I'm still not sure about the usefulness of an SUV as compared to the regular sedan, as the sedan probably cost less (lower bling markup), has better handling, probably weighs less, has more room overall, is easier to get into and out of, probably gets better gas mileage, all else being equal.
To me, the station wagon version, as with that version of the 159 based on the sedan, is the most desirable setup. We really liked the 159 wagons we saw overseas, and we also like the Audi wagons we see here in the States.
Just my rant for the day. Off to do a nice drive in the 91S around Puget Sound, with ferry ride back to Seattle, to visit a couple of fav restaurants to eat yummy food and see our friends who own the restaurants.
We will see no Stelvios, and most likely no Giulias either, alas. Just not that many here yet, esp where we are going, although we were shocked that on our drive through eastern Oregon, we came across a new Giulia just south of Athena, Oregon where Veronica lives, out in the wheat field country. Actually shocked, lol.
