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.
Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
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.
Americans have purchased and leased 4% more wagons in the first eight months of 2015 than during the same period one year ago, an increase of more than 5,000 sales, year-over-year.
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!
Every child should grow up with a little wooden red wagon, but Wishbone Design Studio has found a way to take the classic toy from being just a parent-powered pickup truck, to a gravity-powered go-kart that lets kids take the wheel as they careen down hills.
[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.]
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.
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?
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.
As the last car of the eighties was an angry Maserati, the 90s couldn’t have started better than with Oldmobile’s fantastic Expression Concept first shown at the 1990 Chicago Auto Show.
I'm not entirely sold on the part of the 2017 V8 Supercars rules that allow non-V8 engines to run yet, because I'll admit: I love that sound. On the other hand, I'm all about the part of the 2017 regulations that allow non-sedan body styles, however, because we could be getting a Volvo wagon. REJOICE!
This weekend we're releasing a 2015 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited to its natural habitat, Vermont, to get the last scraps of the ski season. That should give us an opportunity to suss it out on highways, country roads, and figure out whatever "X-Mode" does. So what do you want to know about it?
Despite driving a Volvo sedan nowadays, my dad has always been a station wagon man. That makes perfect sense because he's a smart guy and wagons are the smartest choice one can make. The Fiat Tempra SW? Not so much.
