Perhaps the most surprising thing about our list of the 10 best luxury station wagons for 2019 is that there are 10 of them in the first place. It wasn’t that long ago that long-roof models seemed to be on the verge of extinction. They’re not exactly common today, yet a new generation of lifted wagons — patterned on the original Subaru Outback — seems to be turning things around.
Luxury station wagons seem to have a new approach to naming, too. The old-school “station” wagons have been replaced by vehicles like Sports Wagons, SportWagens, Sportbrakes, and Sport Turismos. Now, you may be detecting a theme here, yet for all their sportiness, all of these vehicles still retain traditional versatility with plenty of cargo room. One even offers way-back third-row seats for a true station wagon ownership experience.
