Car comparison

So, here's a grid of the cars I'm looking at. Requirement: standard transmission, AWD wagon.

Why is the Audi S4 do damned heavy?

(This isn't really my purchase list - I can't afford half of these new, and I'm not a big fan of Subarus, so my hope right now is a 2000-2005 used S4 wagon)

Are you going to be benching your car? Because if you can lift 3000lbs, an extra 900 shouldn't really make that much of a difference.

I vote you get a Beemer!

Naw, but car weight makes a big difference to how zippy the car is, and efficient it is.
