In this short video. You see why 90% of people who are getting an SUV could be getting a wagon instead.
Unless riding high makes them "feel safe" for some reason...
(a friend of mine looking for a car just tole me that last week)
This is as much room as a family of 4 will ever need.
You could even sleep in it! This could be the perfect camping car.
Again, our Buick regal Tour-X will be a raised up version of this, similar to the Subaru Outback.
I guess US regulations will consider it an SUV, or "light truck" once it is raised up.
Just like Mercedes did with the US GLA. (The European version is obviously lower)
And Audi with the Q3.
Being categorized as a light truck allows for easier/cheaper regulations in the US. Which equals to more profits.
That is probably why we will not be getting the regular wagon version.
And also probably why the gorgeous Volvo V90 wagon is only available in the US as the raised up Cross Country version (regular V90 is special order only in the US. But still around $6000 less)
And also, why they are pushing SUVs so much in general.
