10. Ford Mondeo Estate
The focal point of the Ford Mondeo Estate is easily its enormous boot, which boasts 537 litres with the rear seats in place, and pushes 1,733 litres when the seats are folded - so it’s easy to see why it has become a flagship family car.
The Mondeo Estate certainly isn’t lacking for space either, with plenty of little cubby holes in the cabin and lots of headroom for passengers in the back. But the interior is a little bit dull, so it can’t really compete with the quality upheld by the likes of the Volkswagen Passat Estate.
With a five-star rating from the Euro NCAP crash test, safety really is at the forefront with this car, backed up by a total of seven airbags. We wouldn't recommend the 1.6-litre petrol engine as it lacks power. Rather, to cut fuel costs, we’d opt for one of the diesel engines that Ford offers, the most economical being the 1.6-litre TDCi Eco Edge- it’s a smart model that emits just 114g/km of CO2.
