Audis just keep getting uglier and uglier and uglier.

There's more than one allroad, both A4 and A6 comes in Allroad trim.

Not in the US, Finn.

The third-generation A6 Allroad is being launched in Europe, with no U.S. plans in sight.

You got the old one, so maybe you will be lucky or Audi thinks the americuns can't figure out, that they are different when they look that much alike.

You can't get an exact match, size wise. The Q7 is bigger, the Disco far taller, etc. Then there's price. For example, an RRS has an MSRP about 50% more than the ML. We're pretty aware of what's available and do a pretty comprehensive comparison in price vs. benefits each lease cycle. This cycle Rover seems to really be pushing the Evoque so residuals are being highly subsidized and the lease cost is about 20-25% less on the Evoque vs. the ML. We have until August so things might well change between now and then. There's that new Infiniti, the JX, that while fugly drives fairly nicely and also has a cost significantly less than the ML.

My comment was more or less about comparing cars in the same segment and not in a different one.

The RRS is expensive, but it needs to be, with what they want for the smaller versions.

Q7 is considered in the full size category by some, like the GL, as an example but I've seen it in mid-size too. It's clearly bigger than the ML. The ML is considered mid-sized, like the Lexus RX, Acura MDX, Volvo XC90, Infiniti JX. Like I said, I'm pretty cognizant of the options in that category.

The RRS was priced as it is now several years ago when I had my LR3 and there was no LR2 at the time and they had stopped making that little guy. The RRS is just the Disco with a different body style and a little less spartan interior.

X5, Q7 and ML are similarly priced here and most tests compare them as direct competitors, with Cayenne and Range Rovers being the luxury option and land cruiser, XC90 being cheaper.

Land Cruise is much bigger; that's a full size ride.

Yes, XC90 is less money but it's in the mid-size luxury SUV in N. America.

I went to test out an ML350 this morning after being partially inspired by this thread. I loved it. It honestly beats the pants of the BMW X5 xDrive 35i. I'd never delude myself into thinking an SUV handles well (and neither do really compared to a proper car), but I had very few complaints and the interior was great.

Piob. Not sure why you aren't just looking at an E wagon. Better dynamics, same space. Do you need the off-road capability? I am on my mobile so can't see the original post easily.
post #7857 of 14790

this thread has sure picked up. You guys with your jobs and income make me jealous, it seems so far off being able to justifiably afford a decent new car. Must be nice having to decide between the three German marques instead of deciding between which sub-5000$ econobox suits you haha.

How old are you, bro?

Couple things. The height of the SUV is nice, and yeah due to where we live, I prefer her in something that can handle extreme weather and light off roading. There is also the stigma wagons have in the US and Canada.

its a shame for that stigma. I'd love one if I had a reason to own a car.
