Hybrid automobiles are extremely popular, but few individuals can say that the love affair lives on once they check out the sticker price. Toyota thinks that their new take on the Prius - the Prius C hatchback - will keep the fires burning. As reported by reports, the cost of the Prius C will fall under $19,000 before destination fees.

Good point, vivianaM. The prices stated in press conferences are seldom the prices we pay at the dealerships.

Good point vivianam, however, even by brining the final net price down, the car itself is much lower than its price point competitors with respect to features.  For the same price you can be getting a much nicer car.
