2015 Skoda Fabia Estate 1.4 TDI 90 DSG review - DO NOT PUBLISH

The Skoda Fabia hatchback is a former What Car? Car of the Year, so it's no surprise that the estate version impresses, too. It's superbly practical and very affordable to buy and run. As you'd expect, there's a lot of standard safety equipment and the driving experience is also fairly good. If you're after a practical estate that's not too big or expensive, look no further.

Volvo V60

The V90 may be the biggest estate in the modern Volvo range, but it's the V60 that's the company's best. It's still a very roomy choice and feels every bit as classy, yet it's cheaper to buy and run and both more comfortable and more enjoyable to drive.

2. BMW 5 Series Touring

New BMW 5 Series Touring vs Mercedes E-Class Estate vs Volvo V90

The latest 5 Series Touring shows BMW at the top of its game. This is a hugely appealing luxury estate car because it's comfortable, quiet and enjoyable to drive, with an interior that's as classy as it is practical. Plus, standard self-levelling suspension helps it cope with the heftiest of loads.
