I am about 5'4" and in the short time I sat in a new Prius, I felt like I couldn't see good. I have a Windstar and although it too has a wide dash and you can't see where the car ends, you sit up higher and feel like your visability is good. I did order my new Prius, but this keeps nagging at me and I wonder if any other people feel/felt the same as I do and do you just get use to it? I felt like I was sitting down in a pocket. Thank you.[/b]

Visibility

Got a phone booK to sit on?

Just kidding. I'm not a member of the "Tree Toppers" Club either but I don't have any problem (5'07"). With that said, I can't see the front end of the hood either. I don't think anyone can due to the angle.

Once you get use to driving a car vs. the Windstar, you won't have any problems. Also, it's possible your seat may have been tilted back a bit too much. Tilt it forward one click and I'm sure you'll be fine.

Remember, this car was built in Japan. At 5'4" you aren't too short for this vehicle.

There are four bolts that hold my seat to the floor.
It should be pretty straightforward to raise the seat
if you don't like it.
