    Am writing this on a road trip in Canada. Have owned several Audi wagons and -- you're right -- they are great cars, especially this latest AllRoad. Versatile and fun to drive. So why am I driving a BMW Sportswagon? Because Audi no longer offers the Avant/AllRoad in a manual. transmission. Goodbye, Audi. Hello, BMW.

    For $7-8k less, I'll stick with my Q5. OK, so it doesn't have the panache of a wagon, but as a utility, it is the wiser choice.

    Suggesting you don't know why people don't choose the wagon is disingenuous or a literary device.
    People don't choose a wagon because they want to sit higher. They also may want to have something that can tow more. Wagons have neither.
