You may initially think, "What is the point of a small SUV".
But then you realise that many people travel to and from work alone so the need for a big car is not practical. There is much to be said for the upright seating position (we'll see about that in the Q3 and X1 though) and higher ground clearance of SUV's so why not have all the benefit and less of the disadvantage of high fuel consumption and tricky parking of a big SUV.
Why on earth you would want a Mini Crossover is beyond me though.
