I see...
These type of cars nowadays are rated more and more as not done in village 
and city centers.
Especially by the left winged political people.
These cars are so big and the streets are so small, that a parked SUV or 
pick up is seen as an obstacle. Also the fuel consumption of these type of 
cars is seen as negative.
Some city councils try to ban these type of cars from city centers, but up 
to now unsuccesfully.
