Station wagons were never exactly glamorous, even though many of the old wagons of bygone eras carried a certain prestige. Now, though, a lot of the best station wagons have adopted characteristics and features of more powerful, utilitarian vehicles. For families who want some of the styling and technology of a sport utility vehicle without the excess size, or the comfort of an upscale midsize sedan except with more cargo room, splurging on one of these expensive station wagons might be the perfect alternative. If you’re in the market for a new station wagon, or will be soon, check out the list of the top 10 most expensive wagons to find options loaded with appealing features and amenities.

There’s much more to these high priced wagons than their cost of entry. While a lot of manufacturers design their station wagons to appeal to budget minded families, there are definitely other options. The best wagon features are the size, shape and convenience. It’s easy to load one up with a ton of cargo and passengers and just go. Because it’s shorter than a sport utility vehicle, it’s easier to access the roof storage area, and it’s lower to the ground so it provides a car-like driving experience and point of view. The most expensive station wagons boast some serious improvements to an otherwise basic vehicle, though. These pricey wagons are decked out with high end tech features, the latest safety equipment, and comfortable cabins.  Many of the best upscale station wagons have engine options and styling cues that position the wagons alongside the auto manufacturers’ other top of the line offerings. And sometimes, high end station wagons even come in four wheel drive or all wheel drive options, for a little bit of offroad capability or light towing. These high priced station wagons might be serious competition for larger family oriented vehicles.
