OK. The Gen3 Prius is huge--relatively speaking. It's a full blown mid-size car that will seat five w/luggage. I know this because we hauled three adults, two kids and their luggage from the airport in it. Still managed way over 40mpg. With one person driving on the highway it easily gets 50+. It also has never seen the inside of a shop except for oil changes. Same for the Gen2 we traded in. 90k miles, NO issues except flawless, if sedate, performance and super gas mileage. The perfect commuter/around town car. I will be honest and admit I'd rather drive my Passat GLX 4Motion wagon on long highway trips though.

My vote goes to the VW beetle commercial.

Re: Superbowl Ad - BMW Diesel

I have 20,000 miles on my 335diesel. 37 mpg freeway with my foot in it and 30mpg combined. But what I really love about it is the 425 ft. Lbs. of torque it has. 425 ft. Lbs!! It's a rocket.
