The biggest car boots for under £30,000
For many buyers, boot space can make or break a deal. Whether you need enough space for the weekly shop or room to fit all your things for a trip to the beach, luggage capacity can be enough to switch buyers from one car to another.
If you’re looking for a big boot but don’t want to spend more than £30,000, here are your best options.
Citroen Berlingo — 1,050 litresIf your sole focus is load capacity, you’ll struggle to find anything bigger than the Berlingo at this budget without buying a van. That’s because this Citroen is actually based on a van, so in XL guise this MPV can pack a whopping 1,050 litres. Not only that, it can also carry seven people, with all three seats in the middle row getting Isofix child mounting points.
Peugeot Rifter – 1,050 litres
The Peugeot shares a platform with the Citroen, which gives you a great-looking alternative with identical load capacity. The Rifter has the same practicality, fantastic visibility and comfortable driving experience that makes this one of the best options for those who need maximum capacity.
Ford Tourneo Connect – 1,029 litres
Here we have another van that’s been converted to an MPV, meaning you get all the same practicality benefits of the previous two cars but on the template of arguably the most successful commercial vehicles of all time. With the Ford Tourneo Connect, you get 1,029 litres of luggage capacity, fantastic people-carrying abilities, and creature comforts straight from Ford’s popular road cars.
SsangYong Turismo - 875 litres
Although SsangYong might not be a household name, it’s one you should definitely consider because it’s one of the best marques around for providing affordable practicality. The quirky Turismo has a massive boot, providing 875 litres with five seats in place, or switch it up to carry seven people instead.
Hyundai i800 – 851 litres
Credit to Hyundai, the i800 has been on sale for an incredible 11 years, only undergoing a facelift recently. In that time it has remained relevant and has offered one of the biggest boots around. It can carry up to eight people and has a boot offering 851 litres of space.
Skoda Superb Estate – 660 litres
While the SUV market has taken over from the humble estate as the practical family car of choice, there are some wagons on sale that are more than worthy of consideration. The Superb Estate is one such car, which is well-equipped, great to drive and capable of carrying up to 660 litres of whatever you can throw at it. It’s a premium car at non-premium prices, too.
Peugeot 308 SW – 660 litres
Matching the Skoda in the practicality stakes is an estate rival from France. The Peugeot 308 SW also swallows 660 litres of stuff, and while it’s starting to feel a little dated now it represents fantastic value for money in a stylish package.
Volkswagen Passat Estate - 650 litres
Another classic estate here, the Passat has long been one of the class leaders in the large saloon/estate market. It shares a platform with the Superb and gets the same bulletproof reliability but with a little more badge appeal. Its 650-litre capacity is only a fraction down on the Skoda, too.
