MSNBC - December 12, 2012

In Jan­u­ary, the North Amer­i­can Inter­na­tion­al Auto Show is expect­ed to be flood­ed with down­sized crossover-util­i­ty vehi­cles. These dis­plays will include the Hon­da Urban SUV Con­cept, Lin­coln MKC, and BMW X1. As fuel prices nudge up, small cars are rapid­ly gain­ing ground. B- and C- seg­ment mod­els have jumped from 13% of over­all US mod­els to 20% since 2005. The sub­com­pact and com­pact crossover nich­es fit nice­ly with the trend.
