Performance Station Wagons You May Not Be Aware Of
We understand that the average car buyer generally isn't a fan of wagons. They look kind of funny and have a reputation as being designed for boring suburban families.
The reality is these types of vehicles aren't getting a fair shake. Most of them drive like a sedan, come with all of the creature comforts we've come to expect from our vehicles and have a remarkable amount of versatility with big trunks and lots of passenger space.
And in certain instances, station wagons can be downright luxurious and even sporty. Case in point are these six wagons we've highlighted in the following gallery, several of which you may not even know exist. These are sleek, very fun to drive and come with plush interiors. Basically, they eschew everything the average person doesn't like about wagons while still including all of the beneficial features.
