Mercedes does not sell a lot of wagons but their clients who purchase E wagons are some of their wealthiest. So its a must have in the MB USA lineup.

However, realizing how small the market is in the US, Mercedes never brought over the CLS Shooting Brake Estate to the US.

I would love to see more wagons and less tall lumbering modern day minivans that will never go off road. But US consumers think bigger is safer........

The Guardian had a few nice things to say about the Buick Tour X

or rather, a clone of the Tour X, which is known across the Pond as the Vauxhall/Opel Insignia

Get one now. While supplies last you can get a good looking all-wheel-drive wagon with a MANUAL TRANSMISSION with a 6year/ 72,000-mile warranty for thousands below sticker price.

Yup, and if you are around the republic(Boulder), the local dealer looks to have over a dozen GSW's on their lot..
