2010 Toyota Prius
June is about to exit, so once again it's time for the five most popular posts for the month on AllAboutPrius.com.
# 1: 30 Days of the 2010 Toyota Prius: Your Reference Guide. Hanging onto its perennial top ranking, this one remains by far our most popular content page. We meant it to offer an easy way to find all the basics on the 2010 Toyota Prius, and it seems to be working. Bottom Line: Start here for all the info you need on the 2010 Toyota Prius!
# 2: 2010 Toyota Prius: Overview. This one stays in the silver-medal position it regained last month after a fall to # 5 for May. Bottom Line: As before, our # 1 post is probably a better place to start if you're looking for a way into our full "30 Days of the 2010 Toyota Prius" series. Over the weeks, that index page will come to include pretty much every angle of the world's best-known hybrid car.
# 3: 2010 Toyota Prius MPG Commercial With Even More Colorful Nature-People. This one was rather a surprise, frankly, but it ranked as our third most popular post for June. Bottom Line: We still think the making-of-the-ad video (our # 5 post, below) is more interesting, but the ads continue to intrigue us.
# 4: 30 Days of the 2010 Toyota Prius: Day 1, First Impressions and 70 MPG. This one fell back a notch, but it's a perennial favorite by now: our first thoughts after a drive in the 2010 Prius. Not surprisingly, that "70 MPG" headline is a big lure too. Bottom Line: We can only quote our colleague Marty Padgett here: The 2010 Prius is significantly improved over the prior car in dozens of small ways. Along with exceptional fuel economy, it benefits from a taller, more airy cabin and improved driving feel. It's also a more upscale effort in general.
# 5: Behind the Prius Scenes: How They Made the Harmony Commercial. We've watched it several times now, and the "Harmony" ad for the 2010 Toyota Prius still makes us grin each time. Here's how they did it. Bottom Line: Toyota's fascinating video shows how the ad was digitally composed from individual shots using many, many people in colored leotards. Though as we wrote, We wonder how it feels to spend a day as one of a few hundred people paid to crouch on all fours in a green bodysuit while wearing a Burger King-like crown, covered in what looks like a sheepskin, waiting for the cue to rise in a continuous wave.
