According to reports of the largest analytical companies, sales of universal cars on world markets declined in 2018, but increased by 29% compared with 2013. So the popularity of this type of car does not even think to fall.

Apparently motorists around the world still want to ride on station wagons. This is the conclusion made by analysts leading world profile companies. This trend is observed even in spite of the fact that recently crossovers and SUVs have become increasingly popular.

It is reported that consumer demand for some crossovers and pickups, in particular the Japanese Nissan Rogue, and the American pickup Ford F-150 is so great that companies can not cope with it. These are the two best-selling cars in 2018. Despite the fact that companies such as Ford have almost completely switched to the production of crossovers, SUVs and pickups, the popularity of station wagons is only increasing.

According to analysts, sales of station wagons have grown by 29% since 2012, making this car class one of the most growing segments in the past five years.

The share of station wagons in the global market is constantly growing, and in popularity they rank fourth, immediately after compact crossovers (75% of the market), luxury SUVs (71%) and medium-sized pickups (60%).

Last year, the fall in total sales of station wagons was recorded – 211,600 units were sold. In 2017, sales were at a five-year high of 237,600 units, and in 2016, 219,000. According to Tyson Jominy from analyst firm J.D. Power, even the retail share of cars declined from 1.9% in 2013 to just 1.4% last year.
