    It's about slapping your needs and wants on a wall, grabbing a fistful of darts, cocking your arm back and trying to strike as many of your targets as possible. Prolechariots are cars for the rest of us, and Jonathan Schultz is driving them. Check your wallet, America.

    That Volkswagen even affords you such choices, though, is rare—and appreciable—in this segment. A capacious trunk, though, will be more valuable to some Prolecharians than a trick diff and a bucket-load of additional torque.
