Does anyone else find the Prime's drivers seat hard to get out of?

    Hi - New member here and currently trying to decide which PHEV to buy. We are in BC in Canada so not too many candidates yet, but they are coming fast. My wife likes everything about the Prime except egress. She has lots of arthritis and has had two total knee replacements. Some days it is a struggle for her to exit a low seat car. We will be selling her 2012 CRV (which is easy for her for ingress/egress with its higher driver's seat).

    Seems to be lots of real-world wisdom here - I have a lot of reading to do!

    Toyota dropped the height of the Prius by at least an inch or so. It is more of a 'climb' out than 'falling out' of the BMW i3-REx. However, the BMW has a little climb challenge to get in. Pay me now or pay me later.
