    This is a thought-provoking posting - the idea of just getting a Prius instead of another subcompact because the driving experience is transparent, and it will get you better mpg into the bargain. I appreciate the thought that went into making that value proposition argument, in contrast to the other posts by other staffers today, that find me shaking my head and laughing before I even finish reading them.
  • Erin, have you forgotten about the Sonic? You can get a 2013 LTZ with turbo and sunroof for $19,200-- according to Edmunds. Those are options that make a difference. I can't remember the numbers for the 1.4 Sonic, but there can't be that much difference between the Sonic and the C. It seems to me that the $ difference between subcompacts, compacts, and midsize is smaller, and the gas mileage is catching up to the subs. (Oh, how I hate not being able to use paragraphs. Hope you can fix that sometime.)
  • ED124C same here. Anyway. I was driving along for a while in Japan over the summer, and I saw at least 15 car delivery trucks, (Is that what you call those?) on the way. 14 carried Prius Cs (Toyta Aquas) exclusively. Yeah, they sell well, for a reason.
