The popularity of SUVs has eaten into the estate car market, but estates do offer a valid alternative.
Generally, estate cars are cheaper to buy and run than SUVs. Depending on your preferred driving style, you may find the lower estate cars to be more fun to drive than high seated SUVs.
Estate cars sit lower to the ground than SUVs, so you don’t have to lift heavy items as far to get them in the vehicle. It’s also handy for dogs or any other pets, who won’t have to jump as high to get into the boot.
