There's a bit of an estate resurgence at the moment. Rapidly becoming the cooler choice for a family vehicle over a less-spacious hatchback or a more inefficient crossover, there's plenty of choice for the 2.4 children, dogs and luggage crowd (of which I'm a part).
We've taken a look at 30 estate variants available on a thirty thousand pound budget to see what the options are for the modern family driver who's after the ideal combination of pace, space and grace.
Electric cars might not be for everyone just yet, but there's one aspect of running an EV that no owner seems to miss - standing beside a fuel pump, watching their savings tick away at an ever-increasing rate.

The word coupé is tossed around like a hot coal these days.
Where once it referred to a two-door vehicle with a proper boot, rather than a tailgate, you'll now find it on everything from glorified hatchbacks to unspectacular four-door saloons.

"Sport" this, "premium" that - it's a wonder you can get anything for £10,000 in the car market these days as cars get bigger and better-equipped, but cutting your new car budget to sensible levels thankfully doesn't mean losing out on a great car.
carwow has compiled a list of the ten best cars available for under £10,000 brand new based on our aggregated buzzScore ratings - and not only are the cars great, but there's real variety too.
We take a look at the ten best new 7 seater new cars. There are a range of seven-seaters, for a variety of budgets, with both 4x4s and MPVs available.
We've all been there - a time and a place when even an estate version of a big 5 seater just can't hold you, your kids, your kids' friends and your stuff, and we just wished we had one or two extra seats.
But seven seat cars always pop up the image of a honking great bus or off-roader that chews through the wallet faster even than the kids do. However, it doesn't always have to be the case. There's economical cars out there for the more fecund and social amongst us and we've been taking a look at the ten that swallow the least fuel.
Buying a city car no longer means settling for an inferior product. Today, the best city cars have respectable performance, good levels of equipment and safety, and outstanding fuel efficiency.
