Subaru XV/Crosstrek - SUV or not?

To me, the XV and Impreza look almost identical: https://maps.app.goo.gl/yXNb3XN3iXdWcxANA

Shouldn't the XV be listed as a hatchback and not a SUV? After all, we list the Outback as a wagon and not a SUV...

I haven't figured that one out either. It's advertised as a small SUV in the US.

It's classed as a small SUV by the US Environmental Protection Agency, and as a small station wagon by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. So even the US government can't agree what class it belongs in.

I would agree with listing it as hatchback.
That's the problem with many crossovers :smile:
I'll wait for additional comments before doing the change, in case some are against it.

This. As a Crosstrek owner myself, the California DMV classes it as a utility vehicle, so I agree with classifying it as an Off-road/SUV on IMCDb.

Subaru themselves also markets it as a crossover, as opposed to a normal hatchback.

to me the Crosstrek/XV , like the Outback and the Forester ( and i could add various competitors ... ) , are nothing else than hatches or wagons in heels.. :whistle:

But i will accept the way we'll list them , no matter which one it is

Hatchback on stilts, but still a hatchback to me.
