Best 7-seaters of 2023
The best 7-seaters are the multi-tools of the car world. They’re ready for just about anything, from the school run to the daily commute to taking the whole family to the pub for Sunday lunch.
If you’re in the market for a great seven-seater car then there are a number of fantastic vehicles out there to pick from. Some are luxurious, others sporty, while the best can pack in the extended family and all their luggage.
Because even if you don't regularly drive with seven passengers, having a third row of seats is a great feature in a car. How many of us, after all, have at one point had to take two cars when heading out on a trip with friends or extended family because there simply aren't enough seats to spare? These moments may not come up every day but, when they do, having a seven-seater car is a real boon.
Even if the third row is a little tight, those extra seats are a fantastic resource. Seven-seaters are especially handy for parents, who can take their kids' friends home from school or on outings, earning brownie points from everyone involved.
And for parents with more than one child, having a third row in the back of a car can be a great way of resolving bickering sessions between offspring, or can give older kids a break from their younger siblings, or vice-versa.
Our carwow experts have selected the very best seven-seater cars on the market today.

More advice about 7-seater cars
The Dacia Jogger is currently the cheapest seven-seater on the market. Prices start comfortably below £20,000, although you will want to spend a bit more for a few modern essentials like an 8.0-inch infotainment system and keyless entry. That pushes you up to the mid- and high-spec models, which hover around that £20k mark.
The SEAT Tarraco is one of the cheapest large seven-seater SUVs, starting around the £30k mark, but if you prefer an MPV, the Ford Grand Tourneo Connect is good value, priced from a little over £30k.
All modern 7-seater vehicles need to pass some stringent crash and safety tests before reaching the market. Even thid-row passengers have seatbelts, and most luxury seven-seaters also offer airbags for every occupant.
It is commonly accepted that a larger, heavier vehicle will be better off than a smaller, lighter one in the event of an accident.
Additional seats on their own may not necessarily affect the insurance premium, however they will be considered together with the main rating factors such as the vehicle size, type, performance and its intended use.
This really depends on whether you're looking at when all seven seats are in place, when only five are up, or when all five rear chairs are folded down. The Volvo XC90 has between 316 and 1,856 litres depending on how many seats you have in place, which is pretty decent.
The smaller Tesla Model Y is also available as a seven-seater in America, but in the UK only the five-seat Model Y is available at the moment. The Kia EV9 and Volvo EX90 will soon arrive though, to bolster the numbers.
