I could not get less excited about another SUV.
Me either. I just don't see the point in them. Recently some relatives from the UK visited us and they hired a Volvo XC60 SUV. My 23 year old average height son and I rode in it with them and he sat in the back. He later commented that there was more room in the back of my 2004 Alfa GT than in the Volvo. I also suspect that there is more room in the trunk of the GT. With the seats folded down there is a large amount of space in the GT and even with them up it is quite sizeable as they were based on the 156 Sportwagon platform. Most SUVs are just jacked up sedans with a chunkier body. I would rather have a station wagon than an SUV, with the possible exception of a Range Rover Evoque which actually works brilliantly off road, unlike most others.
