Widely considered a more stylish alternative to the minivan, 8-passenger SUVs are more than mere daily passenger transport. They can tow, haul, off-road, and road trip, too. Whatever you do with your SUV, if you do it with lots of friends and family, you’ll appreciate this list of 8-seaters.
To keep the list sane, we’ve capped prices at $75,000. We’ve also listed the price and trim level you’ll have to choose for each model to get at least 8-passenger seating; it comes standard on many, but not all, models.
No matter what type of SUV you’re looking for, you’re likely to find one that suits your needs and wants on the list below. Here are 16 SUVs that seat eight, including some 2024 models already on sale.
2023 Subaru Ascent driving on highway.
With standard all-wheel drive and 8-passenger seating in the base model, the 2023 Subaru Ascent is easily the most affordable 8-passenger SUV on the U.S. market today. It’s also an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and comes with tons of standard features. See Subaru Ascent models for sale near you
