Small estate cars are the Goldilocks of the car world. They’re not too big and not too expensive, yet they’re brilliantly roomy and versatile.
While the default option for those looking for a car that’s compact on the outside yet spacious on the inside might be an SUV, small estate cars often give you just as much – or even more – space for less money. There’s also a great variety to choose from. There are sleek and stylish examples such as the Mini Clubman, for example, hybrid-powered options such as the Toyota Auris and great-value small estates such as the Skoda Fabia. You’ll even find a range of fast and fun options that combine lots of space with a really enjoyable drive. Here, in no particular order, are our nine favourite used small estate cars.
