Top 10 cars for dog owners with all budgets accounted for
10. Skoda Fabia Estate
The Skoda Fabia Estate is a dog friendly vehicle for a modest price. The 530 litre boot is large so there is room for a crash resistant cage. Skoda sells pet friendly accessories, too. Highlights include the rubber mat that protects the floor of the boot from muddy paws. The Fabia Estate is also easy to drive, robust, and well equipped for a supermini. Prices start at £15,900.
9. Dacia Duster
The Dacia Duster shares many such strengths but has a tougher, rougher, more assertive look to complement its dog-friendly features. This low-cost sports-utility vehicle costs from £11,995.
8. Land Rover Discovery
The Land Rover Discovery can take your dog to remote beauty spots most vehicles cannot reach. Its high ground clearance, all-wheel drive, and terrain response system ensure it. Terrain response adjusts the behaviour of various systems to suit the conditions. Pick sand mode, for example. Pet accessories include a ramp that makes it easy to get in the boot. The Discovery costs from £53,150.
7. Toyota Land Cruiser
The Toyota Land Cruiser has similar ‘go anywhere’ strengths but more restrained styling. It is subtle in comparison which might suit if you like a vehicle that blends in. Prices start at £42,405.
6. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 door can also take your pooch on remarkable off-road adventures. It has all-wheel drive, of course. You can also remove the doors, roof, and fold the windscreen flat for a more extreme experience. You can then rinse paw prints off the floor with your hose as there are drainage holes. All from £48,920.
5. Skoda Superb Estate
The Skoda Superb Estate is extremely spacious. The boot is 660 litres increasing to 1,950 litres once the rear bench is folded flat. There are pet accessories, too. Options include the guard that splits the boot into sections and dog seats belts. The Superb is also a capable long-distance cruiser. Prices start from £26,925.
4. Volkswagen Passat Estate

3. Mercedes-Benz E-Class
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the most prestigious dog-friendly cars. The 640 litre boot is enormous and a low lip makes it easy for your pet to climb aboard. Alternatively, the leather upholstery can be easily cleaned if your pooch prefers the rear bench. The same cannot be said for fabric seats. The E-Class is also comfortable, stylish, and relaxing to drive. All from £42,100.
2. BMW 5 Series Touring
The BMW 5 Series Touring has similar strengths mixed with a sportier, more youthful vibe. This large estate costs from £41,860.
1. Aston Martin DBX
The Aston Martin DBX is another large, comfortable, prestigious vehicle for dog lovers and the optional pet pack further adds to its appeal.
