Dacia Logan MCV - Best estate cars

The Logan delivers some of the best space-per-pound of any new car on sale today

Dacia Logan MCV 2017

The Dacia Logan is the estate version of the Sandero supermini. And, just like that car, the Logan's bargain-basement pricing strategy means you get a lot of car for your money. The rear end of the Logan has a 573-litre boot, which ranks it alongside some of the compact estates we've listed here, while the back seats fold to create 1,518 litres in two-seater mode.

That's pretty impressive stuff, and with prices starting from well under £8,000, the only way you're going to get as much space at this price is by going to the used market.

It's not all rosy, though. The Logan gets a range of farily weedy petrol engines, so if you're planning on towing or carrying any significant loads, you'll be better off with the 1.5 dCi diesel. Even then, it's a unit that's designed for efficiency rather than absolute pulling power.

And that £8k price tag means you get what you pay for. Basic models are pretty spartan, although splash out on a Laureate or rugged Stepway version, and kit is reasonable for the price.
