But yes, unfortunately, the SUV/crossover image is taking over for wagons. I never personally understood why people would want a shorter wheelbase and higher center of gravity in a car that barely sees a dirt road, but droves of buyers seem to love the look and style and the sensation of sitting higher up.
I think some of the people also having false sense of SUV being more safe vehicle. I’m in Europe a lot for work, and parking lots full of station wagons like ours full of SUVs. But there are few factors here in Europe:
-Streets are much smaller and parking/driving big SUV is just hard.
-Gasoline/dispel prices are much higher and people are looking for cargo space of SUV with fuel efficiency of the car.
-People are no buying bigger car, just because they can, only because they needed. (I have a lot of friends that driving SUVs, never had more than 2 people in the car or never used cargo space for anything but computer bag).
- Every single car manufacturer is offering a station wagon

Are you sure 'every single car manufacturer is offering a station wagon'?
Probably close enough to true for manufacturers selling in Europe. I think his point is that there are a lot more options for wagon buyers there compared to here.

I sat in a Lusso a couple years ago as they were first coming out (was told only 4 in the country at that time). I never did get to drive it. Very cool car.

That is ironic...I think there has been talk on this forum about neutering you. :):p
Really? You guys are starting to act like a bunch of old Buick guys, with no sense of humor.
If I can provoke that kind of violence.. You sound like you need to get your balls back and take it like a man.

See he volunteered my nut.... but I wish he would have volunteered my gut. I have much more of that to give away anyway. 🍩
Both. Seems like guts are lacking if you guys are talking about me behind my back.

The EU market, along with the rest of the world has a completely different view of wagons then the USA, just is what it is. I liked all of my wagons but out grew there size and moved to biggest wagon I could find, the Chevrolet Suburban LOL.

When I awoke on this fine day, I never thought I would be saying 'Euro-hearse' by the evening. But those last two vehicles (not including the 'vette) are just begging for it.
