Seems there's a lot of good iron out there. I do almost wish there were more shared standards for fuel economy and safety which would allow automakers to more easily sell in more places. Playing the currency game is harder, though. If I'm being truthful, there's a lot of quirky stuff I'd be eager to sniff around. Euro cars of course are really neat, but heck, Tatas, Mahindras, Ssangyongs, even Ladas and such...some is trash, some is hidden gold. Just wish consumers could decide for themselves.
While we're at it, please, Americans, quit doing this SUV thing and fall in love with wagons as hard as I have for most of my life.
I like wagons a lot as well. I think wagons are coming back in the US and Canada. Car And Driver did an article on comparing an SUV Mercedes GLE 43 to a wagon Mercedes E400 4Matic. The wagon was better in every way except back seat space, and off road ability. The wagon even had more cargo volume as well and both cars were the same price.
Total US car sales in the first 6 months:
Out of those 110,030 were wagons (1.3%)
-Subaru Outback: 86,253
My favorite is the Volvo V90 in red, the normal one, not the lifted cross country. The normal wagon is a special order and so far in 2017 Volvo only sold 14 in the US; very rare.
