In what way is this "sporty" ?

Does it have up-rated suspension ? Wilder camshafts ? Close-ratio gears ? Lightened flywheel ? Lightweight bodywork ?

Probably has more turns on the electric motor, like RC cars do, lol

I do like Autocar's mention of it still getting 70 mpg.....How many times has this been disproved? And even if it is true, a decent small diesel will better it!

What utter rubbish. If I hate anything, it's all the lies, myths and misinformation that is spread by the uninformed in these forums.

The Ford Mondeo, Vauxhall Insignia, Honda Accord, Skoda Superb, Volkswagen Golf and Passat all have models that cost the same as or more than an entry level C Class. Yet because it's the Prius, the usual suspects start foaming at the mouth and protesting shock at the idea that a car might cost more.

I would happily pay triple company car running costs to run a C class over a Prius.

So easy to claim that when you don't have to put your money where your mouth is. We actually did, with the choice of anything up to an entry level 3 Series, we picked a Prius. Unlike many of the forum posters who seem in awe of anything with a premium badge, we're completely aware that entry level premium cars aren't especially special or pleasant places to be. Whilst you may have a surplus of cash to throw away, we aren't interested in spending an extra £5000 over three years just to get a lower spec manual diesel. You can buy a lot of far more interesting things with £5k.

And for what it's worth, if it's my own money: I'm with Beachland2. I'm selling our "premium" diesel car to get something that doesn't need a £1300 DPF "service" and doesn't have the worry about expensive turbo or injector failures. At 90k miles our last Prius felt like it would go on forever. Can't say the same about my "premium" BMW...
