINNER" (if any) will be announced AFTER the plate is in my grubby little dwarf-like hands........

    How do you abbreviate "Arkenstone" so it fits and is understandable . . . . Hmmmm.

    Ooooh... I *like* that idea! MY go at it would probably be "RKNSTONE"... I *believe* IN plates can have up to 8 characters, because I seem to recall there was one "block" left on the form when I applied for "MITHRIL". IF only 7 are allowed, then I'd probably drop either the E or the O....

    ...but anywhooo... your guess ain't it... snicker....

    PIPPPIN - 01 - 22553408_1491863817570800_2106754538_o.jpg Well, no other "guessers" it would seem... and so....

    Our personalized plate came in the mail on Thursday, and I finally got around to mounting it a few hours ago. I've simply GOT TO get rid of that "free advertising" though... especially since I had ASKED the dealership that it NOT be affixed!!! Anywhooo...

    I had asked for just-plain "PIPPIN" (I would have just "left off " the "Premium" bit from above)... but by the time I asked for that, it had been "taken"! (I guess it's a good thing we didn't get the "Advanced" model after all!)

    Nice...yes the spot where the free advertising is would be a good place for an Optimus Prime sticker.
