When at the red light people behind you sees that you are driving a Prius and moves to your right to over take you ( thinking that you are driving a slow accelerating car ), what you do is easy, push on your pwr mode button and watch how big their eyes get on your rear mirror when the light turns green. Other times, I love to see avg consumption around 60 mpg which she never disappoints me.
Does everything I need it to do.

I'm big, 6' 2". The car has plenty of head and leg room.
I commute 95 miles per day and the Prius handles well, winter, summer; rain, snow, sleet, and dry. It is light and nimble. Using the power button the car's transmission allows the car to accelerate with the engine RPM's held in the highest torque band of the engine. It is surprisingly quick. Turn off the power button and the car get mind blowing mileage; I am averaging between 50 and 55 mpg on my commutes. The heat and AC are excellent. The headlights are absolutely outstanding.
Average weekly fuel costs way down! :)

Anyone who enjoys commuting in comfort for a very reasonable price should seriously consider a Prius IV, heated leather seats, JBL sound system with audio port for MP3, AND a CD player, thermostatic temperture control, very low fuel consumption, need I say more?
