Whether you have active loins or simply a lot of friends, having plenty of seats in your car can make you the most popular person at the party. Most cars come with five seats as standard but what if you need just one more?
Unfortunately, since the Honda FRV and Fiat Multipla went out of production, there are no cars designed to seat exactly six people. Don’t let that get in your way, however, because manufacturers offer a variety of excellent seven seat models – who said you can have too much of a good thing?
A seven seater not only allows you and your five friends to get on the road, but means you have a spare seat for luggage or an additional friend if you’re lucky. We’ve trawled the brochures to bring you the best seven seater cars across a variety of categories…
