Best SW cars in D segment

A station wagon, also named as an estate car, touring or even turnier or kombi depending on the brand, it’s a variant of a saloon/sedan with a longer body to sustain a bigger trunk and perhaps more seats.

The Volkswagen Passat Variant

This is model is one of the best on the market when it comes to SW cars. It has a large trunk of 650 liters with a loading capacity of 560 kg. The roof can sustain a load of 100 kg. With generous dimensions (Length: 4,767 m, Width: 1.832 m, 1.477 m). Overall, the Volkswagen Passat SW is a good combi car used in most of the Europe.

Opel Insignia Hatchback

The Opel’s SW, comes with a loading capacity of 547 kg in a 500 liters trunk. The Roof Load is a standard 100 kg. Even if it has larger dimensions (Length: 4.842 m, Width: 1.856 m, Height: 1.498 m) than the Passat Variant it actually has less utility capacity.

The Audi A4 Avant

With a great image in Europe the Audi A4 Avant is one of the best SW’s out there. The Roof Loading is a little lower than usual – 90 kg – and loading capacity has only 515 kg & 505 liters. Therefore, the Audi A4 Avant (Length 4.725 m, Width 1.842 m, Height 1.434 m), has lower utility capacity but instead concentrates on engine power and Fuel Consumption.

Mercedes C Estate

This Premium SW has a great loading capacity of 575 kg and a Trunk Volume of 490 liters. Regarding the Roof Load, that is only 75 kg but it’s being compensate by the good loading capacity. The Mercedes C Estate (Length: 4.702 m, Width: 1.810 m, Height: 1.457 m) is a great car for a family and has rather powerful engines.

BMW 3 Series Touring

The Touring BMW 3 Series concentrates more on engine power, sustainability, comfort rather than the loading capacity (520 kg) and Trunk Capacity (495 liters). It’s still a great station wagon with accents of a sports car. It is smaller than the other models in its category: Length: 4.633 m, Width: 1.811 m, Height: 1.429 m)

Ford Mondeo Turnier

This station wagon has an incredible Loading Capacity of 733 kg making it one of the biggest loading capacities for station wagons. The Trunk is acceptable with a value of 525 liters. The Ford Mondeo Turnier is one of the biggest cars in it’s class with dimensions of: 4.867, 1.852 and 1.501.

The Skoda Superb Combi

The Skoda has one of the biggest trunk capacity (610 kg), a great loading capacity of 610 kg and a roof load of 100 kg. This station wagon is a wonderful family car and due to its technologies and superb finishes makes it one of the best cars in its category.  The chassis is also rather big (Length: 4.856 m, Width: 1.864 m and Height: 1.477 m) creating a great comfortable car.

Overall, if you are searching for bigger trunk and loading capacity our suggestions would be to concentrate on the Ford Mondeo Turnier or the Skoda Superb Combi. If you are more interested in quality and engine power, than the Mercedes would be a better choice.
