Also known as a station wagon, a wagon is basically a sedan with a longer roof and a tailgate to create more room for cargo or luggage. Wagons also often have longer wheelbases to add legroom in the back seat, which can be great for a family with older children. You can buy a wagon in a variety of sizes, from small to mid-size or large and can make a cheaper, lighter and more fuel-efficient alternative to an SUV.
