These Are the Coolest Wagons For Sale on Autotrader

Although many people don’t think the words "cool" and "station wagon" really go together, there are a few cool station wagons that would beg to differ. Here are five of the coolest station wagons currently listed for sale on Autotrader — five cars that prove practicality doesn’t have to come at the expense of fun.

2006 Audi S4 Avant - $16,495

2006 Audi S4 Avant – $16,495

This 2006 Audi S4 Avant hails from an era when the S4 used to take on the BMW M3 — and it has the 340-horsepower V8 up front to show it. Better yet, not only is this S4 Avant a sporty wagon, but it’s a sporty manual wagon; it touts a 6-speed manual transmission for extra fun. One of the few manual S4 Avant models for sale on Autotrader, it’s listed by a private seller near Phoenix for $16,495. Find an Audi S4 Avant for sale

1995 BMW M5 Touring - $119,990

1995 BMW M5 Touring – $119,990

Here’s the dream car of every wagon lover in the world: A 1995 BMW M5 Touring, one of the coolest "forbidden fruit" wagons in existence — since BMW didn’t make an E39 M5 wagon, and since the V10-powered E60 M5 wagon is still years away from legally qualifying to be imported. Offered by Enthusiast Auto Group in Cincinnati at $119,990, this M5 Touring is finished in Santorin Blue with a Lotus White interior, and it features the enthusiast-favored manual transmission. Even though this M5 Touring isn’t 25 years old — the age at which imports are technically allowed to start freely flowing from foreign countries — some E34 M5 Touring models have come to the U.S. after a pricey legalization process. Find a BMW M5 Touring for sale

2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon - $64,900

2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon – $64,900

The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is one of the ultimate wagons, in part because it’s one of the only modern wagons you can get with a manual transmission. This 2013 model is equipped with that stick shift, and that has a big effect on its price: it’s listed by a private seller on Long Island for $64,900. Of course, the desirability of the V Wagon is about more than just its transmission: The 550-hp supercharged V8 up front probably has an effect, too. Find a Cadillac CTS wagon for sale

2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 - $29,000

2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 – $29,000

The Dodge Magnum SRT-8 was a full-size car that was effectively the wagon version of the Dodge Charger. Featuring a 425-horsepower 6.1-liter V8, the high-performance Magnum SRT-8 is obviously fast — and its large size meant it was surprisingly practical, too. This is surely among the nicest Magnum SRT-8 models on Autotrader, as it’s covered just 19,500 miles since it was sold new in 2006 — though its asking price reflects the low mileage, as it’s offered by a private seller in St. Louis for $29,000. Find a Dodge Magnum for sale

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63S Wagon - $127,440

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63S Wagon – $127,440

The latest AMG Wagon is probably the coolest wagon ever made, boasting all-wheel drive, incredible technology, and a 600-hp twin-turbocharged V8 that sends it from 0 to 60 in 3.3 seconds. It’s monstrously, ridiculously fast, and monstrously, ridiculously cool, and you can buy this brand-new 2018 model from Mercedes-Benz of Denver for $127,440. There are a surprisingly large number of these new AMG wagons on Autotrader, suggesting Mercedes-Benz might think demand is higher than it was in the past. Find a Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG wagon for sale
