While I agree that the concept of payback and so-called hybrid premium is bogus (like that diesel engine premium), I personally do not think that a digital dash and the @##$$%% touch screen information center is all that wonderful.
The fact that I can get a midsized car that is a hatchback PLUS delivers great MPGs and is a 'clean-car', now THAT is something!!
(quick everyone go to Kelley or Edmunds and find a midsize hatchback, let alone one with any toys or great mileage.....)
