Even though wagons aren't all that popular in America, there's just something about them that drives us crazy. Especially fast wagons. There's nothing better than beating someone off the line in a car designed to haul a family. Here are some new cars on the market today that should have a wagon version.

Cadillac
Cadillac CT6-V

With the CTS-V and ATS-V dead, Cadillac only has a single real performance-oriented car in its lineup: The CT6-V. It's a big sedan equipped with the company's new Blackwing twin-turbo V-8. Cadillac didn't bring back the CTS-V wagon for the last-gen car, but it can still make things right by giving us a wagon version of the CT6.

Rolls-Royce
Rolls-Royce Phantom

Though many Phantom owners don't actually drive their cars, we're sure they'd appreciate riding in a car with a bigger greenhouse and even more space for luggage.

Honda
Honda Civic Type R

Honda used to make a wagon version of its Civic, but never offered a Type R version. The hatch is great and all, but a proper long-roof version with more storage space would be perfect.

Mercedes-AMG
Mercedes-Benz S-Class

There shouldn't be any reason you have to "settle" for an E-Class if you want a Mercedes-Benz wagon. The S-Class is the company's flagship, and we bet the prospective S-Class buyers of the world would appreciate one with a bit more usability.

Mazda
Mazda 3

Mazda makes a 3 hatch, but not a proper wagon version. Considering Ford decided against bringing the Focus and its wagon variant Stateside, we figure there's a small space in the market for Mazda to move in on.

Máté Petrány
Genesis G70

The G70 is one of our favorite sedans on sale right now. It's fun-driving, sharp looking, and can be had with a manual transmission. The only thing we can think of that would make it better is a station wagon version.

Aston Martin
Aston Martin Rapide S

The Rapide may be a bit old nowadays, but it's still one of the coolest four-doors you can buy—it does have a naturally aspirated V-12 after all. And who doesn't want a V-12-powered wagon in their life? We sure do.

BMW
BMW M5

BMW has made wagon versions of its top-spec 5-Series before, but for this latest version, it looks like a touring bodystyle is off the table. That's a shame. Fast BMW wagons are some of the coolest cars around, and we need more of them in our lives.

Honda
Honda Accord 2.0T

You used to be able to get an Accord in a wagon body style, but no longer. With the new Civic Type R-sourced 252-horsepower engine and a six-speed manual, we think it would be the perfect sleeper. C'mon Honda, you know it's the right thing to do.

Tesla Model S

Tesla will probably never officially release a wagon version of the Model S, but there's at least one independent shop willing to convert your car if you have the money. It looks good. But we'd still love to see what a factory version would look like—it probably wouldn't be too far off.

Kia
Kia Stinger

The new Kia Stinger is a hit, but you know what would really make it great? A long-roof version. All that performance coupled with a practical wagon body would have enthusiasts foaming at the mouth to get their hands on one.

Subaru
Subaru WRX STI

Subaru decided not to make a wagon version of its WRX STI performance car for the current generation, and that's a shame. If you didn't want to stand out with a big spoiler, the last-gen five-door STI hatch was the perfect choice for blending in while still having fun. Please bring it back, Subaru.

Lexus GS F

While the gaping nose of the GS F is polarizing, we think it looks purposeful, like it needs all of that open space to suck in the air for its 467-hp 5.0-liter V-8. Those wouldn't look bad on a wagon, either.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

The Giulia Quadrifoglio, with its 505 hp twin-turbo V-6, is faster than a Lamborghini Murcielago at the Nurburgring. It's currently the second-fastest sedan ever to lap the Green Hell. If Alfa made it into a wagon, it could hold the title of Fastest Wagon Around the Nurburgring. Which is important.

Jaguar XE

Think about how handsome the XE is. Now think about how handsome a wagon it would be. The V-6 with 340 hp is straight from the F-Type, which would turn the XE into the perfect sports wagon.

BMW
BMW M2 Competition

This is the only coupe on our list, and for good reason: M3 wagons have existed before. But an M2 wagon/shooting brake could be a modern reincarnation of the legendary 'clown shoe' M Coupe. The 405-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged engine would be the perfect powerplant.

Dodge
Dodge Charger Hellcat

Yes, we know the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 was more sales bomb than sales rocket, but there's just something about making a wagon out of the 707 horsepower sedan that seems perfect to us. Dodge: You know what you have to do.
