When it comes to picking your next estate car, there are plenty of options available, including some impressive hybrid offerings from many different manufacturers.
The reason you may opt for an estate is because they are the best all-rounders.
They offer great interior space, practicality, styling and comfort, and with a hybrid estate, you can expect even more economy.
Here are our seven favourite hybrid estate cars you can buy in 2023:
BMW 330e Touring
The 330e Touring is one of the best hybrids that BMW makes because it offers everything an estate can give in a great overall package.
This hybrid system comprises a 184hp four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine mated to an electric motor that puts out a combined 250hp, which really helps towards its overall fuel economy figure.
Skoda Superb iV Combi
If you’re a fan of luxury for a good price, then the Skoda Superb is the one for you. It’s highly practical and offers superb (if you’ll pardon the pun) interior comfort, with it essentially being Skoda’s equivalent of the Mercedes S-Class.
Its boot measures 510 litres, which is almost as big as the boot found in a Range Rover, plus it can travel up to 35 miles on electric power only – plenty for most daily commutes or short trips with a full car.
If a more luxurious car is what you’re after, you may want to shift your attention to this hybrid C-Class estate.
The Mercedes C300e is powered by a 210hp 2.0-litre petrol engine that’s mated to a 121hp electric motor, which is mated to a 13.5kWh battery pack that offers up to 34 miles driving on electric power alone.
Of course, when the electric motor works alongside the petrol engine, you can expect much more overall efficiency, offering up to 176 miles per gallon.

Peugeot 508 SW PHEV
If style and grace is something you desire from a car then there are few vehicles better suited to you than the Peugeot 508 SW PHEV.
Okay, so there are lots of cars that offer great styling, but this hybrid estate from Peugeot with some seriously compelling features.
Power comes from a 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to a 11.8kWh battery that powers the motor to result in a combined horsepower figure of 225hp.
On electric power alone, the 508 SW PHEV can travel up to 39 miles, which is much better than most other plug-in hybrid models.
What makes this even better is that it has a massive boot, with plenty of space for all your family’s bags.
Volkswagen Passat GTE
Sharing many of its parts with the popular Volkswagen Golf GTE, the Passat GTE is a great hybrid option for those wanting more space than its smaller relative.
With both its engine and hybrid power system whirring away, the VW Passat GTE puts out a combined 215hp, which is actually more impressive than you might initially think.
It also has a 483-litre boot and an all-electric range of 34 miles. There are some impressive used Volkswagen models on the market if you want to save money when purchasing.
Volvo V60 Recharge
When you mention the words ‘practical’ and ‘estate’, Volvo normally comes to mind – its models have been go-to family cars for parents all over Europe for decades.
The V60 Recharge is the brand’s current mid-sized estate, which is powered by a twin-charged 300hp 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to an 87hp electric motor that gives it a final 0-62mph time of less than five seconds – very impressive.
It also has plenty of space in the boot, which measures in at 519 litres and grows to 1,431 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.
Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo
If performance is what you’re after, then we can’t recommend the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo enough.
In its range-topping guise, the Turbo S E-Hybrid produces a whopping 700hp and can travel up to 35 miles on electric power alone.
