Best estate cars
Estate cars are an ideal choice for many families thanks to their large boots and low running costs. They can accommodate large amounts of luggage or a dog, while their rear seats can be folded down for when van-like space is required. While SUVs are in fashion at the moment, many families would do better with an estate car – something many buyers seem to overlook.
Estates tend to be based on saloon or hatchback models. Some are so similar that they're mechanically identical, while others are noticeably different to the saloon or hatchback that they're based on. Either way, you can expect a good saloon or hatch to make a good estate.
