I think the "trend" you speak of has been provoked by the
new M-class Mercedes, which is somewhat different from the
Legacy Outback/Allroad idea in execution.
Talking about the M-class, it seems all set to eat other
manufacturers' lunch ... but for the fact that Mercedes
doesn't seem to be able to make enough (sold out for the
next 12-14 months!). I saw one up close outside Pixar
a few days ago, and I must say I was quite impressed: the
first vehicle in its class that I would consider owning ..
