Bright red, nice looking compact.
Asked the valet if he had driven it. He said yeah, it was horrible. He was tall and said the Spark wasn't meant for anyone over six feet tall.
Saw a truckload of Audis too, but they were all in shrinkwrap.
Saw fields of new Fords and Jeeps, but I guess driving by the factories doesn't count.

Does the US get a new style S60/V60 wagon? I saw one, doesn't seem familiar.
S60 yes. V60 No.

A dwarf horse, maybe?

No wagon, right?
Saw a Hyundai i40 today, which is kind of like an upmarket Sonata for Europe. It was in Belgium (I think), and declared what it was in big letters on the side - likely a promotional vehicle.
3x each Prius and Lexus (all RX), all in Benelux.
I'm at the Ring now, who knows what I might see tomorrow.

Correct - no wagon. We get the XC60 instead.

No, unfortunately no V60 here in the states... More strangeness from Volvo who currently have zero non-XC wagons for sale here, a once hallmark of the brand back in the 80's and 90's.
Saw a few of them myself when I was there. I'd buy one.
Another Euro only model you might see is the V40.
They also have an XC-ized version which is pretty cool as well.
Both are based on the Ford Focus.

Check out that one row with all wagons, 7 of them.
More wagons in that pic than sedans, or any other bodystyle for that matter.
You should post in Mystery Car Pix, I can ID a bunch of those.

Friend just picked one up, our daughters are basically best buddies.
CR-V LX AWD, silver.

There was a red SL63 (I guess) buzzing around the Grand Prix part of the Ring this morning, sounded like a WWII fighter plane, monster. Also a newish M3 wagon was playing in the same area.

Meh, another crossover kind of thing. I've probably seen it and not noticed. I'd rather have the wagon. Unfortunately, I am not the trend
