2010 Toyota Prius
Once again, our last posting for the month is our five most popular posts on AllAboutPrius for March:
# 1: 2010 Toyota Prius: Overview. Not surprisingly, with Toyota's publicity blitz around its all-new, better-than-ever 2010 Prius, that car's overview page became the most popular on our site. Bottom Line: We're offering a full "30 Days of the 2010 Toyota Prius" series, running down every facet of the hybrid world's best-known most visible offering.
# 2: 2010 Toyota Prius: Our Fearless Predictions. We continue to be puzzled by this one's continuing popularity, but we expect by next month it will have been replaced by pages that offer, you know, real details. By the way, just ignore our predictions that we'd have seen a Scion hybrid coupe or Toyota Prius station wagon or crossover by now. Bottom Line: For everything you need to know, read our detailed 2010 Toyota Prius page instead.
# 3: Is the 2010 Toyota Prius Too Fancy For Its Own Good? This piece, written before its introduction, looked at whether the new, more luxe 2010 Prius might be overshooting a bit, and hence vulnerable to the 41-mpg 2010 Honda Insight, with a base price of just $20,400. Bottom Line: We think the Insight will do very well, but it's an entire car class smaller than the Prius. And the company has now said they'll offer a smaller hybrid, based on their Yaris model, to go head-to-head with the Insight--leaving the Prius as the prestige hybrid atop Toyota's growing range.
# 4: 2009 Toyota Prius: Overview. "I'm not dead yet!" howls the 2009 Toyota Prius, lost in the shadows while all the spotlights shine on its newer, more glamorous younger sister. Bottom Line: Plenty of people are looking right now at whether to buy a 2009 Prius (the new one won't hit dealers til around Memorial Day), and this page gives you all the info.
# 5: Ten Things the 2010 Toyota Prius Will Not Do For You. This hilarious and snarky collection of quips by our colleague Marty Padgett underscores an inconvenient truth: The 2010 Toyota Prius is, after all, just a car. Bottom Line: Despite an occasional solemn promise from a true believer, even the world's most recognizable hybrid car won't substitute for taking control of your life and finding your own happiness. It won't make you coffee or breakfast the next morning, either.
