I traded my 2014 BMW 335i M Spot with all the options for this car, so needless to say, I had high expectations. Although I do miss my BMW, it's not because of any shortcomings in my Alltrack. I love the utility, space and comfort. The engine and 6-speed manual is a smooth, super fun combo, and with the APR I tune on top of that, it's just that much better. No wheel spin with AWD, Great interior materials and ergonomics. I especially like the MIB II infotainment with Apple CarPlay, which works almost flawlessly. I had windows tinted all the way around, including sunroof and UV film on the windshield, so the fierce Texas sun is not a deterrent. There are so many safety features I can't remember them all but the auto emergency braking (front and rear) area great features. Love my car and glad to have one of the few and last station wagons AND manual transmissions to be found on the market.
