    I want to buy a Prius v (lowercase v for the Prius v wagon). I usually buy used, but I keep an open mind.
    I want to compare 2013, 14 and the current new model '15, especially the lower end 1 2 and maybe 3 models.
    Is there a comparison chart, or basic overview somewhere that I've missed in my searches?
    Are there any significant differences between these three model years? (I don't care about trim)
    And of course, what question should I have asked? Thanks

    2014 and everything before is pretty much the same. The moon roof became an option without the ATP package in 2014.

    2015 has a minor re-design of body, better crash test scores and new nav system/display. The ATP package changed in 2015 as well, plus the addition of a "Four" trim level.

    One major difference between 2014 Prius v Three and 2015 Prius v Three is the sensor on the hatch. With the 2015, you can have the fob in your pocket or purse and open the hatch door. You need to press the unlock twice or once (if your changed it) on the 2014 fob for the doors and hatch. 2014 Five and 2015 Three, Four, Five has this feature.
