Crossovers and SUVs may dominate the UK sales charts, but it’s still worth considering the humble estate as a plush and practical family car. If you’re used to a saloon or a hatchback, then an estate may feel more familiar than an SUV, but they’re also less expensive to buy and run than an SUV counterpart, and they still have the potential to cover every motoring eventuality. To help you, here are Auto Trader’s five favourite estate cars for every size and budget.
- Honda Civic Tourer – the versatile one
- Peugeot 308 SW – the great value one
