They are called Avant, Touring, Estate, Tournament or Sports Tourer, but sometimes simply combined. In this country, they are no longer just for their luggage room size to the volume models. With nearly 700,000 copies sold in 2011 every fifth car was a station wagon – and Germany so the world by far the nation’s number one combination.
Of this cake to want more and more manufacturers secure a decent piece. Fresh in the club currently occur in using the Chevrolet Cruze station wagon and the Jaguar XF Sport Brake. Renault presented in the fall at the Paris Motor Show to coincide with the car again a wagon version of the Clio. Certainly not a foregone conclusion, because among the small car suits are extremely rare. Renault Clio when pursuing a policy other than Peugeot, where the 208-model family must continue to do without a successor to the 207 SW.
Fabia with even more spacious trunk
Skoda however, thinks no doubt at the end of 2013 expected to renounce the new Fabia Combi successful. Since even the sedan gets a noticeably larger luggage compartment, and the future Fabia will surpass his class for this already spacious predecessor (505-1485 liters) again. The distance to the larger Octavia remains preserved, because this puts on his model change in the spring of 2013 as well.

In the middle class of the opportunities without wagon variant are even more unfavorable. In this strongly dominated by fleets and corporate segment choice in three of four cases falls on the wagon. In addition to the all-new BMW 3 Series Touring are also the successor of Mazda 6 Wagon and Ford Mondeo in the wings.
CLA Mercedes Shooting Brake on A-Class-based
For those with a larger budget, Mercedes the combined theme to a new segment. It think the Swabians not a variant based on the S-Class. Audi, too, had not the courage to enter a station wagon in the A8 luxury – the 2001 study presented Avantissimo remained unique. Instead, with the Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake is a very sporty and elegant alternative to the E-Class station wagon to the wheels. Here it should stay not: Based on the new A-Class with the CLA Shooting Brake is another four-door wagon-coupé in planning.
