"Toyota Isn't Quitting on the Prius Just Yet"--Jalopnik

Who said Toyota was quitting on the Prius?!

Apparently Toyota has sold fewer and fewer of their iconic hybrid for six years straight, with people preferring hybrid versions of conventional cars. Curiously, Ford sold more Fusion hybrids than Toyota sold Prii, and then handed sales back to Toyota.

The 2020 Prius Prime is supposed to finally get a fifth seat.

Why did it only have four?!

My 1987 Honda Prelude Si had five seats, but I once had a five year-old mention that he did not have legroom.

I believe that it was the fourth generation, 1992 - 1996 that only had two seats in the back. I am sure that was more comfortable, and the fifth seat was pretty useless, but why would a modern Prius have the same seating arrangement as a 1994 Prelude?

I once had a 6'4" friend in one back seat, a 6'6" or 6'7" friend in the other, a girl up front, and a girl sandwiched in the back.

We kept bottoming out and the taller friend had his legs between the front seat and resting on the parking brake.

Was the Prius ever in any real trouble?
