Wagons are for people that do stuff. Your stuff may happen to be Sea Kayaking.
I think a magnum would look better with a 17' kayak. ;)
Put some removable Thule racks on it for the weekends that the boat sits on top.

I get snipped at for having a trailer hitch on an RT model. It works for me though.

The new Mazda 6 is a lot better looking then the old one. It will also be available as a diesel, which will be interesting.

I wonder if we'll see the wagon at all in North America.

North America isn't getting the wagon, unfortunately. It would probably compete with the already popular CX-5.

I despise crossovers and SUV's...this mazda looks awesome. Will Russia get it? IF so, maybe Putin will give me a passport and a new Mazda wagon.

+1. Time to replace the Sube WRX. Nice looking ride.

Really want a all wheel drive wagon. Anyone look at the Foresters?

Keeping my eye on the 2014 XT. 2.0 turbo and 250hp. Looks good, only downside I see for us in the states is it only comes with the CVT transmission. Better than the current 4 speed AT though.

Bummed to hear the mazda 6 wagon isn't coming here, although I do seem to recall the CX-5 will have a diesel option here soon so maybe that will work out.

Hmm, I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to the Forester as enormous before.

The 4th Gen/2014 Forester looks a lot better then the outgoing 3rd Gen. More sporty like the older 1st and 2nd Gen.
