Its not really a station wagon but chevrolet forester beats em all.

ITs a quasi-suv, part hatch,part SUV with performance to boot.

I might be biased but my vote goes to the Palio Adventure 1.6 - great engine, a superlative suspension, ample ground clearance, massive space , Hella fogs, Pirelli offroad tyres, bull bars, black plastic cladding etc...

It's a hoot to drive on bad roads and can go places where most other 4x2 cars and even MUV's would fail.

Baleno Altura, Tata Estate, Opel Swing are OUT of production.

Fiat adventure need not be commended after hearing the ownership woes-Very expensive spares.

Indigo Marina actually jump-restarted the Estate market.Its the most practical of the lot.

Octi Combi is again an Estate for the Rich&Classy

i prefer my indigo marina....
cheap to maintain
to run
sturdy as hell
and there is a tata dealer in practically every part of india today.

For a luxury station wagon..

one could suppose the skoda combi will be a good deal. However i have neither driven or heard
much about it
cheers!!!

I have a huge number of pictures on my hard disk drives, which I have downloaded or scanned or myself shot over the last eleven years. (My first browser was NCSA Mosaic in Jan. 1994) I pulled out one of my old Internet downloads and posted it.

Relooking at it now, it's an early 1960s model with the semaphore-arm trafficator and large bumper overriders. The chrome trim with the chevron in the rear door is original. I remember seeing that chrome trim in my childhood. Two-tone paint jobs and three-tone paint jobs characterized the 1950s as much as white-wall tires and art-deco themes.
best regards

In India? Where did you get this info from? What about the launch date? Which station wagon? 156 or 159?
