"38 miles per gallon highway baby if you feel like doing a spread sheet against the average Prius over 12000 miles a yearthis car will win because its cheaper to start with and at that 38 vs. 50 difference it will take 16 years before the Prius catches the Corolla. In 16 years that Prius will be just as wheezy as the Corolla. Save yourself a fortune. And thumb your nose at the Prius snobs. Pass 'em going 110 if you push it hard. Oh yeah, the ladies think it looks cool and it can fit in a pretty small parking spot. Cheap to insure and maintain."
