A car with a big boot can make life that bit easier, whether you’ve got a growing family or a hobby that requires lots of kit.

Finding out which cars have the biggest boot space can require a bit of research, so we’ve done the hard work for you. Here are our top 10 used cars with large boots, from small hatchbacks to luxury SUVs. For each one we’ve listed the boot space in litres when measured up to the load cover (also known as the parcel shelf).

1. Peugeot 5008

Boot space: 952 litres

The Peugeot 5008 is a car that gives you the tough looks and raised driving position of an SUV with the practicality and boot space of an MPV

You get the versatility of seven seats, and when you don’t need the two seats in the third row, it’s easy to fold them away to leave you with a huge 952-litre boot space. When they’re in place the boot capacity is 166 litres – enough for a few bags of shopping or a small dog. 

Unlike some rival SUVs, the 5008 has three individual middle-row seats with Isofix child seat fittings, so it’s a great choice for families with young children. The 5008 is also stylish inside and out, and it’s available with a range of very fuel-efficient engines.

2. Volvo XC90

Boot space: 775 litres

The Volvo XC90 has one of the biggest boots of any SUV and it has much more besides to recommend it. 

It’s a luxurious seven-seater that’s a brilliant choice for large families. With the two rear seats folded down, the boot space is 775 litres,  enough for lots of luggage plus the family dog – even if it’s a Great Dane! With all seven seats in place, the boot will still hold 302 litres of luggage – more than you get with a Ford Fiesta

There’s a plug-in-hybrid version that could give you much lower running costs than you’d expect of a big SUV, although you get a bit less boot space because some of it is taken up by the battery pack.

3. Skoda Kodiaq

Boot space: 720 litres

The Skoda Kodiaq should definitely be on your list if you’re looking for a large family SUV with a high-quality interior, low running costs and a huge boot.

You can buy a Kodiaq with either five or seven seats. The five-seater is less common, but has more boot space, with a huge 720-litre capacity. That’s almost double what you get in a Ford Focus.

With the seven-seater you have a generous 630 litres with the third-row seats folded. Even with all seven seats in place you get 270 litres of boot space, which is as much as you’ll find in a small hatchback like a Ford Fiesta.

4. Peugeot 308 SW

Boot space: 660 litres

Any Peugeot 308 offers an impressive amount of boot space, but the estate version – the 308 SW – takes things to the next level.

The version sold new between 2014 and 2021 is one of the most practical mid-size estate cars you can buy, with a capacity of 660 litres. That’s more than you get with most SUVs and it should be more than enough for a week’s holiday luggage for a family of four.

As well as giving you more load space than the hatchback that it’s based on, the 308 SW also has more room for passengers thanks to its longer wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear wheels). Add in a range of quiet, fuel-efficient engines and a smooth ride and it’s a great choice.

5. Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate

Boot space: 640 litres

Few cars are as comfortable to travel in as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the estate version has an enormous load space to complement its very roomy interior. In fact, it gives you 640 litres of space to use, making it one of the most practical estate cars you can buy. 

You can also choose from a wide range of engines, including petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid options. Be aware, though, that the large battery required for the hybrid models reduces the boot space by 200 litres. Every version is very well equipped and feels effortless and reassuring to drive.

6. Skoda Superb

Boot space: 625 litres

There’s no way you can talk about cars with big big boots without mentioning the Skoda Superb . In fact, very few hatchback cars can match its 625-litre capacity. It also has a huge amount of legroom and headroom, as well as a very comfortable ride, so it makes a brilliant family car.

If the Superb hatchback’s boot isn’t big enough for your needs, there’s an estate version with a boot capacity of 660 litres, making it one of the most spacious estate cars you can buy.

7. Jaguar XF

Boot space: 540 litres

The Jaguar XF proves that you don’t need to choose an estate or SUV if you want a spacious car with a premium badge and a huge boot. The XF is a sleek, elegant saloon with a boot capacity of 540 litres – more than you get in the equivalent Audi A6 or BMW 5 Series. You can even fold down the rear seats if you need to carry longer items like skis or a flatpack wardrobe.

Like most Jaguars, the XF is really satisfying to drive, with responsive steering and a surprisingly sporty feel through corners. It’s also comfortable, with a smooth ride even over the bumpiest of roads.

7. Hyundai i30

Boot space: 395 litres

The Hyundai i30 gives you the excellent value, wealth of standard features and long warranty that you expect of the brand. It also gives you a bigger boot than most other mid-size hatchbacks.

With 395 litres of space, its boot is larger than that of a Vauxhall Astra, Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf. The compromise here is that some similar-size cars will give you a little more rear legroom than you get in the i30, but most back-seat passengers are likely to find the i30 a perfectly comfortable place to be.

9. Renault Clio

Boot space: 391 litres

If you’re looking for a cheap car with a big boot, the latest Renault Clio (on sale new since 2019) is a great option. The boot capacity is a whopping 391 litres, which is more than you get with the latest Volkswagen Golf, which is a much larger car on the outside.

You get enough interior space in a Clio for four adults to sit comfortably, while ownership costs are low thanks to fuel-efficient engines and very competitive prices.

10. Kia Picanto

Boot space: 255 litres

You’ll have more room in the boot of a Kia Picanto than you would in small city-car rivals such as the Toyota Aygo or Skoda Citigo, and the Picanto’s 255-litre capacity isn’t much less than you’d find in bigger cars such as the Ford Fiesta.

You’ll also get more equipment included as standard than you do with many small cars, along with the reassurance of Kia’s seven-year warranty from new. This transfers to future owners and is longer than the three- or five-year warranty you get with many rival cars.
