2005 vs 2006 Prius
 
Thank you all for your inputs to this forum - they are extremely helpful. The Prius has quite a following.
I just put down a deposit and added myself to the waiting list - it is 3 months here in Tennessee. I can opt to go early in January and get an '05 or a bit later and get an '06. I think they ship the '06s in mid January.
Are there any advantages of the '06 over the '05?

For all the information you get from Toyota, they could all be "convertibles." Why not? Most are sold in California and Florida

06 Prius adventage over the 05 ? See "Dealers" section under the
_Author_ C.Rickey Hirose. I have posted some info on the 06 PRIUS

Difference in 05 and 06
 
Difference will be limited to the Exterior Mostly............Take alook, New Head and Tail Light.

Also the Packages will have a Back-up Camara Added and the Sterio will become MP3 Compatible........

Packages will be basically the same as before up to Package #5.....Package #6 is the same as the '05 version except it removes the Navagation Feature and Keeps the Bluetooth. The 2005 Package #6 is now the 2006 Package #7. Then they add a Package #8 ............which is the 2005 Package #6 ( now the 2006 pack #7) with Factory Leather Added.

The biggest difference is in the Tax Break................. $2,000.00 Taxable Income Deduction Vs. $3,150 Subtraction from Taxes Owed.

More Later..............

According to Toyota here: http://pressroom.toyota.com/presstxt/20 ... ius_fo.pdf
With the exception of the GY package (#2 from 2004, #1 from 2005, now #1 for 2006), all the option packages have the rear camera and the "audio with MP3 and input jack."


I'd be surprised if there are any new 2005 Prius being sold in calendar year 2006, since the 2006 Prius should start being delivered around Thanksgiving... (I doubt that any 2005s will be held over that long on a dealer lot, and chances are that the tax credit legislation is like all the other hybrid deductions/credits - only good on purchases of new vehicles, not used vehicles, not leases...)

mrv,

98% Correct.............But, the arrival date for the first 2006's have been pushed back to the 3rd of December. I doubt we'll see one before that time.

Thanks for the Im-put.

I'm open to either a '05 or '06. It sounds like the '06s have some improvements.
