PRO’s: Great styling, tons of usable space, room for 7 adults, above average visibility and BIG POWER!!
CON’s: Under bolstered front seats.
FINAL THOUGHT: A wonderful alternative to the standard SUV/Minivan that provides all day comfort, big power, room for seven and a driving experience that is MUCH better than you’d expect.
If you were a kid from the mid-1940′s to the mid-1980′s then the odds of you being shuffled around by your parents in a station wagon were pretty damn good. You see before the minivan and the SUV came into the picture, wagons were the shizznit. In fact it hasn’t been until recently that manufacturers are taking a second look and wondering if they should revisit a formula that worked so well for over 40 years. For most people saying “minivan” or “station wagon” is a dirty thing. I mean they’re driven by people who are old, have no fun and are martyrs to their children, right? Well, not really. You see these big behemoths of the open road were people movers and served a purpose that few other vehicles could match. It’s now 2013 and although wagons are few and far between these days, that hasn’t stopped some manufacturers from re-imagining what the wagon should be.
