Yup. Also for europe Citroen C4 Grand Picasso, VW Sharan, etc.

The space in the US market for these is taken by Rav4, CRV etc.

I honestly think that because this DOESN'T look anything like a mini-minivan and 100% like a crossover that it would be a brilliant way to add incremental volume beyond the Equinox and I think it would handily outsell the truly terrible Trax.

I'd also include the Fiat 500L? In some ways, an exceeding practical vehicle (and certainly visbility would never been an issue!), but there was a clowish appearance that I think betrayed it.

What? This is a much longer and bigger vehicle than the Trax AND Equinox. I don't think it would be out of place in the USA, but I can't see it finding many buyers either. A 3-row Blazer or GMC Acadia would would eat up any market for this car.


Also, it's made in China, so importing it to the US would likely be more trouble than it's worth.

I said NOTHING about this being the same size as a Trax. I said it would improve incremental sales. Don't put words in my mouth.

The Fiat is a size class and engine size smaller than the vehicles I mentioned.
