Talk about rewriting history! According to the first two paragraphs, the quashqai invented the style, all before the quashqai were cut down full size SUV's. Ignoring the fact the Tiguan predates the Quashqai and the RAV 4 predates the Tig (We had one in 2000, and again in 2004!)
The original Toyota Rav4 was a small 4x4 (and a 'orrible dated thing too, like most of the asian offerings right up until the mid-2000s), a slightly different class to the recent modern "SUV" segment. If you looks at the Rav4, CRV etc now they are really nice looking things and much bigger than their original namesakes.
