    Not even 20 ft3 in the wagon? Those are really disappointing numbers considering how large the 3 series has become. America's only Euroish-wagon-on-the-cheap, the Jetta, carries far more than this on a similar footprint.

    I have a 2007 328iT. This is a great car. Previously, I had two Saab 900s and an Avant. There is a theme here.... I like to put my road or mtn. bikes inside as: 1) they get stolen from roof racks and 2) I have a hearing problem and roof racks are noisy.

    But the Touring is getting smaller... or, I am getting older and stiffer. I am 6-3 and though the ergonomics are better on these three cars than most, it is still a small car and slung very low - lower than the sedan. My 93 old mom grumbles (rightly) about getting in such a low car.

    So I am looking for bigger and a little higher. But... I don't like SUVs. I drove a 2010 X3 and that is the only good handling SUV I have ever driven. The 2011 + X3 lost both its crisp handling and seems to now drive like a tall box - AKA, SUV.

    So this GT looks like one of the only cars that will work for me. The new Volvo S60 Wagon might work too. So good job BMW for bringing over a hatch despite Amuricans apparent fear and loathing ...
