Question of the day: Are station wagons cool?
We at topspeed.com love station wagons. Our personal favorite is the S73 T AMG a.k.a the insane Sultan’s S-Class station wagon with the Zonda engine as seen in the picture. But we want to hear from you; yeah you! Are station wagons cool?
Station wagons help people carry their world with them wherever they go. They are big, sometimes ugly and not all that versatile. Their main pluses are loads of space for both passengers and luggage. Award winning sedans like the C Class and the BMW 5 Series have wagon versions too, which makes them derivatives of a cool car.
The word "station wagon" was derived from the wagons that carried people and luggage from the train station to various local destinations back in the 1920’s.
Ok, now, does the excess enclosed storage area take the cool factor away from the transformed sedans? If you think they are cool, which one is the coolest? Would you buy one this winter?
