Best and worst 7-seat SUVs and 4x4s 2018
Whether you're planning to carry seven people on a regular basis, or just need an occasional third row of seats, there’s an SUV to suit your needs...
7. Kia Sorento
The Sorento is closely related to Hyundai's Santa Fe, but it's a more practical option because its third row is spacious enough for adults, not just children. It also has a punchy engine, heavy towing capacity and comfortable ride, although the very best rivals are more refined.
Our pick: 2.2 CRDi KX-2 Auto
The latest Sport is based on the regular Range Rover, so it’s no surprise that it’s a fantastic car for covering long distances, with smooth engines and a cosseting ride. The luxurious and generously equipped interior looks and feels classy and, crucially, unlike its bigger brother, it can be specified with seven seats.
Our pick: 3.0 SDV6 HSE 7st
5. Volvo XC90
The XC90 has always been a very practical family car, with a versatile interior and huge boot. However, the latest version is also enjoyable to drive and very classy inside. Only average refinement and a slightly unsettled ride stop it from finishing even higher on this list.
Our pick: 2.0 D5 Momentum
