Ouch. That looks like it might be a 1* ride if the headroom in back is as bad as it looks. I guess Toyota's trying to upsell would be Prius buyers on the Prius V.

Although I first thought the third gen Priuses (Priusi?) were not so appealing on the outside, I've come to love their sleek lines and sharp rear lights and spoiler. As for this 4th gen model...it makes me want to upchuck. Looks like they merged a Ford Fusion with the 3rd gen and went back to counting their money until the 5th gen in 2020. Joke and a half...

That pic looks bad, but in the gallery in the article it doesn't look quite as bad. Mostly as expected, a little less Priusy, a more angular/squared off rear end (seems to be all the rage on the new models, the new Rav4, Maxima, and many others have it). The big bonus here is the flying buttress center console appears to be replaced with a more reasonable one, still not completely open in front like the C and V are. Not sure about headroom in the rear, that does look a bit angled and might be an issue, have get in one to find out.

It is one my list of vehicles to look at in a couple of years when I need to replace my current one. Will have to see how it all works out, it's still a Prius and will be dirt cheap to operate and maintain, including getting about 5 mpg better than the gen III. The main reason I don't have a full sized Prius right now is because of that center console.
