Looking at these photos of the loads in the boot of their wagons, reminds me when my home washing machine was transported in a Corolla wagon from the shop to my home. Simply impressive.

The Corolla wagons and vans of the 80’s /90’s were very popular Cos can enter CBD - FOC no need display coupons as treated as goods vehicles ..... many small time Towkays did that bought them and then Govt 👀 eyes opened as usual

Oh, I will either choose big, medium, compact whatever MPV or Saloon car lor.

 

MPV and Wagon or SUV  is about same size but only 5 seater lor, a bit wasteful lor.  MPV is 7 seaters and option to become a wagon lor.

 

I don't know why people like SUV.

 

Then if no need MPV liao, then a compact saloon car will do lor ...... 

MPV looks Mumsy

SUV looks Sporty.

At least more SUVs look sporty compared to MPV. Remember, the original question is why people choose SUV over MPV.

This is what I was driving in early 90s. It's a Toyota Tercel wagon. We got stuck in the parking lot one icy morning until I drop into 4x4. Off we went. [nod] 2 extra driving wheels really makes a difference. [thumbsup]

Cost is also another.

Manufacturer seem to position the pricing this way for various variants based on similar platforms: Sedan < Wagon < SUV < SLC

eg. C-class sedan < C-class Wagon < GLC < SLC

RS6 has always been one of the better looking wagon available in Singapore. For lesser moola, I will go with the RS4.

With the new Volvo S60 launching here soon, hopefully the V60 will come as well for you.  [laugh]

 

V90 maybe a bit too ex. 

Shall see. V90 will be too large for me now. I had the V70 previously cos I used to go on driving holiday with my family, their luggage and 2 large dogs. Now we either have luggage for holiday in M'sia or 2 large dogs.
