I Drive a Compact Crossover

And I’m not ashamed. I love low-slung sports cars, and rugged utility vehicles, but in the “real world” - especially when spending nearly 2 hours a day commuting - this vehicle is superior.

It’s a tall, front-wheel-drive hatchback that shares its platform with the Opel Corsa D, Fiat Doblo, Argo, 500L and 500X, and a few others. It wears a Jeep suit. I don’t care if it’s not a “Real Jeep.” It serves our purposes and has enough room for my wife, our dogs, and me. It averages 27 mpg and the roofs come out. It also desperately needs a baff.
