    For the price it had better be.

    Kind of odd to see a 2.0 liter engine in a car that big though. But they claim an 8.9 second 0-60. Can the Prius match that?

    Not even close!

    The Prius is pretty slow; I'd have to look it up but memory is the 0-60 run is 10 seconds or so. I know the top speed - about 108 mph, if you get a downhill stretch and have some time to let it build up speed!
