Default Options that are now standard?

In the history of the Prius, regardless of where it's sold, what items
or accessories that were, in the past, an option are now standard? This
is regardless of trim line.

One that I can think of is the smart key.

cruise control - optional 2001 soon became standard
folding rear seat - optional 2001-03 in Japan and Europe became
standard
HID headlights - optional 2004-09 became standard 2010

There may be others.

I think 2010 has LED headlights - not HID. IMO, they are much
better. Similar performance without all the complication (eg, high
voltage, have to warm up) and cost of HID.

Only the 2019 V; therefore, it's an option.

Without the option, do you get HID or incandescent?

My 2010 has LED, but a previous post said HID was standard. That
would surprise me since HID is probably the most expensive of the
three to manufacture. Maybe they had a large number of HIDs in stock.

Argh. I meant 2010, not 2019.

<http://www.toyota.com/prius-hybrid/features.html>

Halogen is standard on Prius two through four, and LED is standard on five
in the 2011 models; I expect that's the same for the 2010. LED stop and
tail lights are standard on all models. Only the five has fog lamps.

"Hybrid Synergy Drive(R) blue accent headlamps and badges" are standard on
all models; I don't know what "blue accent headlamps" are, though.

In US: cruise control was not available in 2001. Optional in 2002.
Daytime Running lights. Optional in 2002. Not available since in US, but
(by law) standard in Canada.

I have no idea. I just went out to the garage to look. Nothing is
blue anywhere near the headlamps. (2010-V)
