Like another said, check the Martix also look at the Element.
The E with a 5 speed is a runner and has TONS, I mean TONS of room inside, handles like a Civic and goes great in the snow with the real time 4WD. 23-25 MPG ain't bad either. Best part is with the cloth-free interior, you just wipe out the snow/slush/salt/mud or whatever else gets inside and it's clean as the day you bought it.
Well....based on your recommendation, I had the wife check out the Element as a replacement for her RAV4. She wasn't crazy about the look but as soon as she saw the interior room and drove it she was hooked and bought it right away.
She had the dealer add roof racks and a tow hitch for her bike rack. This morning she left with my youngest son for a trip to the beach with bikes in tow and our sea kayak on top. She loves the amount of crap you can throw in this vehicle.
