    I was going to say the 12 volt battery, but that should now be up in the engine bay. So I second the tire repair kit.

    There is another cubby hole for small storage over there behind the wheel, so I can't tell if that's just the floor shape when both covers are off.

    Automobile Mag - 10/5/2016 - Second Drive: 2017 Toyota Prius Prime

    Generally positive review.

    Noticed this error: "It achieves a slippery drag coefficient of 0.24, which is slightly better than the standard model’s 0.25."

    Also of note: "Toyota engineers tell us that within a few years, when the Prime is due for its mid-cycle refresh, we’ll see even more EV range as a result of improved energy density in batteries."

    That was seen in the gen1 Volt, and I think the 2017 Energis have a slight improvement using the current battery by better control laws for the system.

    And I think look don't matter. Very few modern cars look good anyway, and any that do are entirely impractical.
