Stylish exterior, cheap looking interior
July 8, 2018
I have seen this body style around town, and fell in love with the red newer body style Prius. I finally went to the dealer to try one. The car they showed me was full of dings, chips, and scratches. They said they had just gotten it in, and hadn’t had a chance to condition it. I definitely don’t hold that against the car, but against the previous owner. But the thing that this made me was how cheesy looking in the interior was with shiny white plastic here and there. For a relatively expensive compact car ($23,000 used, up to $35,000 new) it is amazing that they can’t seem to make it look like it’s not a $10,000 car in the interior. I also didn’t want a black interior, especially the dash and floors, as they are too hard to keep clean. But apparently the newer body style only comes with a black dash and black carpet ( even if the rest of the interior is another color) but the vast majority are all black, except for the cheap white plastic details, and some have cheesy black and white seats. I love the car, approaching it from the outside, but would hate every moment I spent driving it because it’s so ugly on the inside.
