Which is what I said.

I'm profoundly embarrassed :)

Yeah, me too :)

It would be STUPID to buy a car that's almost double the money for the
same interior space, unless the cheaper one only got three miles to the
gallon or something.
US Corolla specs are here:
US Prius specs are here:
the Prius has significantly more rear seat room overall, and also has
larger luggage space, than the Corolla.
I know. I've driven both. The difference shows up BIG time when you
simply go and sit in them, side by side.
Edmunds shows the Corolla now selling at about US$4,000 for a 2009
model. That makes the Prius, at US$3,000, about 55% more expensive.
But if you need a bigger car that seats everyone much more easily, what
else are you going to do?
Fact: some families can't make do with a Corolla, and you couldn't get
me into a deathtrap Kia of any kind.
Your smug attitude is WAY WORSE than the WORST Pius owner in Los Angeles.

BTW I drive a Toyota Hilux dual cab 3.0lt Turbo diesel which is bigger,
much more versatile as far as carrying loads and people and uses only
slightly more fuel than either a Corolla or a Prius and it cost about
the same as a Prius.

I never said "large family". I simply said, "family". Mine has four
members, and they are VERY comfortable inside a Prius and are not
comfortable inside a Corolla.
