Sleek, sporty, with a 30-mpg highway EPA rating, and with up to 60.5 cubic feet of cargo volume (with the second-row seatbacks down), the 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon proves that wagons are back at Acura in a big way. Starting price for the five-passenger entry-luxury 2011 TSX Sport Wagon is $30,960. Powered by a 201-horespower 2.4-liter i-VTEC in-line four-cylinder engine matched with five-speed automatic transmission, the TSX Sport Wagon “is more than capable for a car of its size and weight,” say editors of TheCarConnection. The wagon is also “smartly styled inside and out” and “well-built from high-quality materials.”

If you want the “Ultimate Driving Machine” in a wagon form, consider the 2011 BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon. Available in 328i Sports Wagon and 328i xDrive Sports Wagon models, the Bimmer wagons are priced just right starting at $37,150 and $39,150, respectively. There’s just a single engine, the 230-horsepower 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder paired with a six-speed manual or a six-speed Steptronic transmission with paddle shifters. TheCarConnection says the wagon “convey[s] a sense of purposeful, handsome solidity,” has attractive interior styling that “doesn’t get in the way of functionality.” BMW says the Sports Wagon is “a sports sedan in disguise.” With 27 mpg highway fuel economy (manual and automatic), the 2011 BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon is fairly fuel-efficient as well.
