Estate buying guide

These days, SUVs are often more popular than estates, but don’t rule out the humble wagon just yet. Estate cars are usually based on hatchbacks or saloons, meaning they’re lower to the ground than SUVs and often drive better as a result. Estates are typically more efficient than an equivalent SUV, too.

Read our guide explaining what an estate is and whether you should buy one.

Why buy an estate car?

While many covet the higher driving position you often get in an SUV, the lower ride height of an estate does have its advantages. You don’t have to lift heavy items so high to get them in the boot, and putting bikes or a roofbox on the roof rails of an estate car is easy. Let’s not forget that dogs will find it easier to jump into an estate car’s boot than an SUV’s. That alone might sway it if your dog isn’t just a furry friend, but part of the family. Want an extra perk? You’ll be charged less at hand car washes than SUV drivers.

Diesel used to be the main fuel of choice for estate cars, but these days you’ll find lots of engine choice. Whether you want diesel, petrol, hybrid or electric, there’s an estate car to suit, plus the choice of manual or automatic gearboxes and different drivetrain options. There are even four-wheel-drive estate cars if you’re anti-SUV but want to hit the rough stuff.

Whether you’re after a stylish estate like the Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake or Mazda 6 Tourer, or a load-lugger like the supremely spacious Skoda Superb Estate, you’ll find the estate car for you for sale at Motorpoint.

Your estate car questions answered

Predominantly, an estate car is a big-booted car that’s lower than an SUV or a people carrier (MPV). Some are simply called estates, like the Ford Focus Estate, while others like the Toyota Corolla Touring Sports and the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake have more evocative names to jazz them up. Read our guide to what an estate car is here.

Luckily, the days of holding the passenger seat while you look backwards are long gone. You’d be hard-pressed to find a nearly new estate car without at least rear parking sensors, and many have a reversing camera. Handy if you’ve loaded to the roof with half an Ikea’s worth of flatpack furniture. Estate cars shouldn’t be too hard to park, but a hatchback or small SUV might be a better choice if the thought of backing into a space in a wagon is too horrendous to bear.

Estate cars major on practicality, so they’ll generally have more boot space than family hatchbacks and compact SUVs. Some of the more style-led estates are beaten for outright boot space by bigger SUVs, but some of the bigger estates have a carrying capacity that’s not far off the space you get in a small van.

That’d be the honestly named Skoda Superb Estate, which has vast amounts of legroom and a whopping 660-litre boot. You could fit a whole (model) village in there. Drop the rear seats from the levers in the boot and there’s a 1,950-litre space to try and fill. For context, the Citroen Berlingo van only offers around 150 litres more. The Superb also gets a flat-folding passenger seat, allowing you to carry items up to 3.3 metres long, as well as under-floor storage and numerous handy cubbies.
