Wagons....and not SUVs

current: e61 with 121,000mi

looking at:

2014-16 E class
2016-17 328d (or not) wagon

thinking about:
Buick Regal 2018

is there anything I'm missing? as per usual, power to weight ratio is probably more important than fuel efficiency.

It's probably too small, but I've been seeing the new v60 everywhere lately, and I'm starting to really dig it.

Do they make a polestar version of those?

The V90 looks the business and can apparently be ordered in non-Cross Country form. https://jalopnik.com/you-can-only-bu...e-u-1790937348

But you should really buy the Panamera wagon.

I'm intently interested in this thread, but have nothing to add. Check out the E class, both Volvo wagons and the f31 and report back please.

Something tells me the Panamera won't have much usable room in the back and the buick will nanny you to death.

Edit, I found something to add.. a lease takeover from the the Fest on a nice looking 328d
