But, I guess they are marketing the niche product to fools like me who will pay the price premium.
I disagree, i think it *IS* a relevant comparsion...especially since the X1, X3, Q5 etc. are all functionally equivalent as far as luxury, size, AWD, etc....

The wagon just sits lower and handles a little better, but if you haven't driven one, the X3 is no slouch in the handling dept, it is quite good for what it is.
