It was fine when there was only one car in the market at the time. Then everyone else got involved.
If the M Class is a cross between a minivan and a SUV, what is the R Class?
In general I find most made up descriptions so relative and pointless, as every CUV/SUV will be a mix of a wagon, a van and a 4x4.
For me CUVs/SUVs look like big Pandas (Fiat).
