Interesting, they give an option to open only the glass, can't recall that on a modern wagon.
Why can't MB sell the W205 Estate here?

That is an awesome feature honestly. Although, I feel like the 3 series wagon used to look a little more slip. Maybe just those shots but it looks a little pudgy almost. Also can we please stop sculpting taillights.

BMW just started it... they aint gonna stop

if past is an indication, you will see all manuf. start sculpting their taillight (See the iPad screen, iDrive knobs for reference)

It does not look bad in person tho... there are many other areas where that are worse than the tails.

I saw far more Outbacks, and quite a few TSX wagons, with the occasional Allroad or E-class, rarely a 3er wagon of any generation.

1995 Audi S6 Avant 5-Speed



The overhangs on the early Audi avants were too big for my taste .... I guess they pushed the wheels more into the corners later ....

I enjoy the front but it seems...a bit off towards the back. Or maybe that's just me.

My 2006 E61 5 wagon had that too, it's been a feature on BMW wagons for a few generations.

Passat is so boring.

That 3 series wagon is hot. I'd drive one in 6MT! I'll take the gray.

My parents had one of these things: it was about 25' long (or so it seemed). Chocolate brown, my Mom hated that damn car.
