Used Estate Cars

An Estate car is essentially a hatchback or saloon with an extended rear end, providing more boot space for those who need it. It’s a great choice of car for larger families, golfers or any sports players with bulky equipment, or perhaps tradespeople needing to carry lots of essential tools around with them.

As with a hatchback, the boot opens at the rear of the car, with a large square-shaped opening making it easier to load bulky items. Folding rear seats are usually included as standard too, giving you the opportunity to create even more space behind the front seats.

Modern used estate cars are now much more stylish and tend to also be more economical to run than the older model estate cars.

Why choose an Estate?

If you require more space with a large boot opening and square-shaped luggage then an estate car ticks all your boxes. There is a great range of modern used estate cars available, and with much more stylish design and almost as economical as a hatchback, an estate is a great choice for those requiring a larger car.

Is an Estate car the right choice for you?

The two main advantages of an estate car are space and easy loading, however, depending on your requirements there are a few different options. SUVs and Crossovers are other possible choices, for example, if you require maximum boot space you may be better opting for a taller car such as a large SUV.

Some versions of estate cars are fitted with four-wheel-drive, giving you extra grip off-road, so if this is high up on your list of priorities, then an estate car can fulfil this need.
