Probably the Prius C was more intended to remain compliant to certain rules in markets where a size-based tax bracket is enforced, or other countries such as Ecuador where hybrid fiscal incentives started allowing anything to benefit (thus becoming more of an excuse to import landyachts relying on the tax break as an indulgence) until a 1.5L displacement limit for the incentive got implemented and nearly erradicated the hybrid offers there. Well, the same drivetrain could still be stuck into the Yaris anyway, at least where in won't be phased out so soon...
