That's exactly it, and not making any negative value judgments either. Bigger vehicles (interiors esp) for bigger people. It makes sense.
Funny thing, I once had a co-worker who was big (maybe 6'6" 300+), he for some reason loved the Mazda 5, it fit him but wasn't a huge truck or big boat.

That's a Mazda3 stretched up and out, so I guess it has lots of room for passengers.
I wish it got some JDM features that aren't available here - AWD, power sliding doors, middle bench, etc. Heck, USA doesn't even get a Navi option any more. They're just not trying to market that model.
And to get back on track...don't think I have ever seen an ad for the Mazda5, either.

Same here, I don't recall a single ad for it. I remember the first time I saw one, wasnt even sure what it was.

There is nothing like the comfort and stretch-out room you get from a big vehicle with a roomy interior. Unfortunately, eventually you always have to park it.

#6562 of 7128 Infiniti is responsible, Recyles

Infiniti is re-running last year's commercial where a guy with a BMW is throwing snowballs at the guy with an Infiniti. Guy in Infiniti responds by making a snowball, rolling it down hill and then of course it keeps rolling getting bigger and finally so huge that it smashes into the parked BMW on a street some where and sweeps it away. Silly. Kids probably love this commercial.

New Infiniti commercial for J suv has a family picking up grandpa. Driving in the snow grandpa says he hopes they make it for the 40-year tradition. Son, or son-in law, says yes they will make it. It being a lodge house, or their luxurious 2nd house in the hills/mountains, where grandpa hangs an ornament on a string/tree. Little boy is awed at Christmas lights turning on. Touching.

Saw that, too. I think it's actually kinda clever, though they need to update it and replace the car with an Audi.

Just noticed this Benz ad, I think it's new:
Tire squeal is a bit childish but that's the red car in the naughty line.
I guess you buy a white one for the wife, a red one for the mistress? Is that the message here?
