    It doesn't look anything like a CUV to me. It looks more like a Model S on super high suspension:

    I may just be blind to what they're trying to do. To me a SUV is something with high ground clearance, skid plates, 4WD, possibly mud tires. If you can't go off-roading, then what's the point? The whole "crossover" or CUV thing has long been a mystery to me. Isn't that just the currently-fashionable name for something like a station wagon or a minivan?

    When I look at the DBX, I see pony car. Mustang, Camaro, Challenger.

    Not exactly. It's taller and easier to load than a station wagon and smaller than a minivan. In a lot of ways it's a compromise between the two. It's popular because it fits a niche better than the alternatives (not everybody needs the room of a minivan and yet finds a CUV much more practical than a wagon).

    I totally agree. IMO it bears no resemblance to a CUV in appearance or function.
