I actually think it would look pretty good if they just did the merge just behind the driver's door and skipped the back seat. Sure is practical from a running errands point of view, but looks.... well...

I have always wanted to take a mid 90s bonneville remove the trunk lid and cut the back out then enclosing the front to make a bonne-camino, but that thing above is horrible.

Now if they would just do the smart thing and rear-end another car with the prius and use the prius drivetrain..... they'd all improve mileage!
