    "guests"???

    Don't they mean "customers"? Or are we going to dump the car so fast as to appear as guests?

    This is very good pricing. My 2005 Prius was $33k. I would trade it in for one of these!

    Very good. Here's a price list for comparison

    Camry XLE 4 cylinder 6MM - $31,235 (+$1,930 for nav/backup camera)
    Camry Hybrid - $31,310
    Mercedes B200 5M - $29,900 (~$1,500 for the CVT)
    BMW 128i 6M - $35,800
    Lexus IS250 RWD 6M - $32,900
    Lexus ES350 - $42,150
    Audi A3 2.0TSI 6M - $32k
    Prius - $27,800 (Technology Package is $37,395)


    And as Presto said, our 2005 Prius Package "B" (everything except nav/bluetooth) was Cdn$34,xxx back in 2005. Our 2002 Camry XLE 4 cylinder Package "B" (leather, power pass seat, heated seats) was $32,395 MSRP.
