I think the NYT may have it wrong.

Several years ago the U.S. government pushed auto makers to build cars with bumpers that were higher off the ground.i.e. Crossovers, SUVs, etc.

The reason being the bumpers were too low on a regular car and crashed tests showed occupants getting severely injured.

Now the trend is the lower the bumers of the SUVs down so they meet the bumper of cars.

Also, wagons have some of the poorest resale values. No one wants them.
