What's the used Chevrolet Tacuma estate like?
If it's just a five-seater you're after, the Tacuma offers decent room for all on board. While the boot's not huge, the three rear seats can be removed in all except the entry-level version, leaving more than enough room for your Louis Vuitton trunks. There's lots of storage around the cabin, too, and drawers under the front seats.
Overall, in fact, the cabin's a model of good design. The dash is neat and well laid out, with the controls in easy reach. Only the stereo's small buttons disappoint, while the thick rear pillars leave tiny side windows in the boot and limit visibility. This can make reversing around corners more nerve-wracking than it needs to be. Mind you, if a sporty drive and sophisticated handling are high on your list of priorities, this is probably not the car for you; the stiff suspension prevents body roll in corners, but the resulting firm ride can make town journeys less comfortable. Refinement is acceptable with either engine, but you'll hear some wind noise when on the move.
