CUVs are basically tall wagons.. and I'm OK with that. The driving position is high, the sightlines are good, the economy is reasonable and the cargo utility is adequate for someone not in need of a real truck. They aren't nearly as roll-over prone as body-on-frame SUVs, they're much safer (for any given size category) and they're nicer to drive. I don't see why anyone would hate that.

CUVs are popular all over the world, BTW.. not just in the US.

An "off-road" course or roller ramps at a training are not "off-road". There aren't any Subarus that could make it over a log blocking an out-of-service logging road, they certainly aren't going 'off-road' like a trail-rated Jeep.
