On the move: Station wagons

By admin

With the advent of multipurpose vehicles and SUVs, station wagons’ popularity has waned somewhat and they’re

often ignored by those in need of a roomy ride. 

What also counts against station wagons is that they’re often unfairly perceived as dull.

When you hear the words “station wagon” a Toyota Cressida or Ford Cortina might still spring to mind, but modern models epitomise elegance and are often premium-class vehicles from top manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Audi and many others.

Whether you’re looking at old or new though, the one thing that’s remained the same is the luggage space station wagons provide.

Here we compare the Mercedes-Benz C Class, Audi A4 and Honda Accord station wagons.


Audi has never produced an unattractive station wagon and the currently available A4 Avant is again proof of this German company’s ability to design and manufacture stylish family vehicles.

As with its competitors, it’s possible for buyers to adapt and customise the A4 Avant to their taste and needs.

And of course, as one would expect, the A4’s interior finish is top quality. The turbo engine is lively, making the car quick and a dream to drive.
