    ... if I lived in Colorado..

    This might cut into the Subaru market.

    Looks cool with the ski racks, .. but the advantage of the hatchback design is you can easily put your skis and board inside (as long as there's only 2 or 3 going) .. and retain the premium highway mpg.

    Hi RedylC94:
    It crawled up the slope with AWD. The FWD could not make it up the slope.
    Regarding torque at various speeds, few ever post that. It is a low power motor with a good deal of torque from 0 RPM. It would rip your arm off if you had your arm wrapped around the rear wheel at launch. It also provides enough traction to get the Prius AWD-e moving in snow up a 6 degree slope when the FWD variant just spins.

    IHTHs?
