When Volvo launched the new V90 and V90 Cross Country in US, the strategy was to offer Americans a Crossover-esque lifted version, while the “real” wagon had to be ordered. It turns out some dealers ordered V90s anyway, which means you can buy one without the wait. However, the option to order one directly from Sweden…
I think it’s safe to say that the modern Buicks don’t typically elicit a lot of excitement from your average enthusiast, but that might be about to change.. With the introduction of the all-new Regal Sportback and wagon, Buick is hoping to shed its AARP image and get some younger folks behind the wheel.
Despite the fact that Americans cannot buy many of the world’s fastest wagons, Mercedes is a ray of light in this dark world of longroof deprivation and continues to sell the E63 AMG wagon on our shores. As it turns out the E63 S is now the quickest wagon around the ‘Ring.
This is it, the fastest most powerful wagon available in America. While the Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon may not have the same allure as the 1987 AMG Hammer wagon, it is a beast that is equally brutal and practical. It even comes in brown.
There was a time when an AMG wasn’t just some car you bought from a dealership. Not long ago you, could take your Mercedes and a large stack full of cash to the tuners at AMG—then a separate company from Benz itself—and they would make you basically whatever you wanted, even if that meant stuffing a 6.0-liter V8 into…
Mary is a cool mom who hustles her three hockey loving boys around in an Audi A6 wagon. Unfortunately, the Audi is getting up there in miles and it’s starting to become too costly. It’s time for a replacement. What car should she buy?
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.
