    Maybe parents with one kid, or if the kids are old enough to ride without car seats.

    Good thing they didn't get Consumers Reports feed back. After reading CR report I was wondering if I was driving the same car.

    There are LATCH attachments for two car seats in the back, but not room for an adult as well.

    Right, its two car seats and no one else in the back, or a car seat and maybe two people, depending on their size.

    My C wont't work for my cousins with their two car seats and Grandma.

    A car seat plus two adults in the back would be *very* tight, but the seat plus two kids who are old enough to use regular seatbelts would probably work.

    The Prius C can be considered a family vehicle. I own both the Prius C and Sienna. I drive the Prius C to work (40 miles each way without expressways) and run errands. Additionally, I can comfortably fit two family members with me in this vehicle. My wife uses the Sienna to drive a few miles to work and we use it to take family all over, etc. So the Prius C is a perfect fit to hold costs down and still function in a family setting.
