The best estate car deals

Volvo V90, Audi A4 Avant, Mercedes E-Class Estate, Skoda Octavia Estate

If you're in the market for a new car, then naturally you want to get the best price possible. And the good news is that by buying through What Car?, you're guaranteed a great deal.

Many people are still understandably nervous about the prospect of going into a showroom and haggling with a salesman, though, which is why we've launched What Car? New Car Buying, a free service that lets you browse through discounted new car deals online.

Today, we've rounded up the best deals on estate cars. If you’re after bags of space but you don’t want to commit to the van-like dimensions and styling of an MPV, there are some great estate cars on offer that should do the job.

Tricks to look out for include electrically operated tailgates or even rear hatches that will open automatically when wave your foot under the rear bumper; they’re particularly handy if you’re trying to load in a heavy, bulky item. You should also look for handles in the side of the boot itself that can drop down the rear seats; these are much more convenient than having to walk around the side of the car to do it.

These deals are all based on our Target Price – What Car?'s way of making sure you don't pay over the odds. It's set by our team of mystery shoppers, and represents a fair price for your car. You could save even more, however, by going through our New Car Buying service.

Simply click on the relevant deal to find out more about it, or call us on 03302 216207 and we will be happy to help.
