The biggest selling point of an estate car is its boot - if you need lots of space in your car, then an estate is the way to go if you don’t fancy an SUV. All our estate car reviews tell you how much boot space you’ll get. 

In an estate car, you‘ll get a big boot, plus room for the dog, the children, and even grandma.
