There was a time not too long ago when it looked like the beloved wagon versions of our favourite cars would become a thing of the past, something we’d tell our grandkids about because they’d be living in a world of crossovers and SUVs with nary a wagon in sight’ Luckily the powers that be who are in charge of culling slow-selling models and introducing new models started to actually listen to what customers wanted, and so thanks to a few very tasteful models from a couple of the world’s best automakers the longroofs have been saved. We now see a Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon, the Audi RS4 and RS6 Avants and one that the world begged for, the BMW M3 Touring among a few others - all of them being performance models with more power than a wagon should have, just the way we like it. This means there are fanatics the world over that now have something cool to argue over at braais and in the local watering hole - which wagon is best. Thanks to the talkative and expressive Mat Watson from Carwow, we now have an answer as to which one is best out of the two most popular options, the M3 Touring and the Audi RS4 Avant. The RS4 and the M3 are perfect rivals being in the same class and being of similar sizes. One setup features a twin-turbocharged in-line 3.0-litre 6-cylinder powerplant and the other a twin-turbocharged V6, and both have power directed to all four wheels.
Take a look at the YouTube video pitting two of the coolest cars on the market today up against each other to see who rules the proverbial roost when it comes to the lesser-spotted station wagon / Avant / Touring. Both cars feature rather similar-sized powerplants that are both twin-turbocharged and mated to very competent all-wheel drive drivetrains, which means they're greatly matched.
