The Audi A7 TDI quattro features a powerful diesel engine with 438 pound-feet of torque, yet the car still manages nearly 30 mpg.
There was a time when large families bought station wagons to haul around the kids, run errands and take road trips. The popular body style – four doors on a front-end that looked like the sedans in the company’s lineup, only with an extended rear cargo area, hatch and tailgate – was the icon of suburbia.
Minivans and sport-utility vehicles essentially replaced these wagons – American consumers would have been hard put to find one in a showroom 10 years ago.
