    Our 2012 v (wagon) and our 2010 liftback are both running on Michelin Defenders...so it's definitely not the tires.

    I'm convinced the 200+ pounds of extra weight the v lugs around is the main instigator. However, I think aerodynamics has a minor role to play as well. If you look under under both vehicles, the v has fewer undercarriage panels than the liftback.

    A combination of sheer size and a great deal by way of dealer unfamiliarity did it for me. If I could have found a standard lift back with the advanced tech package at a good price, I might have settled for less room - but I'm very, very glad to have the extra space. The fact that I only had to look for pictures with moonroofs made it easier to find a mislabeled (and hence underpriced) v. I found a lot of standard fives with an unadvertised ATP, but the sweet spot was finding a v 'two' with ATP.
