    brapoza: Just because you can see some of a particular car on the road hardly means it makes sense to spend the money for Honda to attempt selling a wagon in the USA. Subaru has spent time building up their butch-wagon feel for decades... what can Honda do to successfully slide their own wagon/car into a market that predominately likes CUVs and SUVs? Just because you see a few cars hardly means that enough people are going to buy it. Wagons in the US... Camry wagon? Dead. Corolla wagon? Dead. Mazda6 wagon? Dead. Audi Allsport Wagon? Dead. Dodge Magnum? Dead. Volvo V70? Uhhhhh.

    @essen : The problem with the last Accord wagon was that the rear wheel wells really ate into the cargo space, rendering it marginally more useful than a hatchback. The last Accord wagon didn't have those problems, it had just a huge flat cargo floor. This new generation is crap, with a much smaller cargo capacity. The electric hatch that used to be standard on the last one is also unavailable in the new one.
