Daewoo will spice up competition in the bargain estate market in September with this Nubira wagon. Based on the Pininfarina-designed saloon, the estate model can swallow 400 litres of luggage, expanding to 1410 with the rear seat folded.

Two engines will be offered: a 109bhp 1.6 and a 121bhp 1.8.

Alloy roof rails are standard and other handy touches include an extra 12v socket in the boot to power laptops or fridges and a total of 25 cubby holes.

The estate is based on the Lacetti/Nubira platform. It’s slightly bigger than a Subaru Impreza and will cost from around £11,500.

  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
