    Default How much bigger is the estate over a hatch ??

    We currently drive an 06 sri hatch and have come to the conclusion that we need a bigger boot due to or new dog!!

    not got a lot of cash to spend so was thinking of looking at the vectra sri estate.

    how much bigger in real life is the estate than the hatch ?

    Is there a nicer model than the sri to look at?? xp pack or something?

    cheers

    Its alot bigger. I couldnt beleave the difference when I got my estate after the hatch.

    What do you mean by nicer? Youll strugle to find an XP estate as there arent many about, and they demand a premium.

    In my mind the Elite is nicer as its easier to turn an elite into an SRI then the other way round. But this is IMO others disagree.

    What dog have you got? My golden retriever was more then happy in my hatch, but now hes getting on a bit finds it easier getting into the estate.

    I honestly dont know what car I will replace my Vec with when I come to replace it, as nothing seems as large unless I go up a size (300c's E class mercs etc.)

    9-5 estates are also worth a look

    hi thanks for the reply.

    Ive got a springer spaniel pup who is starting to get bigger now.

    Its not just him,I have 2 young boys aged 6 and 4 and they are wanting to take bikes, scooters etc out.

    when we went to visit parent over xmas as we do every year i had to do a separate trip back with all their presents!!

    does the estate have more rear leg room aswell?

    Im not sure about the leg room to be honest, seems very similar to my Hatch.

    I used to completely full my Hatch each year when I went to Italy. This time I was buying stuff to bring back because I could rather then worry about anything.

    The estate is big! With the rear seats folded down a single mattress fits comfortably.
