Size and look is similar to a Mazda 5. If going to go hybrid, it seems like a good size of function and form.
Ford was supposed to bring the C-Max (twin-ish of Mazda 5) to the US in traditional gas and hybrid and now that has been reduced to hybrid only and delayed.

Prius jokes got old immediately after South Park aired the classic episode "Smug Alert." That was in 2006.

But the Prius V doesn't have a third row of seats or sliding doors.
