Many people think station wagons are what moms drove in the 1980s while hauling kids to soccer practices and Wham! concerts. And back then, many station wagons really were boring to drive and extremely uncool. But these days, there are fewer wagons with wood panelling and more wagons with turbochargers. They’re called sport wagons, and they look cool and drive just as well as sporty sedans while offering up enough room to haul camping gear, furniture, bikes, dogs, dead bodies, or, yes, even kids.

The CTS-V boasts a 6.2-liter V8 engine (USA! USA!) that’s supercharged to the tune of 556 hp. That translates to a 0-to-60 time of in 4 seconds flat. The wagon also comes stock with 19-inch aluminum wheels, free OnStar in-car security for one year, Bluetooth connectivity, and 58 cubic feet of storage space. Drive it as a six-speed sick, or a six-speed automatic — it’s your choice. (The correct choice? Stick.)
