So my sister is doing some car shopping for the near future, and is considering the 4 cars listed in the title. She asked my opinions, so I figured I'd throw it out there to this community for info/advice.

So far I've told her:
- the AWD for Audi/Subie is superior to the others, and this is a big factor for her, living in New York and travelling to VT for skiing.
- the A3 is probably smaller than the Outback and (related) is probably more fun to drive than the Outback.
- New Outback would be approx same price as pre-owned A3/X1 and thus probably more reliable and cheaper to maintain.
- I assume the Audi/BMW would be nicer inside, but that she could get more options for the same price on Subie/Ford...

What else would you add to the discussion? What else should she be thinking about? Any other cars she should consider? Thanks in advance for any info/help/advice!
