The terms “sport” and “wagon” rarely come together, but Volvo has been building some of the safest and most exciting sportwagons for years. With a turbo-powered 5-cylinder engine making 240 horsepower you might forget you’re in a wagon pretty quickly, until you remember you might be hauling the kids and family dog with you. 1997 was the first year the Volvo wagons came with front-wheel drive in the U.S... The 850 R will hit 155 mph flat out and fares pretty well in the corners. It’s no lightweight, though, so copious braking is recommended. In all, if you have to drive a wagon but still desire performance the 850 R has got you covered.
