    Car of the Year for people that are 47, and don't give a shit what they drive, and need something to get them from point A to point B. And w/ 50 MPG, it's a god-send to them.

    The technology that's in a Prius is actually pretty impressive. It's gonna take the domestics some time to catch up to it.

    motor trends awards mean dick. part of the requirements to win the award is to present to the magazine how the award will be used to promote the vehicle if it wins.

    basically whoever does the best job of sucking motor trends dick gets the award.

    The new Prius is faster (than some gas powered cars :o), bigger, better looking, and even more efficient and environmentatlly friendly that the last generation of Prius'.

    Toyota did a great job with the car. Definitely deserved Car of the Year.

    10.5+ seconds 0-60mph isn't something to brag about.

    Prius != Race car, but 10.5 sec >>>> 12-14 sec 0-60 it used to get.

    I'll take 10.5 seconds in exchange for 60-70mpg any day.
     
  23. Ouch. 10.5 sucks.
