2012 Toyota Prius V

To get behind the wheel of most new 2013 Toyota Prius models, you'll have to pony up some extra cost compared to 2012 models. Around the cost of a few tanks of gas. The standard Prius Liftback version goes up by $200 and the Prius V goes up by between $100 and $155. The price for the Prius Plug-In stays the same (as does the one for the Prius C, we assume, as that model is not mentioned in Toyota's press release).

The Liftback version also gets a new Persona Series Special Edition that slots in between the Three and Four trim lines at $27,130 (plus delivery). Based on the Three trim level, the new Persona Special Edition gets a unique exterior color called Black Cherry Pearl (also available in Black and Blizzard Pearl), special badges and 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, you'll find something called Softex on the steering wheel in a charcoal color and a dark chrome shift knob ring.

Full details on the price increases are available below.
