Fuck the crossovers

Still doing research on cars, for two adults and two in child seats, and will last until the oldest is maybe thirteen.  Crossovers and SUVs are the N American default, ergo bloated and vulgar.  Thing is, that sells, so modest wagons do not.  There are very few under $30K CAD.  What few there are, are often too close to hatchbacks.

Nissan Versa Note SV $19K

Hyundai Elantra GT $21K cash

Ford Focus SE Hatch $22K

KIA Soul LX $22K

KIA Forte 5 LX+ $22.5K

Scion XB 4A $23K

Mazda3 GX $25K

KIA Rondo LX Value AT $25.5K

Subaru Impreza 2.0i 5-door AWD $25.5K

Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback SE - $26K

Scion iM?

  1. Whoa, you are crossing over to the dark side (of car ownership). Although, to be honest, I think it'd be hell with kids and no car unless you live in Europe or Asia.

    1. To my chagrin. It's just about insupportable here not to have one.
