Aside from all of that, the Prius is an eyesore. Does making the car so freakishly ugly add to fuel economy? Or is it like, “if it tastes bad it must be good for you” type thing?
Not as ugly as the Honda Insight, that brightly painted suppository on wheels.
“Aside from all of that, the Prius is an eyesore.”
I hear that! Yup, my least favorite auto. A Gremlin is better looking.
Soon, they will remove the side mirrors and replace the rear view with “tiny cameras”, to improve drag. I don’t think it will improve appearances much, and everyone is pretty much used to side mirrors by now.
