    Correct. Considerably more involving than even a CTR.

    The Fit destroys all competition. Thread would have ended in 2 posts if we brought that up.

    I am saying you don't need more ground clearance than a Honda Fit for the "ultimate Calgary car". Anyone who says e64 is too low is imagining problems that don't exist. Cough @killramos cough.

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.

    My stock ass C scraped getting in and out of parking lots, or from alleys to street in the summer, as did my 2. As did my Fit back in the day. Add a bit of snow and ice that never gets plowed and shit gets annoying quick. E has a longer wheelbase compounding the issue.

    My mustang scraped around everywhere the winter I drove it.

    I dunno about you guys, but that sound hurts my soul and would bother me every god damned day.

    The polestar is awesome, and likely better in the winter than the E63 wagon, but it’s objectively worse in every other respect (except cost I guess, it’s probably 20k cheaper... but it’s easily 20k less car imo). No way I’d own that over an e63.

    I appreciate the replies.

    Trackhawk is too much power and I'd be wary about dropping that much on an FCA product. The SRT version is something I've contemplated for awhile but I think there's no way to make it handle the way I would want. Might be wrong about that since I haven't driven one yet.
    Too much power shouldn't be an issue, ours is the daily driver for the wife and we have the car seats in it full time. You can also hit the "Eco" button which de-tunes it to about the power of an SRT if you're really worried. With that being said, they still weigh 5400lbs so 700hp isn't crazy once it's rolling for acceleration, it's mostly off the line where you really feel the power but most people aren't launching from every light. Regarding suspension, having the adjust-ability between modes is great depending on how you want to drive. As mentioned previously I'd highly recommend test driving one especially if you want something as a year round all purpose daily.

    Speaking of E63's, the Jeep ran a buddies 2014 and the big SUV would jump 2-3 car lengths from a dig everytime. Although the Merc would slowly reel the Jeep in, it was still half a car ahead at ~240-250.

    For the Polestar V60, are you guys talking about the old body style or new one? I actually didn't know they had a Polestar V60 for the latest generation, looks like it came out in 2020. 0-60 in 4.4 and 1/4 mile @12.9 with 415hp. That's decent!

    E63S current generation also have air suspension where you can easily adjust ride height as well to clear bad shit. It's second nature to me now. Curbs, press button. Shit ton of uncleared snow? press button.

    Air suspension FTW.
