A sturdy load carrier. Above, we illustrate the Vogue Estate Car waiting to carry both passengers and loads. Note the easy access from sides and rear.
The front compartment is that of a saloon, with generous seating for two. The rear compartment is converted to a load carrier, with clear loading space for 700lb. of bulky goods. The conversion is effected quite easily by folding forward the rear seat.
The loading platform is covered with attractive and durable plastic, with an integral foam underlay. The lower tailgate is spring-assisted for ease of operation, it can be left open for carrying lengthy articles.

A 5-seater saloon. By returning the rear seat to its normal position, you transform the carrier to a spacious 5-seater saloon. The rear compartment now has room for 400lb. of luggage - ample for all family needs.
The spare wheel is stowed in its own under-floor housing, independent of the luggage compartment, and easily accessible. The petrol filler is in the left-hand rear wing, still accessible when the tailgate is lowered.
