At 80MPH the Prius gets 1.5 - 2 times the mileage that the Focus gets, and you can easily fit 4 people in complete comfort, which you CAN'T do in a Focus. Each car has it's uses and advantages.

I had 4 other people in my focus this weekend. I had my seat back all the way because I'm pretty tall. Girlfriend in the front 3 others in the back. We done a 300ish km round trip. Everyone was comfortable. Car drove fine. I was doing 120km/hr on the highway and still got 8.6l/100km. But yeah I know what you're saying. I'm just sharing my personal experience.
