    So, this is supposed to slot in under the Rogue Sport; however, the Juke was considered too small? How small will these "crossovers" go? I'm guessing the competition is the Trax and EcoSport, Soul (too big?), HR-V, CH-R, CX-3, etc. Can you call it a "crossover" if it is only available in FWD? I guess the marketing weenies at Nissan are going to (have to) use every trick in the book to get people into what seems like an already over-priced hatch/wagon that is just slightly taller than their Versa Hatch. The color thing is "cool" and is taking a page out of Scion book...not sure if that is good or bad.
