While there’s no doubt it’s sad to see Volvo stop making the product that made them great, by no means is this the absolute death of the station wagon!
Cadillac just recently launched the (awesome) wagon variant of their CTS. Audi, Mercedes and BMW have wagon versions of their most successful sedans. Some would argue that the new Ford Explorer is more wagon-like than truckish. Could we count the Honda Accord Crosstour or Toyota Venza as wagons (albeit disgusting-looking ones)? Acura’s got a big ad push going for their new TSX wagon. Volkswagen still makes a Passat wagon.
I’m sure there are more, I just can’t think of them right now. Point is, the wagon’s not dead!
