    Not as nice as the departing sedan. I guess it'll be a hatchback for me.

    @EChid: I don't know why car-makers refuse to offer certain things that people would actually want. Brown diesel wagons? I can understand that. But other things seem to be straight up corporate laziness/aggressive beancounting. We can't offer this because it would cost money/require more work than just ignoring the consumers and all that.

      I would be interested to see what would happen if one manufacturer were to only offer a liftback format designed to look as much like a sedan as possible. Would sales be affected? Would people happily convert after having that "aww wow, that makes so much more sense" moment? Unfortunately, no one wants to take that risk (except Mazda with the original 6).

  • Bd2 The hybrid powertrain in the Sportage and Tucson are the ones to get.H/K should discontinue the base NA 2.5L powertrain and just build more of the hybrid.In the future, maybe offer a 2nd, more powerful hybrid (the hybrid 2.5) which will first arrive with the next Telluride/Palisade.Kia also needs to redo the front fascia for the Sportage's refresh.
  • The Oracle I say let the clunkers stay on the roads.
  • Jpolicke Twenty-three grand for a basket case? And it has '66 wheel covers and gas cap so who knows what else isn't original?
  • Scott Can't be a real 1965 Stang as all of those are nothing but a pile of rust that MIGHT be car shaped by now.
