2012 Toyota Prius C: Welcomes You Back
May 3, 2013
A lot of cars nowadays seem to incorporate technology that allows them to "recognize" their drivers. Examples include Jaguar's ignition button pulsing with a heartbeat cadence, or Cadillac's CUE system initiating the moment your posterior hits the leather.
The Prius has a similar feature, though it's a little more akin to Jaguar's in its subtlety. Approach the car at night with the key on your person and the interior dome lights warm to a welcoming glow, even before you actively unlock the car or reach out to open the door.
It's a small thing, but after a long day at work it's cool that your car is there waiting to greet you. Or maybe I'm just easily amused.
