What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda 6 estate?
The Ford Mondeo estate isn’t quite as capacious as it once was, but it still has plenty of cargo capacity and is quite nice to drive. The downsides are the rather cheap-feeling interior and complicated multimedia infotainment system.
The Skoda Superb estate is huge inside. Luxury limousines struggle to offer more back seat space. It isn’t quite as good to drive as rivals, though, and its diesel engines sound a bit gruff when accelerating.
The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is a great value used estate, even if the svelte rear end does compromise the amount of stuff you can put in it. The interior is well made and features lots of gadgets to keep idle fingers busy. It won’t set your pulse racing to drive and the diesel engines aren’t that refined.
