Well, if Ford WAS going to make ONE wagon in it's lineup.. it SHOULD BE a Fusion.

The Focus has the Hatch, which is selling really well BTW.
So a Fusion station wagon would make way more sense than a Focus one.
That is my 2 cents of wisdom.

The Fiesta sedan should become a two door, and the fiesta hatch stay four door.

Then that gives the greatest range of styles with close to what they have now.

And for the car salesman comment that it is hard to sell station wagons..
Yeah.. the current (and past) method of selling cars sucks for dealers: dealers have to buy cars they hope they can sell. and sell in a reasonable time. So they only buy conservative cars they are certain can sell fast. odd colors and body styles are a no-no to dealers.. (the worst was GM forcing dealers to take certain cars no matter if they wanted them or not.)

I suppose some other method of supplying cars to dealers would allow a better range of features and colors andstyles.. But that is just not gonna happen soon.
