Default Some ideas on wagons?

Okay guys just wondering if some of you can give me some valuable input on some other model wagons out there. Now I don't want this to be about flaming certain ones or name brands. I asking people for info about ones they have ridden in, owned or has some first hand experience with these other brands. I have owned a few myself and here they are:XC90, V70R, Subaru Outback, Subaru GT, MB 300TE and now my 2nd 9-5. There are a few I am looking at and kind of interested in but I wanted some other ideas. They ones I am looking at are the Jaguar Sport wagon, 06' 9-5 and 5 series BMW. I have looked at the Lexus Sportcross but it is way to small for what I need. But I did like the Jag quite a bit! Well send me your input and ideas. And thanks ahead of time.


Toxic,

Mazda has a wagon format of the Mazda6. Well they had it in the previous version of Mazda6, anyway. My son likes his Mazda6 hatch pretty well.

I never thought I would, but I like the Mondeo. Seems like a good honest wagon.

Toxicavenger, if you mean wagons that are available in N. America only, I like the new Passat wagon:




There really aren't any other "wagons" left too choose from if you don't count crossovers. Mazda no longer sells the 6 wagon here. Of course there's the 9-3SC (soon to have XWD "all-road" version).

Had we stayed in Europe I would've bought a Mondeo. I think they're very good looking wagons. But I'm a freak who thinks wagons are cool.

Had an 00 Legacy GT wagon, there was more legroom in the back of my 04 GTI. I like my 9-3 Combi, but I wish it had more rear legroom. In retrospect I should've bought a 9-5 Combi, but I just didn't like it's proportions.

If I were buying a new car I'd give the Passat wagon, or the new CC *drool*, a long hard look, despite VW's QC issues.
