As Limited Edition points out, it is taller, never mind all these clever folks trying to talk about ride heights etc.

The reason why it is taller is that the saloon roof is curved to give a pleasing shape, and presumably good aerodynamics. In the estate (sorry, wagon) the curve is flattened to give a more or less contant height to the load bay. There is no logical reason why the wagon roof should be the same as the saloon, since all the pressings will be different anyway, so the actual height will be a compromise between aesthetics, load bay space and cost.
Cheers, Neil
