Shrinking Suv

I'll take mine with a wagon.

Being a guy who prefers smaller cars, I was intrigued by the new VW Tiguan. I love the utility of hatchbacks and wagons and was hoping that this mini SUV would offer something extra over a Rabbit or a Jetta wagon. I was surprise to see how limited the cargo space was, and the overall interior space was only a touch better. One feature I did appreciate, however, was the abundance of storage pockets and assorted little cubbies to hold my ever-growing collection of electronics. Cellphones, iPods, chargers, toll tickets, beverages, or whatever you need with you during your driveā€”the Tiguan offers plenty of spots to stow them away. ;That's just not enough to make me want to buy one.

They seem like an upscale CRV to me. With a TDI and 30+ mpg combo, they might appeal...I don't want a 21 mpg car, if it's that small.
