That seems to be a very good price on a Prius III w/solar roof. I was just quoted $25700 + $500 doc + TTL. Your quote is giving me pause. I would jump on that. If you don't, mind telling me where it is?

If I might put my 2 cents in, I think the question about how much of a discount to expect starts from the wrong premise. I always thought the way to get the best price was to start with dealer's cost (which you can find on Edmund's) on the make, model, options you want and decide how much "profit" you are willing to give the dealer. Note that cost does not include ANY fees, destination charges, ttl, etc. So, your final price out the door is cost + profit + destination charge + ttl. I would NEVER agree to document charges or advertising costs...those are just not-so-hidden ways to up the price. If Edmunds tells you that your region has an average higher or lower price, then use that as a guideline also. Good luck!

I just paid $27200 for a Red Prius III w/solar roof package. This was out-the-door in Durham, NC. I could have saved a little more - maybe $800 - had I flown to Florida, where I found the same vehicle for $26000. But the flight, gas, and probably hotel would have cost me $400 total, plus my time, so I just went to the local dealer, showed them my quotes from other local dealers and this one in Florida, and they met me half way. I thought that was fair. They beat five other local dealers by $600, who were all around $28k otd.

I am in final negotiation to purchase a new 2012 prius c black, 4 trim no moon-roof, for 22,700 out the door! I am using truecar to buy my second toyota, not a bad experience! Just make sure to stick to your truecar price, even if dealer tries to upsell. For toyota, the south has the best pricing! I use ATL zip code 30303 and tampa zip code 33601 for best pricing.

#1135 of 1269 How much difference between Prius II & III?
Feb 14, 2013 (10:51 pm)
I got deal 25000 OTD Prius II with leather seat.
However, my huz want to add navigaion. So I need to go with Prius III.

It should be less, unless taxes are included in your state. "OTD" here in MO means the price of the car and any dealer fees, but taxes are paid when you get plates at the DMV. That price wouldn't be too great here, because you can get a Prius II down around 22k, then add 1k to 1.5k to be switched over to leather (remember you can negotiate that cost as well).

I think 25k would be a fair deal for a Prius III with leather added.
