Fun fact about estate cars: in the 1940s a type of automobile emerged coining the name ‘estate’, largely because that’s where the car would be heading, a glamorous country estate where affluent vehicle owners could relax and enjoy their leisure time. Similar concept today – estate cars have an extended rear ends beyond those of hatchbacks or saloons and are useful for leisure activities. You can sling a lot of luggage in the back of an estate, take the kids to or from university, transport bikes, flat-pack furniture and even inflatable kayaks! Estates are useful and versatile family lease car options. An estate car lease also works well for people with active lifestyles who need a 4 wheeled companion for their adventures.
