Station wagons are also one of my preferred cars.Nice @oioioi never thought of the Element to be that practical!
I love the Baja but don’t need it. My favourite is always the wagon. Even though it won’t fit a bike it seems to be the ultimate in utility.
Our 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS was the best in terms of storage. Good engine, garbage transmission made of glass, comfortable, good handling, sporty suspension, and one of the best steering wheels I’ve ever felt. Overall super happy with it if it wasn’t that transmission (4 speed auto) it would be at the top of my list for cars owned.
We went to Europe a few years ago and rented a Škoda Octavia station wagon (same thing as a Jetta station wagon)
We fit more luggage/stroller into the station wagon than we would have been able to into the CRV that we had at the time here.
Again, I tried to convince my better half but a quick "No"
