Cars that fit a bike in the boot with rear seats up?
MPVs are mind-crushingly dull….
However Mondeos are like Vegas every day of course.
Toyota Corolla Verso is worth a look – little cheaper than a Touran on average though I think a little smaller. S-Max is quite a bit bigger, but if you’ve 3+ kids definitely should be considered.
The 50mpg bit is going to be challenging (in the real world) once you’ve ticked the other boxes.Posted 6 years ago

.. but if you can live with an estate I’d go V70 they’re huge.
Yep. Mine will swallow three bikes and three people and all associated kit for a long weekend away with ease. Gets a little less than the 50MPG above though, but then it is fun….! 😈Posted 6 years agoClongMember
So, thinking about a getting a new car, but want to get a bike in the boot without folding the rear seats down. Will a VW touran do that with wheels off? S-Max? Not overly fussed about being a 7 seater, but MPV’s seem to score highly on the versitale side of things, which is what im after, particulary with children etc to contend with. Gotta to be a diesel, giving around 50mpg or more (is that the moon on a stick you have there? ill take it…..)Posted 6 years ago
PP – doesn’t work on our Focus hatchback – at least not with me-sized bikes.
It’s a snug fit with mine… It’s the handlebars that get in the way mostly, they only just fit under the load cover with the bars/forks facing backwards, and I guess we have a wider aperture to chuck it through too! 🙂Posted 6 years ago

Honda Accord estates have a vast boot that is bigger than a Mondeo or Octavia. Not sure about the Volvo’s boot.
If the new Accord Tourer has a bigger/better boot for bikes than a Mondeo, my cock’s a kipper. Furthermore, the boot on a V70 is way bigger and better for bikes than the Accord. Nice looking car, though.Posted 6 years agotransporter13Subscriber
We have a new shape galaxy…much like an S max but a larger boot due to a higher roofline.Posted 6 years ago
I can fit a hardtail bike in the boot without anything being removed.
On a recent rip to scotland, we managed 860 miles from the 15.4 gallon tank whilst fully loaded and 3 kidsStefMcDefSubscriber
I have a Mazda Premacy diesel, ticks all your boxes.
Only thing is they don’t make ’em any more – been replaced in the Mazda range by the Mazda 5, since 2005 I think.
If the 5 is as reliable and economical as its predecessor has been for me, I’d have a look at that. A bit nicer looking as well, which wouldn’t be difficult.Posted 6 years agocolandeMember
my mk1 punto used to fit my 17in hardtail in with the seats up, both wheels off, the parcel shelf would hang off a bit,
in fact driven up to snowdonia (150 miles) with 3 of us in the punto with camping kit and one bike in boot, and 2 bikes on a rear rack,
fiat punto the perfect biking car 😀Posted 6 years ago
