The big thing I haven't seen mentioned is money. How much is she willing to spend up front, and how much is she willing to spend for maintenance? The A3 and BMW will have significantly higher long term running costs. Escape and Outback will be lower, though if the Outback is an XT it might split the difference between the Germans and the Ford.

Based solely on personal car preferences, I'd go with either the Outback or the A3. I think the X1 is completely ridiculous (I ridicule every single one I see), and the Escape just lacks any excitement whatsoever. Since she's looking at the A3 and X1, I get the impression that curb appeal may play a part in the decision, in which case I'd say drop the Outback and go with the Audi. As long as the running costs aren't an issue.
