Many people confused about this type of car with Multi Purpose Vehicle MPV. The station wagon is actually a sedan car with extended and bigger rear bonnet design to allocate more stuff inside the boot space. That is why some call it as Tourer which is for people who needs to carry more stuff in their car during long distance journey. While MPV have a bigger structure to accommodate more people inside and can also put more things when you fold down the rear seat.
STATION WAGON / AVANT / TOURER / ESTATE CAR
A station wagon is a passenger car body style similar in terms of passengers to the sedan/saloon style but incorporating a full-size back cargo compartment (that can be further extended for a third passenger row in some cases) accessible via a fifth door (liftgate or tailgate) instead of the standard sedan trunk slot. Station wagons are not to be confused with hatchbacks, whose difference lies in the size of the said compartment, with hatchbacks fitting practically as much storage as sedans, but often borrowing the fifth door of a station wagon instead of a trunk.
Also sometimes referred to simply as a wagon, the term ‘station wagon’ is used in United States, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand English, while the alternative term estate car or simply estate is used in British English, with ‘station wagon’ used occasionally for specific model names. Some manufacturers from other European countries, including Audi, BMW, and Citroën have often referred to their wagons as “Avant”, “Touring”, and “Break” respectively
