Station Wagons are vehicles with more interior cargo space than a hatchback but don’t have the ride height of an SUV. Wagons have had a popular following in the 1970s in the United States prior to the introduction of SUVs. The first station wagons were produced as early as 1910, more modern versions would appear in the 1950s.
A wagon is classified as a vehicle that has a car body style with a two-box design. It features a large cargo area in the interior and a rear tailgate that is hinged to open. The tailgate may come in the form of an upward opening tailgate or a split hatch that opens outwards.
Wagons are great for those who want to have the ability to carry people and cargo at the same time in an enclosed space. These vehicles can be had in either a front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel-drive configurations, depending on the brand. Wagons are ideal for those who want to bring cargo but with the ride comfort of a car.
Popular wagons in the Philippines are the Volkswagen Santana GTS, Subaru Levorg, Mazda 6 Sport Wagon, and the Peugeot 308. The Subaru Levorg 2.0 is the recent addition to the wagons in the Philippines, which replaces the older 1.6 variants.
