2013 Audi All-Road
We've never really understood the North American penchant for SUV's. One in ten thousand are actually used like they were intended to be used, and because of that they've become less and less capable as time has gone by as consumers don't seem to really care whether they're capable or not, but rather only care how big they are. The wagon always seemed to us to be the more practical choice, as they seat 5 comfortably and have nearly the same amount of cargo space for that Costco shopping trip...and you don't have to settle for having the handling of a wet sponge as you are still driving a car. Audi hasn't given up on North America yet, and in 2013 they're re-introducing the All-Road, a wagon equipped with the legendary quattro all wheel drive, trim that can take some abuse, and an adjustable ride height for your off-road or inclement weather needs. Pricing is still TBD, but expect it late summer 2012 as a 2013 model.
