7 Reasons To Buy An Estate Car

    And they are acceptable.......

    When buying a car you have loads of options-From Small City-Hatches to huge Pickup Trucks.But then,there is one type of car that has always fascinated me-and it is the Estate Cars/Wagons.So,why should you choose an Estate?Here are 7 reasons that demonstrate why an Estate is the ideal choice:-

    1.Boot Space

    This is the obvious first reason as the boot is the main difference between Estate cars and Saloon cars.While many modern Saloon cars have big boots,they can’t compete with the additional height offered by a Estate car.If you need to regularly carry things that are quite large,an Estate car is the ideal choice.

    2.Boot Accessibility And Flexibility

    Size is not the only benefit of Estate car boots,though.In many cases they are easier to access.This is because access into the boot is usually flat,making it easier to get things in and out.It also means the access is lower to the ground so you can slide things in,instead of lifting them in.In addition,most Estate car allow you to fold the rear seats flat,giving you an even larger boot area.


    If a large boot is not enough reason to buy an Estate,your lifestyle might be the deciding factor.For example,it is easier to fit more than one child’s bike into the boot of an Estate car than it is in a Saloon.Maybe you have to carry a load of equipment for work,or do a leisure activity that requires carrying large items.All of these things can sway your decision towards an estate.


    Many Estate cars made 20+ years ago where box-shaped and heavy duty.In a lot of cases,it was hard to see any effort in terms of design,whatsoever.Luckily,this is not the case today.In fact,in many situations,car buyers actually prefer the design of the Estate version of a car over the Saloon version.Modern Estates are as sleek and stylish as any other model in the range.

    5.4×4 And MPV Alternative

    If a 4×4 or an MPV is the type of car you think you need,but you don’t want to buy a vehicle like that,an Estate is a good alternative.For example,if you have a large family and are thinking about buying an MPV,but don’t like the way MPVs drive or look,an Estate is worth looking at.The same goes for 4×4 vehicles.In an Estate car,you get a similar amount of room–sometimes it is bigger than the MPV or 4×4 options.At the same time,you get different styling,and in many cases,increased fuel efficiency and lower running costs.

    6. Options Available

    Another reason to buy an Estate is the number of options you have available.You can buy Diesel or Petrol versions,Manual or Automatic etc.You can get premium brand Estates,like the BMW 5 Series Touring.You can also get compact options,like the Mini Clubman,or stylish family cars like the Hyundai i40 Tourer.

    7.Resale Value

    I found this car for £15000,2nd Owner and abt 80000 kms on clock

    This doesn’t apply in all situations,but in many you will find the Estate version of a car is worth more when it comes time for you to sell it,than an equivalent Saloon model.

    Well,there are still many more reasons,but I don't wanna include them and make the article boring.So,I'm ending it here...........

    All in all,I wanna end it by saying that Estate cars are comfortable and fun to drive,and come with all the luxuries you will find in a Saloon.They are definitely an option to consider.

    • Estates are great imo, but in Canada and the US, I'd argue the options available part. Most of the Estates on sale here are premium ones that cost far more than a van or SUV (which, lets be honest, is what most estate buyers would be looking at rather than a sedan). For example, we mostly only have the Volvo lineup, Audis, Porsche Panamera SportTurismo, Mercedes C and E class, and of course the Ferrari GTC4Lusso (which is more of a shooting-brake anyways). You'll argue the Subaru Outback, but honestly, it's become more of an SUV. Don't call the Mini Clubman a wagon, as it's more of a glorified hatchback. That leaves only the Volkswagen Golf AllTrack and Sportwagen. Sadly, they don't really sell.
