Best and worst seven-seat SUVs and 4x4s 2019
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...
1. Audi Q7
Like the rival Volvo XC90, the Q7 has four-wheel drive as standard but is geared towards surefooted 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 a pillowy ride.
Our pick: 3.0 TDI S line
The seven-seat SUVs to avoid:
Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV has been a staggering success in the UK because its plug-in hybrid powertrain means it qualifies for low tax and, until recently, qualified for the Government’s plug-in car grant. Unfortunately, if you want a seven-seat Outlander, you have to go for the 2.2-litre diesel model, which keeps the PHEV's numb steering and unsettled ride.
