Where did you dream that up, using external dimensions the Prius is
narrower than a Corolla, unless Toyota have invented a new Tardis where
did the extra 7 inches of hip room come from?

I went by the Edmunds site.

But now I'm on Toyota's site.  Toyota agrees:  rear hip room on the
Corolla is 43in, on the Prius is 51in.

Can you dispute those numbers?

I'm not dreaming anything up.  You are.

 From the same source as you the Corolla is 0.6" wider than the Prius so
either that number is incorrect or the "hip room" dimension is.
I don't see how its possible for a car that is narrower on the outside
to be 7" wider on the inside, maybe Toyota have invented a real Tardis,
Dr Who will be pleased.

It's quite possible, depending on how the interior trim works out.

By the simple fact of having driven both of them.
