As far as family estate cars go, the Superb Estate ticks all the right boxes. This is one car that's close to faultless. Not only does it boast a mammoth-sized boot but it has the quality feel of a premium car, yet costs the same as a family hatchback. When it comes to offering value for money, nothing does it as well as the Superb Estate.

The practical boot offers more carrying capacity then a Ford Mondeo Estate and with its vertical sides, it's easy to maximise the space. Drop the seats and it's positively cavernous.

But that doesn't come at the expense of passenger space, with the Superb Estate boasting the kind of rear legroom you'd find in the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Even those over six-foot will find huge amounts of space in the back.

Then there's the superb ride quality, the suspension dealing effortlessly with potholes and poor quality roads, even when fitted with larger 18-inch alloy wheels. Add in minimal road noise in the cabin and the Superb is the ideal long distance car. True, the Superb is not the most involving car through corners but it still handles well with lots of grip and nicely weighted steering. 

Most Superb Estate owners opt for a diesel with the Skoda available with an economical 1.6 TDI or 2.0 TDI engine. The latter is our pick of the range, especially the 150PS version which blends good fuel economy with strong in-gear performance.

If you're a low mileage driver, the good news is that the Superb Estate is available with the excellent 1.4 TSI petrol (later improved to a 1.5 TSI). Don't be put off by its small size as both are more than capable delivery plenty of get-up-and-go when required.

There's a genuine quality feel that flows throughout the Superb Estate and a real attention to detail. The perfect example being Skoda's 'simply clever' features which include a handy ice scraper that slots into the fuel filler cap and our favourite, umbrellas that slot into both front doors - a Superb trademark feature. There's even a removable magnetic torch in the boot with a 48 hour battery life.    

Prices have increased since it was first launched and S models are now more than £25,000, although at least equipment levels are generous. There's also the option of 4x4 versions which, when fitted with cold weather tyres, make the Superb Estate ideal for driving in wintry conditions.

What cars are best for tall families?
My husband is 6'5" tall and I have two growing teenager sons who are also tall. Plus, two large dogs. What estate, SUV, minivan or pick-up would you recommend?
The best car for your needs will probably be the Skoda Superb Estate. It has a huge boot and has lots of head and legroom for those in the front and rear seats: https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/skoda/superb-estate-2015/ If your budget doesn't stretch to the Superb. Then consider the Octavia Estate: https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/skoda/octavia-estate-2013

Can you suggest a quality family car with a decent amount of space?
We currently drive an Audi A1 and love it, but with the arrival of a new baby we're finding it too small. We're looking for an upgrade but find that the Q-series of Audis have small boots, and only when looking at the Q3 do we think the boot is big enough - and this is a big car! Can you recommend a reasonably sized family SUV or saloon that would match the quality of the Audi brand and drive, but be big enough for a small family? We're also used to driving automatic and would like to stick with this if possible. We have an approximate budget of £15,000.
Have you considered an estate car? A Skoda Octavia could be a good option - it's got a huge boot and £15,000 will get a 2018 example with the 1.4 TSI engine and DSG automatic gearbox. You could also consider the Skoda Superb if you need even more room. If you'd prefer an SUV, take a look at a Honda CR-V.

Can you recommend a good petrol hybrid estate?
I currently have a 2-litre diesel Toyota Avensis Estate with 94,000 miles since new in 2010. It's very comfortable and has a big boot with seats that fold down for a golf trolley. I travel about 10,000 miles annually with regular long trips. I'm changing cars soon and would like a little more comfort. I'm thinking an Audi estate, either A4 or A6, probably the A6 with larger boot. Ideally for the future I'd like a petrol hybrid. Any suggestions?
An Audi A4 or A6 sounds like a good option. Also consider a Skoda Superb if you're looking for value for money - we rate the Superb highly and the 2.0 TSI is a good engine. You can get a plug-in hybrid version, which might suit your needs if you can charge a car at home. If you'd like to go down to the plug-in hybrid route, we'd also recommend a Volvo V60 or V90 T8.
