What's the used Honda Accord estate like?
It's a big, slab-sided load-swallower. Its party trick is to pop open and raise its hatch when you press the remote plipper - great when your arms are full of parcels. The load bay is huge, and the seats drop at the click of a catch to leave a flat floor.
The cabin is a generous size, too, and even low-end models have pretty much all the kit you'd want. The driver's seat is comfortable.
Thick screen pillars, however, limit the view out, and a similarly poor view to the rear makes easing back into a tight space awkward. Find a car with parking sensors fitted - you'll need them.
All engines are lively and it's sharp to drive, if not the best in class. Safety kit includes multiple airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control and even the option of auto-steer to keep you in lane.
However, it scored only four stars from Euro NCAP for protecting those inside - several rivals have a maximum five.
