If you want to get in on the SUV trend but need more seats, these 7 seater SUV models will be ideal
It’s a common misconception that seven-seater cars must be bulky and not all that attractive, but choosing an SUV model with extra seats is the perfect way to get something sleek and still practical.
Seven-seater SUVs also offer increased ride height and some off-roading ability, so they’re ideal if you’re an outdoorsy family that likes to head off the beaten track.
Plus, plenty of SUV options come with a luxury finish that will be appreciated if you value prestige and plush styling.
Take a look at some of our top picks for used seven-seater SUVs.

The Volvo XC90 is a ticks-all-boxes option for a reliable seven seater SUV, combining space and practicality with a sleek and minimalistic design.
There are a few engines to choose from, including the mild-hybird petrol B6 option that improves fuel efficiency and the plug-in hybrid Recharge that allows you to drive for some distance without relying on fuel at all.
With all seven seats in place, the XC90 offers up to 302 litres of boot space that can extend to 1,816 litres if you fold down all of those seats.
It’s also happy to go off-road, with a four-wheel-drive system and air-suspension in top-spec models.

The SEAT Tarraco is another option for a durable seven-seater SUV that gets some impressive equipment even as standard.
Four adults will be able to sit more than comfortably towards the front of the car, while the rear seats are ideal for fitting in the kids.
The Tarraco feels most at home on the motorway, but will be just fine for cruising around town or heading on the school run.
It’s always quiet in the cabin and comfortable on longer journeys, so it would be a good pick if you head out on road trips regularly.
You’ll start with a 230-litre boot with all the seats in place, but this can be boosted to 700 litres just by folding down the back row.
With all the rear seats folded, you’ll have a 1,775-litre loading space.

If you’re on the market for a true off-roader that’s every inch a luxury car, the seven-seater Land Rover Discovery is likely the best choice for you.
The Discovery covers all areas when it comes to a car that’s comfortable, happy getting muddy, and really enjoyable to drive.
If you want a powerful seven seater SUV, the 3.0-litre D300 diesel engine can hit 0-62mph in just 6.8 seconds.
The interior of the Discovery is luxurious but hard-wearing, so it won’t get upset if you drag the outdoors back in with you.
All models come with front and rear parking sensors too, plus a 360-degree surround-view camera as an optional extra.
Even as standard, you’ll get an 11.4-inch infotainment unit that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

For an option that’s a bit more budget-friendly but still has that luxury look, the Peugeot 5008 is an SUV with seven seats and plenty of charm.
In fact, it looks pretty similar to some Land Rover offerings.
The big brother of the Peugeot 3008, the 5008 is available with a petrol hybrid or diesel engine that both happen to be pretty economical.
In fact, the 1.6-litre BlueHDI model offers up to 54.1mpg on the combined cycle.
The boot space in the 5008 is on the smaller size with all seats in place – you're looking at up to 167 litres.
If you want to move large loads, however, you can drop all the rear seats and enjoy a massive 2,150-litre loading area.

a Runway red Kia Sorento PHEV driving on a road
Another seven-seater with a self-charging hybrid and plug-in hybrid option, the Kia Sorento offers all the rugged good-looks you’d want from an SUV that offers an impressive four-wheel-drive system and isn’t scared of going off-road.
In the plug-in hybrid model, you can travel up to 35 miles using electric power alone.
This makes it ideal for saving fuel while on the school run or making trips around town.
If you do plan on heading off-road, the Sorento features an impressive electric centre differential lock system that keeps the car stable and a four-wheel-drive system that sends power to the axel that has the most grip.

The Skoda Kodiaq is a great value-for-money seven seater SUV that’s spacious inside, but the rear seats are most suitable for smaller passengers.
It’s still comfortable and roomy, but if you want your seven seats to fit all adults then another option might be better.
The boot is roomy for a seven-seater, offering 270 litres with all the seats in place and 835 litres if you drive in five-seater mode.
You can even extend to a 2,065-litre loading space if you fold all the rear seats.
The Kodiaq also received a full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating on its 2017 test and receives positive reviews for reliability all-round.
It’s also a comfortable and easy model to drive with a choice of a 1.5- and 2.0-litre petrol engine, or a single 2.0-litre diesel.

A grey BMW X7 driving in the desert
If you’re a BMW loyalist but need extra space, the appropriately-titled BMW X7 is a premium SUV that can easily seat seven.
One of the main selling points for the X7 is the gorgeous styling – it's chunky with an aggressive grille at the front, and the high estate-style roofline is ideal for maintaining headroom as well.
You might find this used BMW a bit harder to manoeuvre around inner-city car parks due to its large size.
The high driving height gives you a really good view no matter where you are, however, and you’ll feel right at home on the motorway.
When compared to other seven-seater SUVs, the 320-litre boot space is impressive – even more so when you consider that it can extend to 750 litres if you lower the rear seats.

Watch us drive the BMW X7 M60i

If you like a German car but aren’t stuck on the BMW, a used Audi Q7 is a worthy rival.
They have the same luxury feel and premium styling but offer a more elegant look than the feisty X7.
You’ll be surprised at just how spacious this model is, as it drives like a much lighter vehicle.
There are two 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines to choose from, as well as a V6 petrol set-up that offers up to 330hp.
Audi interiors always shine, and the Q7 definitely lives up to that reputation.
With the Audi Virtual Cockpit and a 12.3-inch screen behind the wheel, it’s every bit the ultra-modern SUV.

A silver Land Rover Defender from the side
Another contender from Land Rover, the Defender is a true icon that’s beloved by outdoorsy folk and urban city dwellers.
Its true talents lie in its off-road ability, with a Terrain Response system that sets the car up for success in testing conditions by automatically self-adjusting.
You won't mind sitting in the Defender, either. You’ll get an 11.4-inch touchscreen infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Plus, the styling is glamorous and might make you think twice before getting it muddy.
Boot space is ample as well, offering 397 litres with all the seats in place and extending to 1,563 litres with the seats folded down.
