- What's a small car that'll take a 29er in the back
Fabia estate works for me. Polo sized, but swallows my 29er whole. If economy matters go for the 1.9 diesel – same MPG in the real world as the 1.4, and it will just refuse to die (my sister’s has about 220k miles on the clock and doesn’t miss a beat)!
I assume that a Seat Ibiza estate would be the same, but they’ve not been around as long so may be over budget.Posted 1 year agovondallySubscriber
Mini is long and externally not that small, internally not great for size.
Hard. To find good lupo the TDI is a gem,i would avoid the fox variant, ups are good but only a brief drive in one.
Polo is a good size as a compromise.
Jazz are really mechanical good and have several friends who use them for biking and climbing, lots of space.Posted 1 year agofunkrodentSubscriber
Honda Civic. Last model before new ones (the wedge shaped ones). Fantastic cars with either a great 2.2 diesel or 1.8 petrol. Loads of space. Rear seats fold flat (magic seats) really easily. Fit 2 29ers in there no problem. You’ll get an excellent model for £5k. Great to drive. Sold mine to get a Mondeo estate for family reasons. I’d buy another one without a second thought. Can’t recommend highly enoughPosted 1 year agoWildHunter2009Subscriber
Suzuki swift, two bikes in the back admittedly with wheels off. Managed my sister and my defy no worries plus camping and climbing gear. Also quite a nice little car in general. Although this was an Australian model which i think might have come with bigger engines as standard. I will be looking for a 2nd hand one when we arrive in the UK in July.Posted 1 year ago
