Thats only 3 people each weighing 66kg. I've far exceeded that weight carrying sand and metal loads in my old avensis, just take it steady and use the anchor points on your Estate to fix the load over the rear axle.

This is important. In the case of an accident or even a sudden stop a weight of 195 kg is very dangerous to have in your car.
