A wagon is a vehicle style featuring an elongated roofline to offer greater cargo capacity than the sedan on which it is typically based.
What is a wagon
While a wagon – also known as a station wagon or estate – prioritises space for luggage, lifestyle accessories or other types of cargo, it can still carry the same number of occupants as its relative.
An upward-swinging tailgate provides convenient access to the cargo area.
Wagons are available with front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, while some variants feature heightened suspension and protective body trim to allow greater opportunities for travelling on unsealed roads.
Volvo Car Australia currently offers three wagons: the Volvo V60, and Volvo V60 Cross Country.
The Volvo V60 is a medium-size luxury wagon featuring a highly practical cargo volume of 430 litres. There’s a range of models to suit varying needs and priorities.
The Volvo V60 Cross Country extends the mid-size luxury wagon concept’s capabilities through increased ride height, extra body protection and a hill-descent control system.
Utilising all-wheel drive and a powerful yet fuel-efficient five-cylinder turbo diesel engine, the Volvo V60 Cross Country is a comfortable way to traverse the not-so-well-beaten path.
