My Prius' does, because it's resistive. A lot of gloves sold now are compatible with capacitive touchscreens, too. Only advantage I see for a touchscreen is it can be changed so more features can be packed into a small space. Buttons are much nicer to actually use; fortunately the Prius has most of the climate controls as buttons on the steering wheel in addition to the touchscreen.
