If you want a cheap car to run with maximum carrying capacity the Dacia Logan MCV is it. It’s basically a Dacia Sandero estate with 430mm of extra length than the supermini.
It’s far from plush inside but has a 573-litre boot and it gets the job done while keeping costs firmly under control.
Total cost of ownership (3-years, 36,000 miles): £9,271.71
Monthly running costs: £257.55
Cost per mile: 26p
