The best cheap wagons and hatchbacks answer the call for practically priced cargo carriers, but without conforming to the bulkier designs of SUV-inspired crossovers. Now, it is true that that hasn’t been a recipe for sales success in recent years, as fewer and fewer brands are cooking up traditional station wagons, while more and more owners are committing to crossover entries.

And they’re generally more fuel-efficient than comparably sized crossovers, too. It’s just a matter of searching them out, so that’s what we’ve done here.
