Kristen Lee already covered this on Jalopnik, but I felt like commenting on it myself.

Specifically, part of one sentence, from their press release, my emphasis:

The UX measures 4,495mm long, 1,520mm high and 1,840mm wide and has a 2,640mm wheelbase.

1520 mm is 59.8 inches.

That’s... not a crossover.

I don’t care if it has a high beltline, black cladding, and chunky styling meant to evoke “toughness”, it’s under 60" tall. That’s a compact hatchback, not a crossover.

Edit: Hahahaha, this line.

For the driver, a reduced distance between the hip and heel points gives the feel of driving a hatchback rather than an SUV-type vehicle.

THAT’S BECAUSE IT IS A HATCHBACK RATHER THAN AN SUV-TYPE VEHICLE YOU FUCKS
