Discover The Best 7 Seater Cars
Your guide to the best 7-seater cars on the market
Short of buying a minibus, the 7 seater, or MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) as it's otherwise known, is the best way to accommodate more passengers than your average hatchback or SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) is capable of. An extra row of seats within these vehicles brings the total number of seats up to 7, and is ideal for large families, or those with active lifestyles. Increasing in popularity, 7 seaters are much in demand due to their practicalities for every day family life. In this article we reveal the best 7 seater cars on the market - read on to find out more.
Why buy a 7-seater car?
Greater capacity for passengers
We’re somewhat stating the obvious here, but 7 seaters can obviously mean that you can welcome 2 extra people on board, which can make the difference for many families, or for people like childminders.
A very generous boot space
One of the other benefits of a 7-seater car is the extra boot capacity that folding down those extra seats can afford you - it can be as much as 1000L or more.
If you’re partial to an outdoor pursuit like mountain biking or golf, simply load your bike or clubs in and off you go! Similarly, MPVs appeal to those with four-legged friends - just think of all that extra room to stretch out!
What are the best 7-seater cars?
Land Rover Discovery Sport
Who said MPVs have to be long and cumbersome? The Discovery Sport puts this misconception to bed well and truly, as the compact and dynamic body type makes the extra row of seats almost imperceptible. Those who choose this as their 7-seater car can look forward to a high driving position, an intuitive infotainment system, and a wide range of engine sizes to choose from.
Volvo have really upped their game in the last 10-15 years or so, and that extends to their 7-seater offering, the Volvo XC90. This car will only entertain a larger engine size, making each and every model powerful - particularly handy if you’re covering long distances. As standard, you get heated front seats, front and rear parking sensors, and leather upholstery amongst many other features - there’s lots to enjoy on board.
Skoda took a risk by releasing their first-ever 7-seater in the form of the Kodiaq, but it’s definitely paid off by providing extra room without an outrageous price tag. It’s surprisingly easy to handle, and its range of engine types means that you can find a Kodiaq on the used market that fits the kind of driving you do.
Environmentally friendly AND accommodating of up to 7 passengers? The Prius+ is full of surprises! You can find four trims available on the used market, with adaptive cruise control, heated mirrors, lane departure warning, and a reversing camera fitted as standard to all models. All 7 passengers can look forward to a comfortable journey and a whopping 1,750 litres of boot space with the rear row of seats folded down.
This is another deceptive 7-seater vehicle — on the face of it, it’s your average SUV. This makes the 5008 easier to park than other MPVs you may find on the market, without compromising on the practicality you’d expect from a vehicle with an extra row of seats. Say hello to a whopping 2,150L of boot space with the seats laid flat!
