As with many Prius fans, I have read Toyota's press release, watched their video and read and watched countless "reviews." I am very disappointed that Toyota missed an opportunity to reach the magic number of 60 MPG. If they would have forgone a major increase in power, and used smaller/lighter tires, the 5th Gen. Prius would have certainly reached or passed 60 MPG. You can see various Prius grades the drop from 57 MPG to 49 MPG, impacted by AWD, weight and other factors. I can't understand why Toyota didn't recognize the OBVIOUS- Prius customers' top desire is high mileage and fuel efficiency. 60 MPG would have attracted Prius aficionados and brought in new customers. 60 MPG would have offered a marketing bonanza.
