7. Skoda Fabia Estate
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.
6. Audi A6 Avant
Luxury meets space in the Audi A6 Avant. It's got a plush interior that is filled with the latest technology, lots of space for your family and everything they might wish to carry, and it's powered by a strong range of engines. Add in that it's also comfortable and quiet, and the A6 Avant is very easy to recommend.
5. Mercedes E-Class Estate
Like Volvo, Mercedes has a long history of building large family wagons, and the new E-Class Estate is its best yet. It offers more luggage space than all its rivals, while passengers also get plenty of room to stretch out and the interior is both sophisticated and plush. Just make sure you specify air suspension; it’s an expensive option, but delivers a dramatic improvement in ride comfort.
