Now that they've expanded the Prius line into a wagon, I'm wondering how many other people would want them to integrate minivan-like sliding doors. I know it would add more weight, but having practically grown up in an 80s-era minivan, sliding rear doors are a killer feature. It makes it so much easier to load kids and cargo in, makes it easier to park in tight spaces, and guarantees you (I mean, uh, your kids) don't leave any door dings on neighboring cars. I'm sure anyone (or any company) using a Prius as a work/cargo vehicle would like that option as well. Since the v is being marketed as a kid and cargo hauler, it seems like a no-brainer option. Then again, the Mazda5 doesn't sell all that well, so maybe my fellow US buyers aren't that crazy about rear-sliding doors... Ford is looking at bringing their microvan over from Europe and making it a hybrid, but I'd rather buy a hybrid from Toyota, since they've already got such a glowing track record of making them.
