Wagons You Can't Get In The US, Vol. XLVII

Cool station wagons are being spotted somewhere else!

The new Citroen C5 Tourer in either Africa or the UK, I can't quite make out. [above, via iafrica.com thanks dt reader dt]

And last but not least, Orry's 1983 Mercedes 230 TE, on the website of the Malakas-Crew, a gang of W123 tuners somewhere in Germany. What's German for redneck?

I am very sure this is a UK license plate. I can vaguely see the Euro sticker on the left hand side of the plate.

[no doubt, it's just that the site is in South Africa: the part of Africa that thinks it's Europe. -ed.]

And just to twist the knife, the Honda Accord Tourer (wagon) available in the UK (equivalent to our Acura TSX) gets the following (UK standard, different from EPA) mileage with the 2.2 diesel:
Urban (mpg) 37.7
Extra urban (mpg) 57.6
Combined (mpg) 47.9
Aieee!
