Wagon

Originally comes from the term “station wagon” – cars with large cargo areas behind the back seat for collecting hotel guests and luggage from railway stations.

These days, wagons (called “Estates” by Europeans) cover a host of vehicles from large passenger 4x4s like the LandCruiser to small ones like the RAV4, and car-based ones like the Falcon.
