Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo - 680 HP

With a 550-hp V8 augmented by an electric motor, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo easily tops this list. It's quite possibly the quickest wagon on sale too, with Porsche quoting a 3.2-second sprint to 60 mph.

Audi RS6 Avant Performance - 605 HP

Audi has a long history of building fast wagons that never make their way to the US. The king of all is the RS6 Avant Performance, which is powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 we get in the RS7 Performance.

Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon - 603 HP

The newest E63 adopts a 603-hp version of AMG's excellent 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. It comes with all-wheel drive, but you can disconnect the front axle for big smoky drifts. Exactly what you need in a practical luxury car.

Mercedes-AMG CLS63 S Shooting Brake - 577 HP

Mercedes doesn't offer the CLS Shooting Brake here in the US, instead selling us the E-Class Estate. The current model is powered by AMG's soon-outgoing 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8. The best part? All 577 of its horsepower gets sent to the rear axle.

Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo - 550 HP

It might not be the headline-grabbing hybrid model, but the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo gets along just fine without an electric motor. It's absurdly quick in a straight line, and handles better than its 4400-lb curb weight would suggest.

Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate - 503 HP

Here's another one that sadly doesn't come to the US. The Mercedes-AMG C63 S Estate offers amazing performance in a wonderfully subtle package. We'll have to settle for the GLC63here.

Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo - 462 HP

Interestingly, the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid makes a few more horsepower than the regular 4S. It's not the fastest Panamera Sport Turismo out there, but its instant electric torque makes it a joy.

Audi RS4 Avant - 450 HP

Borrowing its 2.9-liter V6 from the new RS5, the RS4 Avant is new for 2017 and continues a long line of fast Audi wagons. Sadly, Audi doesn't have any plans to bring this to the US.

Audi
Audi S6 Avant - 450 HP

The S6 might make the same amount of horsepower as the RS4, but it uses a different engine—a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, a version of the unit found in the RS6. In the US, we only get this car in sedan form.

Porsche
Porsche Panamera 4S Sport Turismo - 440 HP

Even though it's down 26 horsepower on its hybrid counterpart, the Panamera 4S Sport Turismo is quicker to 60. With the Sport Chrono Package optioned, it'll do the run in just 4.0 seconds dead. Who needs the Turbo?

Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-AMG E43 Wagon - 396 HP

In the US, we get the E43 sedan but not the wagon. It's not nearly as crazy as the E63 S, but with around 400 horsepower and all-wheel drive, the E43 Wagon is still damn quick.

Jaguar
Jaguar XF S Sportbrake - 380 HP

Even though Jaguar has a new SUV on sale, it still decided to bring a proper wagon to the US. Hell yes. The XF S gets its drivetrain from the F-Type S, and if the sedan version is any indication, it should be great to drive.

Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-AMG CLA45 Shooting Brake - 375 HP

Even though the CLA45 Shooting Brake is near the bottom of this list—it's still a damn impressive car. Its 375 hp comes from a wild 2.0-liter four-cylinder. It's only one of two four-cylinders on this list.

Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-AMG C43 Estate - 362 HP

In the US, you can have your AMG C43 in sedan, coupe, or convertible guise, but not as an estate. It's powered by the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 found in the E43, but detuned to 362 hp.

Volvo
Volvo V60 Polestar - 362 HP

With a new V60 on the horizon and Polestar recently becoming its own brand, this wagon isn't long for this world. You can still buy them—in the US, no less!—and they offer serious performance. Power comes from a turbo- and supercharged four-cylinder that offers excellent throttle response.

Audi S4 Avant - 354 HP

Unlike most fast Audi wagons, previous versions of the S4 Avant have been sold in the US, but not this one. Oh well. At least we can get this drivetrain in the lovely S5 Sportback.
