Actually, I think carmakers are starting to "get it" regarding station
wagons. There are more available now then have been for many years. Ford,
Volvo, BMW, Mazda, Subaru, Toyota, VW, Suzuki, and many others.

My sister has the Mazda Protigi wagon -- it's very stylish and well
equipped, albeit small. And a friend just bought a pair of Subarus --
Forester and Outback.
