Depends on your definition of rare.

As a general rule of thumb, only 5% of cars sold in the US are manuals (perhaps the number is slightly [7-10%] higher for cars like BMW and lower [1-2%] for cars like Chevy) and only 5% are wagons. So, your car is 5% of 5%.

I'm not sure what the AWD to RWD ratio is for BMW, but I suspect that the RWD far outsells the AWD - the wagon is available in both versions.
