When it comes to practicality, buying a used estate car isn’t a bad idea at all. Used estate cars are more or less around the same price point as a hatchback or saloon car but have a much bigger load carrying space and cost only a little bit more to run as well.
An estate car is just a longer version of a car than a saloon or hatchback but has a higher shaped rear for getting extra loads in. Because of its size and shape, an estate car purchase will basically mean you need bigger boot space for long-term practical use.
Best Price Car Sales has come up with a selection of what we think are the best-used estate cars in the UK at this current time.
Ford Focus Estate
Let’s start off with one of the most affordable and best value for money estate used cars around, the Ford Focus Estate. With a boot space about double the size of the Focus hatchback, the estate version offers a very comfortable 608 litres of space. This is great for things like sporting goods or a big shopping load. Lots of owners also used these types of cars for pet dogs, and fit a guard rail behind the rear passenger seats.
The Focus Estate also comes with some nice tech features, such as voice control functionality, heated windscreens, and cruise control if desired.
Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer
First things first, the Vauxhall Tourer is one of the biggest and longest estate cars available in the UK, making it even bigger than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the famous Volvo V90. But don’t let the size put you off, because it’s also one of the sleekest looking estate cars on the market, hence why it’s called a Sports Tourer.
