Rare bird.


That's right, a Camry wagon from the previous generation.
It was sold in some European countries. But never in the US.
Is is kind of weird to see the wagon rear end on such a familiar face, isn't it?

There was a similar Honda Accord station wagon sold in the U.S. in the early through mid 1990s. A "Tourer" version of the European Accord is still sold there. See one here or Google Honda Tourer:

I guess SUVs killed station wagons for a while, but new stationwagon-like cars are coming back. Most people don't need the heavy, gas-hogging, truck-based SUVs, and a return to smaller, but still useful cars is a good thing, I think.

The Camry wagon from this generation was never sold in Europe, but only in Japan, Australia and New Zealand, and perhaps some other asian countries. Even the Camry sedan is exotic. It has no diesel and it's overpriced, sometimes pricier than euro sport sedans.
