New Prius Three owners will find similar upgrades to the Prius Two, but will also see a three-door smart key entry system that comes standard with this vehicle. The HD radio allows iTunes tagging and can recognize voice commands for easier control. Toyota also offers with the Prius Three a collection of mobile apps called Enute. This combines apps for popular web sites like Bing, MovieTicket.com, and Pandora with apps that aid in finding directions, gas stations, and nearby eateries.
There are many upgrades to the Prius Four for 2012. Drivers are given updated adjustable seating and have less to worry about with the new standard on/off head lamps. Along with the audio features of the Prius Three, the Prius Four also has a new, eight channel amplifier and eight GreenEdge speakers. GreenEdge technology is vital to the Prius as it reduces the electricity needed from the vehicle's engine. With the vehicle's engine freed from electricity consumption, fuel economy can greatly improve. The Prius Four also has an optional deluxe solar roof package. The roof package offers a sliding glass moonroof that is flanked by solar panels. These panels power a ventilation system that cools the car on sunny days, even while it is not in motion.
