In the UK the Opel (Vauxhall) Mokka is almost exclusively purchased by elderly people. They find the high seats much easier for entry/exit purposes. The same goes for many vehicles of the SUV/Minivan (MPV) style.

Not what the maker intended, but they don't care if sales are steady. Thanks be to Motabilty schemes and the Disability Living Allowance.

that Toyota C-hr looks terrible. like some sort of mutant cross between a pontiac aztec and a nissan juke.

and that opel sort of looks like an older model (2012-2015) honda cr-v...which is not a bad thing. basic car and very good for what it is.

my dad has a 2012 cr-v and his main compliment is actually about the getting in and out of it. not a bad car to drive though to be honest.

so the opel is the winner of this lot (not really doing comparisons though are we?).

If you consider the proposed height of the Alfa, that must be the biggest Alfa badge in history. It'll be interesting to see if it looks as good when it's actually built.

We get the Opel/Vauxhall here in North America as the Chevrolet Trax.

Where did the name SUV or Sports Utility Vehicle come from to describe a slightly raised hatch back or estate car?

To me an SUV, if I had never seen one could be a Holden or Ford ute so popular in Australia with a V8 under the hood and tyres bigger that found on F1 car, or a VW caddy with the under pinnings of a Golf GTi or a slightly detuned Transit Supervan. In other words a utility vehicle that was quicker than your average van or pick up that could still be used to carry goods or used for services.

Instead we get a raised hatch back to carry passengers.
