1) Our 2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI has more get-up-and-go than a Prius. (The 2011 VW Jetta TDI's 0-60 is 8.8 seconds; Prius V's 10.3, 2010 Prius 10.1.)

2) People won't see you coming and instantly assume you're a bad driver.

3) Doesn't emit toxic gas called Smug.

4) That HOV sticker no longer works for Prii so why bother?

5) Comparison Test: Jetta TDI vs. Prius V. 'Nuff said.

Any you'd like to add?
