Wagon/Sedan/Hatchback.. You choose!

Postby Squint » Thu Aug 04, 2011 11:41 am

Browsing my various news sources while eating lunch and found this article with the title, "Is the Audi A7 the World's Sexiest Station Wagon?" on Fox News. Go to look at it, and I become very confused. That vehicle does not look like a station wagon. Or really even a hatchback, though it's closer to that than a wagon. Perhaps a bad title for the article?

Regardless, it is a nice looking vehicle...

That is a station wagon (or hatchback) in pretty much the same way that a third or fourth generation Camaro is a station wagon (or hatchback).

I'd agree with you, six. Now if only the author of the article would pick one thing to call it. I'm pretty sure he calls it three or four different things.
