Problem: “Mr Nice guy needs a prestigious car with a large boot. Reason: To carry his golf clubs to corporate events with other professionals."
Problem: “Mr Nice guy needs a prestigious car with a large boot. Reason: To carry his golf clubs to corporate events with other professionals." Solution: The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate. This load-lugger is so vast it could swallow his ego. Its cargo capacity is therefore 695-litres rising to 1,950-litres when the rear seats are folded. Plenty of room for his golf trolley, clubs and bag. So, let us put these figures in perspective. The Citroen C1 - a city car - has capacities of 139/712-litres. The Ford Focus Hatchback - a small family car – manages 316/1101-litres, and the Nissan Qashqai - a crossover - tips the scales at 410/860-litres. Even the WW Passat Estate can only claim 603/1731-litres, and that is a large family car. So, it clear the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate can swallow every driver, iron and putter in his whole collection. The saloon version is impressive too thanks to its 540-litre capacity.Other prestigious vehicles available with a large boot are the Audi A6 Avant. Its capacities are 565-litres rising to 1,680-litres with the rear seats folded flat. Far less than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, but still plenty for Mr Nice guy’s golfing attire. The A6 has a respectable 530-litre capacity in saloon form too. That brings us to the BMW 5 Series Touring. This lifestyle statement has virtually the same capacity as the Audi A6 Avant, so his clubs and clothing can be stored to a tune of 560/1670-litres. In contrast, the 5 Series saloon tips the scales at 520-litres. Even that is impressive. Prices for the E-Class, A6, and 5-Series start at £29,125, £30,495, and £31,195 respectively. But Mr Nice guy has too much cash to care about price – so he has bought one of each.
