What was far, became near.
What was impassible, was crossed.
And the world became smaller.

In the Feb. 2010 Car and Driver there is a comparison of 8 compact SUV's. The G M C Terrain, Honda CRV, Mercury Mariner, Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Forester, Suzuki Grand Vitara, V W Tiguan, and the RAV4. Guess who wins? And, by a large margin, too!

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so!
