    Why doesn't my Prius v five (with out the advanced technology package) with leather not have a leather steering wheel? It is a 2012 model. I notice all the other v's I see with leather also have the leather wheel. What do y'all think?

    None of them did. IIRC 2014 was the first year of v to have a Softex covered steering wheel.

    A Softex-like cover that fits perfectly is on Amazon: BDK-Genuine-Leather-Steering-Wheel product code B00Q3JTN5U

    I've replaced a Prius steering wheel before, maybe I'll do it to this one in the future. Thank you for the info

    I just bought this cover from Amazon. Fits nicely and like its quality for the price I paid.
