Do you have a large pet, or a lot of equipment that needs to be moved? Have you got a growing family and the need for a little more space for a new buggy? If so, then maybe an Estate Car is exactly what you need.
An Estate car is a variant of a saloon with the roof extended to the back over the rear passenger and cargo areas of the car. This extended roof provides extra storage space that is accessed via a fifth (or third if the vehicle is 2-door) door. This extra door is in place of a boot.
An advantage with the Estate is the ability to flexibly reconfigure the space at the back of the vehicle, providing space for the passengers, or more space for the Newfoundland puppy you’ve just added to the family.
The car is referred to as a Station Wagon in the US, a Kombi in Germany and by some manufacturers as a Shooting Brake.
The term Estate car was coined as it was used to transport people to and from country estates in the UK. In the US the name Station Wagon is used, as the original purpose was to transport people and their luggage to and from the train station.
Manufacturers have different ways of branding their Estate cars, using different terms such as Avant, Sports Tourer, Touring and Caravan to identify their own individual version of the Estate.
