Auto-Moto has decided to decline the current French sedans in the form of station wagons. What regret their absence in the catalog?
Despite the SUV surge that has plagued the automotive industry for fifteen years, the station wagon is resisting. To the point that some manufacturers are considering only offering this silhouette in certain market segments. This will soon be the case for Volkswagen, when renewing the Passat, insofar as this model will completely dispense with the three-volume variant, in the so-called classic trunk. The Wolfsburg firm is only considering the development of a station wagon, given the low sales scores of the current sedan. The latter has also left the Volkswagen catalog for several months. Who would have bet, ten years earlier, on the takeover of the station wagon on the grand tourer?
The ideal profile?
The station wagon is therefore not dead and even asserts itself as a choice alternative to crossovers of all stripes, often much less well off in terms of trunk volume. All the more reason to encourage manufacturers to develop the genre. At Auto-Moto, we have undertaken to give life to a multitude of French station wagons, currently unavailable in concessions. From the modest city car to improbable supercharged competitors capable of holding out against an Audi RS6 Avant, here is the result of our projections.
