I think the part I bolded is what is lost on some people here. It really boils down to options. Several people get all up in arms with the thought of an SUV and bring out the pitchforks and torches to burn the fuel sucking heathens at the stake. People need to realize that in America, like it or not, there will be those individuals that will buy those bigger cars because they can, not necessarily because they need it. Giving them options like a compact SUV that gives them the room they think, or actually need, over a gigantic SUV while netting better FE is a good thing in my book. It almost gets tiring to see the debates over how anyone that drives anything less than an ultra tiny subcompact must hate the planet and it looks like the whole Ford vs. Chevy debates you see on the "mullet forums". The percentage of the populace that is willing to drive tiny FE cars is smaller than those that want larger more comfortable cars. Offering them something that they want that actually gets good FE accomplishes in my mind what the spirit of this forum is about... Improving FE. Personally I'd love a great diesel wagon but I'm in the minority, just like most of the people who actually participate on these forums.
