Both of you are wrong..If the basic version had leather you will PAY MORE for the basic version in the sticker price.
Where did you read it is 80% the same as Auris? Any facts?
The woman has 5 inches in front of her legs.. doesn't look cramped. This is a relatively small car. It is not a large gas guzzling bloated wasteful hummer.
1. 80% of MECHANICAL PARTS
2. CT200h is 7cm longer than Auris
3. And YES giving a cheaper solution to people who have less money to spend will make this car a SUCCESS! Don't forget that NO LEATHER OPTION is also available in A3 AUDI and BMW-1 both ct200h's competirors.. Plus AUDI is also available with 1200cc ...which is LAME in my point of view..
