Volkswagen finally figured out how to sell a wagon to Americans! Maybe. Granted, Subaru solved this problem with the Outback a long time ago and has been selling boatloads of their lifted wagon. Now VW’s trying something from the same playback. But despite the initial positive reviews, the 2017 Golf Alltrack might not…
Audi and Volvo—with Allroad and Cross Country, respectively— already know they can get away with throwing lifts on wagons and selling them as new models. Now Mercedes has hopped in on the fun with the new E-Class All-Terrain. It’s macho and burley and totally not the same as the wagon. Nope, not at all.
The 2017 Audi Allroad is the lifted faux-SUV wagon version of the all-new A4. You know this and still wish they offered the wonderful, normal Avant wagon like they do in Europe. Now with a starting price of just under $44,950 it seems Audi would prefer for you to buy something else other than the Allroad.
Mercedes showed off its new sexy wagon lineup today, but we only mentioned the E400 because, right now, that’s the only one to be sold in America. But, having stared at it long enough, the E43 AMG is worth talking about.
I get it. You need a car that can move the whole family, but you can’t stand the thought of a minivan and don’t want to be a crossover-buying sheep. If you have the cash, the all new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon might be the perfect 7-passenger car.
Right now there are some rumors floating around about a possible Buick Regal wagon for 2018. I know we all love wagons here and want more of them, but I wouldn’t get too worked up just yet.
Once again Subaru has paired the classic STI name with the not-quite-so-classic Levorg model. We are so close (and so far!) from a production STI wagon.
I’m positive that if we keep writing about sweet European wagons, Americans will turn and the crossover mania will finally be toned down for good. But for now, let’s focus on four-wheel steering, because surprisingly enough, this affordable Renault family car has it.
Volvo finally showed off the 2017 V90 in all its glory today, and there was much rejoicing in Wagon Fetish Land. The harsh reality is almost none of you cheapskates are actually going to buy it. That is why Kia needs to bring us this sweet Optima wagon.
Volvo “officially” came out with the first “official” pictures of its “official” new wagon, the 2017 Volvo V90, earlier today. And while it looks fine and handsome for a wagon, it could definitely use a pick-me-up. Especially in the wagon part of the wagon. This render is pretty much exactly what we were thinking.

I don’t have room in my life for a beautiful yellow 1981 Toyota Corolla wagon, complete with a five-speed. But maybe you do. And if you do, maybe you should just go ahead and buy this so it stops tempting me. It’s just $3,500. Please help me.
Are you sitting down? Of course you are, because you are at work (or home) reading Jalopnik instead of being “productive.” Well, I’m about to make your Friday even better. As a Jalop you most likely are a fan of the following: manuals, wagons, E30 BMWs, and M3 inline-six motors. Now you can have all four in one shot!
[I maintain my opinion that the Skoda Superb wagon is the best vehicle for a cross continental road trip. It’s spacious, comfortable, and you can even sleep in it with your significant other. Simply brilliant.]
Centauri. Cypress. Ascent. Meridian. Sojourn. Columbia. Any of those majestic-sounding words landing for you as a name for a new seven-passenger Subaru? A reader found himself asked that question in a Subaru owner survey and– wait, there’s gonna be a big Subaru?
Why drive a Corolla when you can have a German sedan for less than $100 per month? Bloomberg reports that Volkswagen Jetta leases are $89/mo in some areas of the country, but is it really a deal if it’s a car no one wants? Perhaps VW should shred the cheap car image and look to a longroof to regain some sales.
Well, congratulations Jalopnik. All our complaints about a lack of wagons in the world has turned the few pre-owned examples into a veritable collector’s item. I realize I’m partly responsible for creating this monster, but it’s getting ridiculous. We’ve managed to make the crossover a better buy. Bravo, everyone.
Our friends over at Bring a Trailer are listing an absolutely beautiful E34 Touring with a swapped 282 horsepower 4.4 liter V8 and a manual transmission. The owner could not get the car CARB certified for CA, so now is your chance to buy it. Current bid is $7100; this is what Jalop dreams are made of.
