The C5 Tourer features Citroen's Hydropneumatic suspension, which eschews metal springs in favor of compressed nitrogen gas, to offer smoother riding over crappy roads.

9. Ford Mondeo Estate
The Ford Mondeo has won multiple "Best car" awards since its inception in 2007. The Mondeo Estate takes that winning formula and adds more space in the back.

8. Mazda Atenza Sport Wagon
Although the U.S. market no longer gets a five-door variant of the Mazda6, one was still designed and built. It's sold in Japan, where it is known as the Atenza Sport Wagon. Hey, they even get a better name than we do!

7. Honda Accord Tourer
Instead of giving the U.S.-market a proper Accord wagon, Honda has decided to give us the ugly-as-sin Crosstour monstrosity.
Wouldn't sending over the slick-looking Euro-spec Accord Tourer be much easier, Honda?

6. Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon
I'll be honest, the Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon is on this list purely on the merit of being an Alfa. You have to admit, this is one sexy wagon!

5. Holden Sportwagon SS V-series
If Pontiac hadn't gone the way of the dodo, we may have gotten this Holden, rebadged as the G8 Sportwagon. The Commodore Sportwagon is available with a wide variety of powerplants, from a thrifty direct-injected V-6 to the SS V-Series' 360-horspower 6-liter V8.
Your kids would have loved your smokey burnouts after picking them up from soccer practice in your G8 GXP Sportwagon.

4. Audi RS6 Avant
I know what you're about to say. "We already get the Audi A6 Avant in the States."
However, I submit that this is no ordinary A6. It's the RS6 Avant and under its hood is a twin turbocharged 5-liter V10 splitting 571 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque between its four wheels. That's supercar power in an unassuming grocery-getter!

3. BMW M5 Touring
Here in the good ol' US of A, we can get an M5 sedan, no problem. But on the other side of the pond, the M5 Touring is available.
500-ponies and BMW's typical rear-wheel drive and dynamic handling make this the wagon to choose for epic "Top Gear"-style powerslides.

2. Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate
Just announced at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show, the E63 AMG Estate packs 525-horsepower and wicked good looks. Imagine how quickly you could get to Ikea and back in one of these beauties!

1. Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback
As usual, I cheated on the last entry.
The Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback is not an official vehicle from the Italian automaker. Rather it is a one-off model built by Carrozzeria Touring based on the Quattroporte sedan.
It's no Ford Country Squire, but I'd say that it is the sexiest station wagon ever built.
