The U.S.A. might be obsessed with CUVs at the moment, on account of the cargo capability and general practicality, but the truth is that the vast majority of CUV owners would be better served by a wagon. Why? Because a wagon offers all the same practicality benefits on a platform better suited for driving on paved roads, and who the hell actually off-roads a Toyota Venza? Wagons kick CUVs' asses.
Of course, we know a pretty clear formula for making a fairly regular car into something badass, and this, of course, gets applied to wagons as well. The wonderful result are these: The Most Badass Production Station Wagons.
