We said it on Wednesday, and we’ll say it again:High performance station wagonsare pretty much the best idea ever. However, there is a problem with them: They’re seldom offered to U.S. buyers. Yes, we know, they’d sell even worse than non-hot rodwagons(which is saying something), but ifCadillacandMercedes-Benzare making it work (or at least trying to), what’s stoppingAudiandBMW?

In any case,DrivehostChris Harrisrecently pitted the latestAudiRS6 Avantagainst the stylish (if deceptively-named)Mercedes-BenzCLS63 AMG Shooting Brake. Both feature rambunctioustwin-turbo V8sunder their hoods, and both have room for five people and quite a lot of stuff. However, they are different enough to have two distinct characters. And they’re different enough forChristo be able to pick the one he’d rather have.
