Wagon is a type of body style of four-wheeled vehicles consisting of 2 boxes. The first box is the engine room and the second box is the rest, according to the driver’s windshield to the back. Almost like with a hatchback four-wheeled vehicle that also consists of 2 boxes. However, in the wagon, the main character is that the rear roof is longer.
If you still don’t imagine, googling aja deh hehe.
This car model is often also called by the word estate or station wagon.
Well, in his time this type of four-wheeled vehicle included a famous four-wheeled vehicle which as an option became a family car. Of course, because the design allows for a free passenger and baggage area. But in the new year 2000 came the era of SUVs that later created wagons now there are only a handful.
Although known as a family car or a frugal car, some of them turned out to have a fierce spec. The manufacturers immersed their flagship performance engine into this family car. Not only that, other specs such as suspension, handling, even to steering wheel are designed for speeding aka racing!
In this review we will discuss 10 JDM wagons using savage specs like performance sports four-wheeled vehicles. Not only according to specs, the design of the car that is now increasingly sporadic aka rare is certainly an alluring visual plus according to these cars.
