Advice about fast cars and estates

Fast estate cars FAQs

Many fast cars, including estates, are limited to 155mph. A few can have that limiter raised, like the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate which can be ‘limited’ to 186mph when you option on the AMG Drivers Pack.

Porsche doesn’t feel the need to limit its cars and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo maxes out at 196mph. The much pricier and rarer Ferrari GTC4Lusso is capable of 208mph.

The 612hp Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4-Matic Estate not only has one of the longest names but is also the most powerful estate car on our list. The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is more of an elongated hatchback than pure estate car, but it serves a similar purpose and thanks to the help of its electric motors, puts out an incredible 690hp.

That depends on what your definition of fast and cheap is, although the Skoda Octavia vRS Estate should qualify on both counts for most buyers. With a 6.8-second 0-62mph time and a starting price of just under £35,000, you’ll have to pay a lot more elsewhere if you want to go faster.

The Skoda Superb Estate is a simply massive car with 660 litres of boot space that extends to a van-like 1,950 litres with the rear seats folded flat. Not even a Mercedes E-Class estate can match that.

The Superb Estate can also be had in vRS trim with a 276hp turbocharged engine, this launches it from 0-62mph in just 5.3-seconds.
