I just got back from the UK, where I was able to rent a BMW 520D Station Wagon for a few days. Thats a 2.0 Turbo with an auto box
We covered nearly 700 miles, with four adults and full trunk of luggage. Got 38US mpg from it. Could have done better but the right foot got heavier and heavier.

Makes me wish we could get that level of comfort, performance and economy here in the USA.......

Aside from the automatic, I would LOVE one of those. And to get that engine in a wagon that isn't AWD I'd even live with the automatic.
