There’s still another compact German wagon available. Seems like everyone forgets the Clubman exists. It’s also hideously overpriced like every other Mini and at it’s price you might as well get a C-class wagon if you live in Canada or another country that gets it or a Regal Tour-X if you live in the States. So basically this post is useless. That’s good.
And for the Alltrack folks (apparently they exist even if I see like 1 Alltrack for every 20 Sportwagens I see), there’s the Countryman, a car I’m quite ashamed to admit that I like.
