Don't get me wrong. I don't hate the Prius. We're probably going to buy
one in the next week or month. But it is what it is: a good, high-mpg,
commute car for one or two adults. The hatchback is a big plus because
so few hatchbacks are still available. Toyota could even make a
non-hybrid Prius and it would sell but they have to Corolla for compact
buyers that want something less costly.
The last two generations of Camry hybrids (well the only generations of
the hybrid model) are essentially luxury cars. Very solidly built,
excellent power and handling, and Toyota re-contented some of the stuff
that they removed in the 4th and 5th generations. The 4th and 5th
generations were the "dark years" for the Camry but the 6th and 7th
generations restored the Camry's reputation with excellent quality
interior materials, more noise reduction, and excellent craftsaenship.

I've had one for 7 years and 140K miles. I've taken family vacations in
it, and I've taken it on plenty of road trips. It's well beyond just a
"commuter" car, without question.
The Prius C is the commuter car.
Wow. The Camry I tried out was utter crap, even compared to my Prius.

That's not the car-rental sizing. That's the gummint sizing. Everything
I agree with almost everything that you have said and almost everything that
you will say in your entire life.
