Small wagons

Small wagons are small cars with big versatility, and they're well-suited to a range of lifestyles. Some offer all-wheel-drive stability and basic off-road capability, while others are meant to be driven with enthusiasm, but they all come with wagon practicality.

With all-wheel drive, a cavernous cargo area and familiar Golf goodness, the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack has a lot going for it. Just don't expect too much in the way of real-world all-terrain capability, although the Alltrack might surprise you on moderate trails.

The Fiat 500L stretches the distinctive styling of the tiny Fiat 500 over a larger body, making for a unique-looking vehicle with the interior space of a small SUV. Unfortunately, most rivals are superior in numerous ways, including Fiat's own 500X.






Midsize wagons

Midsize wagons make for a great alternative to bulkier SUVs, with more cargo capacity than standard cars and available SUV-grade all-wheel-drive setups. You'll also find exceptional design and even aggressive performance in some of today's wagons.

The Buick Regal TourX's lifted ride height and AWD system make it more versatile than some SUVs, and its ample cargo space is an added plus. It's a smart alternative to comparably priced SUV models.

There's plenty to like about the 2018 Volvo V90 Cross Country. Beyond the clean, modern design, it offers incredibly comfortable seats and a host of neat technology features. If it's true off-road ability you want, though, you'd be better served by a proper luxury SUV.

The Jaguar XF blends practicality and handsome looks with inspiring performance. Unfortunately, materials and build quality don't live up to the price, and this Jag also lags behind competitors in terms of technology. But that doesn't make it any less cool.

The Ford Flex has carried on with mostly superficial changes since its launch in 2009. In spite of its age, the Flex is a smart pick if you need a three-row crossover — er, wagon — with plenty of passenger and cargo flexibility as well as strong performance.
