Best big 7-seater family cars of 2024

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 several 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, having that extra capacity can be 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.

These are the very best seven-seater cars on the market today.

No contest — it’s the carwow Buy It Award-winning Dacia Jogger with a base price of £18,295. 

The Volvo XC90 is considered to be one of the safest 7-seaters around, thanks in part to its sophisticated level of standard safety equipment and impressive crash test results.

The Audi Q7 has a class-leading 330 litres of boot space with all seven seats in place. In comparison, the BMW X7 has 326 litres and the Land Rover Discovery manages 260 litres. With the third row folded flat, the Discovery is in front with 1,137 litres. The X7 trails quite far behind with 750-litres in this configuration and the Q7 offers a slightly better 775-litres.

Most large 7-seater vehicles are ideal for towing, although things like driven wheels (front, rear or all four), engine power and overall vehicle weight will affect the maximum towing figure.

The Land Rover Discovery can tow up to 3,500kg, this is enough for just about anything you would want to hitch up to the back of your vehicle. As a comparison, the much more affordable Seat Tarraco is still capable of towing up to 2,300kg, this is enough to haul even the largest caravans.
