the TSX wagon is ugly. I like none of the japanese wagons. Only the Germans can build them to not look like hearses.

I know the mazda2 isnt a wagon. But at the beginning of the thread I thought we sorted out that hatch and wagons are more than welcome in this thread

doesn't make sense to wait, get a wagon you want now, i'm so glad i did, and it's so much more functional than a coupe

For some reason, as much as I love wagons and as much as I absofreakinglutely lust for the CTS-V sedan..... I'm not a big fan of the CTS-V wagon it looks good, it just doesn't have that pull that the RS6 Avant does.

^ I agree, love the CTS-V coupe and sedan and I thought I liked the wagon until I saw one the other day in Boston (not the V but....). Girl I was with was like what the hell is that and all I could say was, that's ugly as hell. I wanted to like it and liked it in pics but God it is terrible in person

^Agreed. I respect the performance aspect of the wagon, but I'm not a huge fan of it's looks.

i think it's the big C pillar or whatever you call it, and the crazy angled hatch.
it's like they tried to make it not look like a wagon, which was completely opposite of what they should have done, and what every other car manufacturer does with their wagons
and looks terrible in person... i know you already said it, and i quoted it, but it needed to be said twice or more

Once the CTS-V Wagon shows up in the dealers in Boston, I'm going to check it out. This is one hot freaking ride...
It's all subjective, but you'd blow the shit out of almost every other car out there on your way to the grocery store... F-yea.

and i appreciate them all, minus the Caddy Like I said, I wanted to like it and like the performance but Mitch is right on, the hatch is too angled. Look at how sloped the roof is, it can't have much usable room inside even.

I used to think Audi made the best looking wagons, but lately Volvo's been doing very well.

I'm positive it's been covered more than once, but I think this is amongst the top 5 best looking wagons out there.

That's had RS4 body work? Look at the front air dam. That's an RS4 air dam. Same as the car above it.

Thanks for the clarification. Yea, the A/S/RS4 are all built on the B7 platform so whenever I'm unsure of what trim a car is I always refer to the platform. I knew it wasn't an RS4, but couldn't tell if it was an S4 either because the A4 and S4 don't have many differences between them aesthetically other than wheels and badging.
