Botond I agree with you. I think what is happening is everyone (meaning car manufactures and people buying cars) is trying to be "different". Kind of like trying to keep up with the proverbial Jones. So car manufactures are coming out with these weird models. In addition Americans in general have always liked large cars and probably always will. Our roads and parking places allow for large vehicles unlike Europe which has tiny city streets and tight parking places. Unfortunately our favorite European manufacture is continuing to bow to the American taste (it all started with cup holders) and making these behemoths.
