    The front looks decent, but the rear...

    That white one looks kinda cool but thats because it resembles a DC5 like ryam said. But im with home boy who started the thread, whilst they are comfy, economic and generaly nice 2 ride in it stil dosn't get by the fact that they look like a fucked up block of cheese.

    there are certainly ugly cars on the road. They do a job. If you don't like them don't buy one simples

    they are that shape for good reason

    That reason being that aerodynamicly, they are very very efficient, more so than a DC5 etc etc. So much so that if you put a K20A into one , you'd probably find it will shock alot of other "fast" cars

    Shame the back end of all Prius's are totally gash, but like Gynx said, it's probs made like that to be most fuel effecient/aerodynamic - the Honda Insight has a similar back end too

    It is entirely made like that for a reason.

    They are absolute brilliant cars, especially the later Prius with the 1.8 engine and 140 HP.

    Probably beat a lot of Civics in a straight line and around a track on here too. lol.

    I don't even know why I'm posting in such a thread in the steam room, I've lowered myself to the silly mentality. Then again, it is 4:00 in the morning. Grow up Aaron. Tut!

    Not a fan of prius's at all, weirdest things ever to drive

    I had a demo for about a week when worked for Toyota, I thought it was nice, not quick at all but very smooth and nice to drive

    I don't mind hybrids but I don't really know if they are the future, I hope so because performance hybrids that run on electric round town and petrol when you want some fun would be brilliant
