    2016 or newer driver's wagons ~$30-$35k, 2021 edition

    Considering replacing my Focus XR5 as it's now a decade old, looking at my options for 2016 or newer wagons (would consider a spacious hatch, but probably thinking wagon) that are reasonably interesting to drive, budget is around the $30-$35k mark.

    Starting point is the go-fast versions of either the Passat wagon or the Skoda equivalent, but looking to broaden my search before I dive in.

    What should I be considering?
    Don't worry, thats just the self-preservation instinct, in my experience you can safely ignore it.

    Something like this perhaps?

      Not much, you either buy into VAG, try something French (Megane or 508 but you don’t get acres of power, but probably a nice steer), maybe the LeForg Subaru thing is close enough or talk yourself into spending more money and go hunting for bigger engined Benz/BMW options but you’ll concede age or price or condition.

        ZB RS-V wagon? V6 and AWD. Not many sold in that spec but their unpopularity new means a good used buy.

          Interested in the responses too. Should have gone Golf R or Passat 206, ended up with a Tiguan 162...with a tune it’s rapid but still a SUV. Tossing up putting the bigger turbo on it, some handling mods and keeping or getting rid of it.

          That 330 linked up there looks good aside from the big km.

            Not many performance wagons left on the market , I would go Golf R if you can find one for 35k. Option B Octavia RS .

              Calais tourer as well, surprisingly good drive, so tempted to flip the Challenger for one.

                I think VAG product is about the only product vaguely driver-ish available with a manual ‘box ... everything else is auto-only, innit?
                Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                  The new Skoda Superb 206 TSI is worth a look - Golf R drivetrain underneath, with plenty of go-fast bits available for them.

                    Mondeo any good?

                    Frenchys do some nice looking wagons.

                        ^^^^ CVT Only so......
                        Skoda Superb is a good choice imho.

                          Finding a sporty wagon is hard now
                          I really don't want to get an SUV for nopics next, but the way the market is going, that's all that's available in the budget
