The second-generation Prius has some of the most plentiful and useful storage areas of any car. The center armrest bin is absolutely enormous, the cupholders are generously sized and fold away nicely, and that hidden center compartment is perfect for an iPod (and a left-over taco as I discovered last night). You also get that split-level glovebox, in addition to a pretty useful hatchback trunk.

With so much emphasis put on the Prius's fuel economy and whether or not it drives like a "real car," we sometimes forget that it's also a useful hatchback. A file cabinet fit snugly and did so without folding the rear seat backs (or removing the luggage cover thingy). Safer that way.
