To us, the Sportback, due for an official unveiling at tomorrow's Detroit Auto Show, most closely resembles the BMW X6, just a fair bit shorter. Details are still slim, but expect this to preview a production Audi A7 for some point in the future. That vehicle will rival the BMW X6, Mercedes CLS, R-Class and a swift kick in the pants when it eventually goes on sale. [Fourtitude via Autoblog]

Blame it all on the ridiculous CAFE Requirements here in the States. Again, until we reform the fuel economy standards, there will be two different targets, one for cars, and one for trucks. This will be classified as a Truck, and will only have to achieve a lower standard, as well as not get hit with a Gas Guzzler charge that only cars seem to be assessed with.

This is also the main reason why we don't see more Wagons instead of these crossovers. This would be one of the first things that should be changed with the new administration, but there is so many things that need to be changed, where to start?
