    Habanero for me! I'm a chili-head so it was just calling my name. The yellow looks too much like the Pikachu VW Beetle for me lol.

    Thought I'd be helpful and re-add this. Member Yasushi found this video that I placed in the Prius C Colors thread:

    Funny - Summer Rain is the color I ordered and put a deposit on. They already sold all the SR's they had. :(

    Corvidae - They did have a Habanero and a Super White left when I went back to buy. I did have to think long and hard on the Habanero LOL.:D

    Was that a drum rear brake on the first video at .19?

    Do the C's have any alloys under those hideous hubcaps? If not, best to buy new wheels for your GenIII, then save the stockers to put on these Prius C's.

    Sorry, I can't focus on colors.

    In 2012? I'm trying to figure out The Japanese fascination with "Blondie". There is something oddly frightening about it....

    The only color of the bunch they decided not to bring to the States.

    Maybe they're holding Yellow back for the GTc edition!:)

    steel wheels on One and Two, alloys available as an add-on for Three ($390 MSRP), and alloys standard on Four (along with an option to upgrade to 16" alloys for $300).

    none of the alloy options have covers.

    Drum brakes are much lighter and simpler to put a manual cable-operated parking brake on. If they put discs on back, they'd need to have a cable-operated axle-brake for the parking brake, and that would add weight and expense.
