WAGONS

Wagons used to be the king of the Australian road trip, but have generally fallen by the wayside, thanks in large part due to the popularity of the SUV. The Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore station wagon used to be kings of our roads, but now there’s a lot more models to choose from, most notably from Europe.

What is a wagon?

Wagons are essentially a four door sedan with an elongated hatch-type boot. The result is, sedan comfort and drivability, with the practicality of an SUV. A two-door wagon is also called a ‘shooting brake’ but are increasingly rare in today’s market. Also known as the ‘station wagon’ or ‘estate’, the wagon’s boot is often a rear tailgate or liftgate, and inside the rear row can fold down to offer more cargo room. Popular wagon models these days include the Skoda Superb, Volkswagen Golf, Mazda 6, and at the higher end the Mercedes-Benz E Class, and BMW 3 Series.

How much does a wagon cost?

Due to the limited focus manufacturers put on wagons these days, prices may be higher than sedan or SUV counterparts. However, much of the focus in the wagons space tends to be in the entry-level luxury market, which could offer more features and prestige than other car types. At the cheapest level, a Skoda Fabia base model can be found for less than $20,000, while the Porsche Panamera can set you back more than half a million.

Wagon vs other car types

While SUVs are muscling in on wagons’ sales figures, manufacturers have shifted their focus a bit to make wagons a ‘cool’ vehicle. Often, wagons tend to be in the luxury space, along with larger engines, so you might not get tarnished with the ‘soccer mum’ brush as you would with an SUV. Compared to an SUV, they may not offer the ride height, but can offer the same or better cargo space. Compared to a hatchback, they may not handle as well, but can offer more cargo space. Compared to a sedan, they are arguably most similar, but with more cargo space. Utes win out on sheer practicality, but for comfort, style, rear passenger room and performance, it’s hard to beat a wagon. You could look at the wagon as being a ‘jack of all trades, master of none’ type of vehicle.
