The estate version of Peugeot's 308 hatchback is spacious indeed, but that extra space comes at the expense of rear leg room. Inside there's a well thought out interior, and while the driving experience is a little unrefined, the 308 SW is priced competitively next to its rivals.

The Auris Touring Sports is a hybrid, so its power comes from both a petrol engine and from an electric motor. So it's economical, it and also offers a decent amount of space inside. It's only average to drive, though, and most rivals offer better value for money.

The Kia Cee'd Sportswagon is a very competent estate car, and despite its small dimensions it can compete with the best in this class. As with other Kias, it's good value for money, with lots of space and kit for a competitive price, but it's noisier to drive than many European rivals.
