- M Sport Package, a performance car, hydraulic steering
- It's a wagon (I dislike wagon) but disguising as a SUV, so cool
- 8sp AT and xDrive
- The trunk is low enough for easy loading and unloading, and for my dog to jump in
- Chassis is high enough for winter driving on snow
- It's turbo diesel, and it can do 40+mpg (gasoline is so expensive here in the UK)
Maybe you can wait until the diesel comes over to NA next year.
BTW, who uses the parking brake anyway
, just press the Engine Stop button with the 8AT gearbox.
