Re: Will Toyota ever make a station wagon again?
Toyota still builds station wagons, they just don't call anything they sell
in the US a wagon. In the UK, they sell a "5 Door Estate." In the US this
would be a station wagon. See
What is the Matrix if it isn't a station wagon? It might be a poorly
designed station wagon, but if you had sold something like that 20 years
ago, it would have been called a station wagon.
How about the Highlander, or the RAV4? In 1980, they would have been
classed as station wagons. I don't think anyone seriously considers these
For that matter, what is a 4Runner, but a really poorly design station
wagon? I suppose you could call it an SUV, but it a poor one of those too.
Car manufacturers don't want to call anything a "Station Wagon," since that
has negative connotations these days. And now, they don't want to call
vehicles mini-vans either. So now we have crossovers. I wonder how long it
will be before that term is as out of favor as "station wagon?" But really,
Camry's, RAV4s, Highlanders, and Sienna all share many basic components.
Toyota might not admit it, but both the Highlander and RAV4 are just
disguised Camry Wagons.
