Sport Wagons: Practical Performance By Brian Alexander, Content Editor

They say you can't have your cake and it eat too - an adage that has proven itself all too true in the world of cars, where practicality and performance typically reside on opposite sides of the equation.

Sports cars are impractical by their very nature, with some unable to accomplish the simple task of leaving room in the trunk for a set of golf clubs. So for the most part, performance cars are secondary vehicles, relegated to a life of brisk Sunday drives and appearances at posh social events.

The recent rise of the Sport SUV has provided some practicality-driven enthusiasts with salvation, but SUVs aren't for everyone and they don't offer the same dynamics of performance cars. Besides, the average person doesn't have the six figure income required to signoff on the purchase of one of these massive, gas guzzling, horsepower churning behemoths.

For the true car enthusiast requiring more than a modest amount of versatility provided by sedans , the outlook is bleak. However, there is one often-overlooked way to have your cake and eat it too. Want sports car performance coupled with ample cargo space and versatility? Look no farther than the performance wagon.

Performance wagons offer all the thrills of their performance sedan cousins, with that extra bit of cargo capacity that some can't live without. Before you get images of the Griswold Family Truckster on its way to Wally World, consider how far technology has come in the last decade alone. High-pressure turbos, electronic all-wheel drive and six-speed manual transmissions are commonplace in the modern performance wagon. In fact, it's such an exploitable platform that Audi recently launched its 570 hp European RS6 - its most powerful production car ever - exclusively in Avant - er, wagon form.

The versatility of the sport wagon is perfect for outdoor activities and negates the purchase of expensive roof racks. Simply put down the rear seats and load your bike, skis, snowboard or camping equipment in the back. Add to this the fact that many performance wagons are offered with all-wheel drive and the practical allure of the sport wagon becomes clear.

In short, the sport wagon is the enthusiast's perfect compromise. While the stigma of the station wagon may take some getting over, the mix of performance and versatility provides - for many - the best of both worlds.

So go ahead, have your cake and eat it too. Here are our top ten sport wagons .
