My guess would be that if there were still Legacy wagons available, that would be on the list as opposed to the Outback, but that she decided on the OB as the "next best" alternative... She's also considering the Audi Allroad...

Sounds like her needs are a good AWD vehicle that can get her to the mountains of VT, but since she lives in Manhattan she wants something a bit smaller than your typical SUV/crossover... She's always had a weakness for Audi's (we were an Audi family for awhile dad-A4, sis-Q5, me-S4) but is weighing the plusses and minuses of buying CPO Audi vs. new Subie...
The escape may be the best bet size wise as it has a small wheelbase and it is extreamely easy to park it tight spaces. All honesty our Escape has the V6 and though it is only the FWD model I have to remember to take it easy when I hit the gas because it I try to floor it from a dead stop I sphe tires! Which results in me getting bit@hed at by the wife for beating on her car!
