1. I'm surprised to see the E-class on the list. My wife leased an E last year and they were nowhere to be found. She was looking for the e400 vs the e300, which probably had something to do with it, but still. There was ONE in inventory within 100 miles and it was an "executive demo" with <100 miles on it...outside of that we had 3 dealers quote us on the same car which was in a distribution center in Georgia.
2. Had no clue toyota still makes the yaris
3. For the life of me, i'll never understand who still buys new mitsubishi's in the US
4. How many decades has it been since the mini cooper had a facelift? Has it ever?

The rest seems pretty normal. The doom of the sedan is what you see on that list.

4 cylinder in a heavy Santa Fe is a No, No
I mean, you can get a 4 banger in an Explorer, the Kia Sorento, the Ford Edge, Mazda CX-9, among I'm sure others. You can get a 4 cylinder in a Silverado now. It's not like they only make 115 HP anymore. These 4 bangers are boosted to the stars, and make the same power V6's were making

This, and the start/stop is terribly annoying on the 19's. They got rid of the LWB (Long Wheel Base) 3rd row one we've been buying for the last 4yrs in anticipation of Palisade. We usually buy my brothers demo (he works for H Corp) so we get great deals, and trade our prior year in to the dealer.
Kinda sad our gravy train dried up. My wife drove his 19 with a 4cyl and she did not like it. Guess we're keeping our 18 6cyl.

The other issue arising with the Santa Fe is the hesitation, with their trans/dual clutch setups, it's actually why I traded my 2016 Tucson back in. Months of service visits, brothers corp engineer even took it for a weekend to try and help, no such luck, even after a trans ecu reflash/update.

The positives on the new Santa Fe, the interior (seats) are really comfy, don't care for the tablet style infotainment change.
