Bike Carrying Cars – Show me yours?
I am needing a new car in the near future, however I want something that will be able to accomodate bikes either on the roof or on a tow ball on the rear.
Some cars look much better than others for this purpose, what do you have?
Please consider my budget for this will not stretch to a new Audi 😀Posted 3 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriberNorthwindSubscriber

It is scabby and a little bit past its prime but it does the job really, really well. Well, most of the time,sometimes it goes on strike and creates smog instead 😳 I do have roof bars for it but I don’t think I’ve ever used them, it’ll swallow at least 6 bikes without even trying.Posted 3 years agoP20Subscriber
We’ve been really happy with our Octavia 4×4. It’s comfortable, we took it to Spain last year. Good on fuel, average 47mpg, 2wd would be better. Takes all the kit, large tent, bikes, walking, camera kit, stove etc all inside the car. It’s now on 135k and in the 70k I’ve owned it, other than routine stuff, I’ve had to fix the Aircon. Highly recommended.Posted 3 years agohjghg5Member
A berlingo swallows (at least) two bikes with wheels on no problem. But we’re about to go on a 10 day camping trip to Ireland where we’ll sleep inside (Amdro Bootjump) so the bikes go on the outside instead

kids schmids. big estates are ace.
have a wee alpina b3 that broke 2 gearboxes, did about 18 mpg, was useless for carrying bikes (but still just about fitted 3 bikes and folk in). went quite fast though:
