  • Station wagon


    A station wagon — also called estate car, estate or wagon — is a car body style which has a two-box design, a large cargo area and a rear tailgate that is hinged at roof level. The body style is similar to hatchbacks, however a station wagons are longer and are more likely to have the roofline extended to the rear of the car (resulting in a vertical surface at the rear) to maximize the cargo space. The first station wagons, produced in the United States around 1910, were wood-bodied conversions of an existing passenger car. During the 1930s, the car manufacturers in the United States, United Kingdom and France began to produce station wagons models, and by the 1950s the wood rear bodywork had been replaced by an all-steel body. Wagon models sold well from the 1950s to the 1970s, however since then sales have declined as minivans and SUVs have increased in popularity. The names "station wagon" and "estate car" are a result due to the initial purpose of the car being to transport people and luggage between a country estate and the nearest train station.
