Best and worst 7-seat cars 2020
Whether you're looking for a part-time seven-seater or a car to carry that many people on a regular basis, check out which ones to go for – and which to avoid...
1. Audi Q7
The Q7 is a luxury SUV that goes head to head with the BMW X5 and Volvo XC90. And, like those rivals, it has four-wheel drive to gain some off-road ability, but it’s geared towards sure-footed on-road use rather than traversing muddy fields. It’s also an extremely practical car, thanks to a generously proportioned interior and huge boot. But what really sets the Q7 apart is its stunning interior, sensational refinement and pillowy ride.

Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV has been a staggering success in the UK, especially for company car drivers who value its low CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, if you want a seven-seat Outlander, you'd have to go for the 2.2-litre diesel model, which loses these advantages while keeping the PHEV's numb steering and unsettled ride.
