That's what I thought! But it looks a little bit too high off the ground for an SUV...

If you want to call the Volvo XC70 or Subaru Outback a "sport utility," I can't stop you. But would you call a Volvo V70 or Subaru Legacy anything but a station wagon? Unless Suzuki/Daewoo has raised the ride height and added AWD to the Nubira wagon, this new Suzuki is nothing more than a station wagon. But that's just me.

If they wanna call this an SUV, they better add AWD/4WD, a higher suspension, 16-17" wheels, and DEFINITLY a V6 engine. That's just my view...
