This is essentially a Camry station wagon. It has a lower center of gravity than SUV's. Except for the AWD option it lacks the characteristics of SUV's.

Without even reading the article, it's called a crossover. Pretty common these days.

It is a sissy mommymobile. Soccer moms and pussywhipped daddies will buy the target demographic.

With the V6 and AWD this is no sissy car. It has 20 inch wheels and good power. Granted it is more geared to families and passenger comfort than many SUV's. The lower step in is good if children or older people are being transported.
Different strokes for different folks.

My neighbor has one. Seems to be a nice car. I just think it's homely looking.

When the commercials are trying so hard to convince you that you'll be cool if you have one of these, that should tell you it's a loser mobile. (Ford Flex did the same thing.)
