If you’re carrying a lot of people, or a lot of luggage, or both, then a 7-seater might be for you. Unless you prefer an SUV or minivan.
The best 7-seater cars are flexible and allow you to go from a large number of seats to a large trunk volume. The larger cars manage to do both: they comfortably accommodate six passengers and their belongings.
1. Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 looks stylish from the outside, and it confirms its edge when you step inside, as it offers plenty of space and an interior that gleams with Scandinavian chic. The XC90 also features state-of-the-art technology, with an attractive portrait-oriented touchscreen, which controls the majority of vehicle functions and settings. Finally, there’s plenty of space in the five front seats, but the two rear seats are a bit crampd for adults.
2. Audi Q7
It certainly looks big and aggressive to other road users, but in reality the Audi Q7 is a great smooth-driver. Indeed, it comes standard with air suspension and large seats, which helps to make it wonderfully comfortable for seven people. There is also plenty of space for their belongings. Audi’s infotainment system, on the other hand, lags significantly behind that of a BMW or Mercedes.
3. The Land Rover Discovery
Think of the Land Rover Discovery as a four-wheeled multi-tool, and you’ll be well on your way to doing just about anything you want. It doesn’t matter if a stray sheep has escaped through the farm or you have to drive the length of the A7 motorway for a meeting. It’s quiet, comfortable and has more off-road capability than the average chamois. In addition, it is light and easy to drive around town as it offers an unobstructed view of the exterior.
4. Skoda Kodiaq
If there’s a car that lives up to Skoda’s “simply clever” advertising slogan, the Kodiaq is that car. It offers plenty of space for five adults, and seven-seater versions can seat two children in the back. The Kodiaq isn’t too big, which makes it easy to maneuver and park. If there’s one thing to be aware of, it’s that the Kodiaq’s ride quality is on the uncomfortable side of firmness, which can make things a bit shaky for your passengers.
5. Volkswagen Touran
There’s no denying it, the Volkswagen Touran is a box on wheels. But if you agree that it’s the best way to transport people from place to place, then the Touran is an extremely practical seven-seater. Wide-opening doors provide easy access to all seats, and even adults will be comfortable enough in the rearmost pair of seats. Disadvantage ? Well, let’s just say driving the Touran isn’t going to get your adrenaline pumping anytime soon.
6. Peugeot 5008
When you think that the Peugeot 5008 used to be a pretty lackluster MPV, the latest version really does feel state-of-the-art. And if it is true that it is beautiful, the 5008 confirms it with real ease of use. For starters, there are five individual seats in the back, so everyone should be reasonably comfortable, although anyone over the age of 10 who is confined to the back seats will only want to stay there for a short time. Every 5008 has plenty of standard equipment, but the touchscreen system can be slow to use and doesn’t make terribly sense when trying to use it on the go.
7. Mercedes GLB
The square-shaped Mercedes GLB might not be the biggest SUV on the outside, but it still manages to fit seven people inside. There’s decent space up front, and three six-foot-tall people will be comfortable in the middle row, but those consigned to the back two seats will need to be a lot taller in stature. small. The trunk is still quite large when no one is sitting in the rear seats, and the low load lip makes it easier to get things in and out of the cargo area. The dashboard is also superb, with two large screens dominating the view, and high-quality trim everywhere else.
8. Kia Sorento
You can’t really argue with the Kia Sorento, because it’s one of those cars that is capable of almost anything, including looking really classy. It accommodates adults in the rearmost pair of seats, meaning it can easily carry seven full-size people. Best of all, all seven seats are easy to access, so rear passengers don’t need to be gymnasts to settle in. Every Sorento has plenty of equipment, but there’s only one engine sold in France (a 1.6-litre petrol-electric hybrid) and every car is four-wheel drive with an automatic gearbox.
9. BMW X7
The BMW X7 is actually a 7 Series luxury sedan with a terrace view and a few extra seats. Her interior is absolutely stunning, with the kind of premium look and feel that will make every occupant feel decidedly content with life. The iDrive infotainment system remains one of the best available, and the cockpit display is concise and reasonably clear. However, other manufacturers offer more comfortable seven-seaters for a lower cost.
10. Citroen Grand C4 SpaceT ourer
While most other car manufacturers are abandoning minivans in favor of seven-seater SUVs, Citroën sticks to a proven recipe, that of the minivan. When it comes to the Citroën , MPV doesn’t have to mean boring, because the Grand C4 Space tourer is one of the coolest MPVs out there. It seats seven adults, although the seating system isn’t as easy to use as some rivals these days. However, once the seats are folded down, the cargo space you have left is really large. If there’s a blemish on the Citroën specification, it’s that the infotainment system is well past its expiration date.
