The B8 Audi A4 Avant sold in America from 2008-2012 was the last true Audi wagon to make it our shores before it got a lift, some cladding and was renamed the Allroad. These cars still look incredibly good and prices have now dropped to fairly affordable levels.
Kevin has owned more than 55 (!!!) cars and bikes and is constantly on the hunt for something different. Now he is looking for the holy grail: something fast, reliable, fun and unique for under $20,000. What car should he buy?
This is a 900 horsepower Audi RS6 Avant with a turbo that is probably bigger than my face. Please enjoy three minutes of this wagon dominating the drag strip with snarling turbo madness.
It seems like everyone is buying crossovers, but you, fine Jalopnik readers, aren’t a faceless member of the CUV-hungry hordes. You are a hot-blooded human being. You want a wagon. Something that handles like a sedan, but with enough room to really let your friends stretch out. And if you shop carefully, you can…
It’s time to dig out and update the ol’ “why wasn’t this available when I was a kid?!’ list because buried in the day one Comic-Con news dump was this fantastic drivable X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer that lets a pair of kids zoom across the sands at a blistering five miles per hour.
The 2017 Buick Regal TourX gives us some hope for the future of wagons, and today it brings even more good news. Buick says the car will come standard with a 250 horsepower turbo motor, all-wheel-drive, and a starting price that seriously undercuts other luxury wagons.
If you are a frequent visitor of this fine website you probably fancy yourself a fan of European sport wagons. I know I do. Now perhaps you are in the market for a BMW longroof that is both unique and insanely expensive. Well, friend, have I found the place for you!
I like wagons. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Saab 9-5 is a wagon, so, obviously I like it. Maybe its price will be something we can all like.
Remember when Jaguar design chief Ian Callum said they were no longer going to focus on wagons because everyone wants SUVs? Callum knows his stuff, but I’m glad he was wrong about this one. Not only is the new XF Sportbrake happening, it is coming to America.
Wagons! Yes, wagons. Wagons.
Imagine a world where American car buyers understood the benefit of the wagon over the crossover, and a certain German carmaker didn’t ruin diesel for everyone. If you lived in that strange place you might want to drive the new BMW M550d xDrive Touring.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Audi 5000 comes from the nadir of the marque’s existence in the U.S., after it was slandered by 60 Minutes for supposedly suffering from unintended acceleration. Let’s see if anyone should intentionally pay this Avant’s price nonetheless.
The real answer for pretty much any car buyer’s situation is not Miata, it’s the Subaru Outback. Few other vehicles that can be everything to everyone like the Outback. For 2018 Subaru’s best-selling car gets a little bit better with upgraded technology and styling.
This is very much my shit. I know I can’t have one, yet I will watch and listen and dream.
The next generation Buick Regal is shaping up to be one sleek luxury car from General Motors’ entry-luxury brand. Now turns out the American Regal might not be a sedan at all, but rather only offered in Sportback or wagon variants. Hooray for superior body styles!
Like their food, the French take their wagons very seriously. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Pug 504 is a perfect example of how seriously that is. Let’s see if its price still has you asking “are you joking?”
The BMW 3 Series wagon is one of the best European cars you can buy for a somewhat reasonable MSRP. Now that last part is important, because I don’t know what this dealership was smoking when it decided to order this wagon and sell it for this price.
