Its been over a year since Ford announced they will stop selling cars (meaning traditional "sedan" styled vehicles... I'll always maintain CUVs are just wagons) in North America. Ford to stop selling every car in North America but the Mustang and Focus Active – TechCrunch In more recent news, Toyota was building a joint manufacturing facility with Mazda (not even sure how that works, maybe like the Toyota Subaru partnership or the Toyota Pontiac partnership where both companies sell the same vehicle in slightly different forms?) in Alabama. This facility was supposed to produce Corollas but Jalopnik is now reporting it will produce a new entry level CUV below the RAV4 in size and price. I don't know if that means Mazda is also cutting small sedan production numbers given this is a joint facility? Finally, Jalopnik is also reporting that the VW Beetle will cease production (again) to be replaced by the Tarek. A (you guessed it) small CUV. https://jalopnik.com/toyota-bows-to-suv-mania-1836275486 I have no personal opinion on this. I don't hate crossovers and I don't see the point in expending emotional energy raging against large corporations producing what the masses want. These vehicles are also not the unnecessary abominations that were the rage 20 years ago when everyone was buying full size truck-based SUVs. These cars (yes, they're cars) get way better fuel economy than any of us who drive our Audis, BMWs, Infinitis, etc.
