    A thousand points of patent: that’s the wordspeak on Toyota’s press material for the Third-Gen 2010 Prius, which benefits from a massive re-jig, regardless of what the silhouette would have you think. Eco-savvy plastique, available solar-powered ventilation systems, and blue hue badges may be enough to snag the tree-huggers, but if you can’t put your Acai energy smoothie in the cup receptacle, then what exactly was the point? The sharpened stick of that point has been made even more ouchie, with the arrival of the Honda Insight, compete with a paltry MSRP. The wallet dent on this week’s Prius tester is $27,500 (prices shown do not include freight, taxes, regional or promotional incentives.) Should a two-mode hybrid be in your future? As far as I’m concerned, definitely maybe. Let’s see what the cupholders say:

    I own a '05 package 6 Prius with 123K on it at present. Aside from HID bulbs and a water pump replacement for a drip, it has been a perfect car. I will absolutely replace it with a Gen III package V with AT when the time is right, likely when the '11 model year is available. I have owned a ton of cars and just purchased a '10 MBZ E couple last week. I still love my Prius and will get another one.
