I want a van-based car for a large boot space - what do you recommend?

I'm looking for an estate car/van-like car that would give me a big boot space. I need 6.25 feet in length and about 4 feet wide, to drive to Italy and back, but at a low cost - no glamour needed.

A van-based MPV should fit your needs: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-top-10s/top-10-van-based.../

The Ford Tourneo Connect and Volkswagen Caddy Life are the easiest to live with, owing to their compact size, while the Toyota Proace Verso is practical and backed by a five-year 100,000 mile warranty. If money is no object then Volkswagen Caravelle and Mercedes-Benz V-Class should top your list.
