Top 8 Wagons We Want in the U.S. – With Poll

American car enthusiasts read about a ton of foreign-market cars that we just don’t get. Though we would love to have in the U.S. vehicles like the Ford Ranger and Australia’s V-8-powered utes, most automotive forbidden fruit are of the station wagon variety. With so many wagons offered overseas, here are the Top 8 we want most in the U.S.

Click through to see all eight choices and to vote in our poll!

2014 Audi RS6 Avant front three quarter in motion3 300x187 image2014 Audi RS6 Avant: We love a ridiculous wagon and the Audi RS6 Avant has always been one of the most ridiculous out there. The last-generation RS6 Avant’s twin-turbo V-10 might’ve made more power than the new model’s 552-hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, but it’s the new model we want. The 2014 RS6 is bound to be faster, lighter on its feet, and more fun to drive. This all-wheel-drive monster is one wagon we want badly.

2013 Ford Focus ST Wagon: Forgive us for being greedy but now that we’ve got a taste of the 2013 Focus ST hatch, we’d like the Euro-only wagon too. The market could use an affordably priced fun-to-drive wagon and the Ford Focus ST Wagon would perfectly fit that bill.

2012 Holden Commodore Sportwagon SSV Z-Series: We have a soft spot for Holden Commodores, especially the ute and Sportwagon versions. The Commodore Sportwagon SSV Z-Series sits at the top of the Commodore Sportwagon range with a 6.0-liter V-8 making a stout 362 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. Even better, the wagon comes with a six-speed manual, front Brembo brakes, and a sport suspension.

Jaguar XF Sportbrake front three quarter static 300x187 image2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake: It may not offer a massive rear wing or a 550-hp supercharged V-8, but the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is so attractive we don’t care. Currently the Jag is available in Europe with an assortment of diesel I-4s and V-6s. We’d more than welcome another fuel-efficient, luxurious, oil-burning premium midsizer in the U.S.
