7. Kia Sorento
The Kia Sorento isn’t the most sophisticated SUV around, with its slightly drab styling and a driving experience that’s nothing to write home about. But what it does offer is seven seats as standard on almost every model and great value. There are plenty of toys on most models, too, and newer examples will benefit from Kia's seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
6. Ford S-Max
Few MPVs prioritise their driving experiences, but the Ford S-Max is the exception to the rule. It’s great fun to drive – and yet it still offers space for seven and a comfortable ride. The downside is that there isn’t quite as much space in the rearmost seats as in some seven-seaters, and you do get an interior that feels a little cheap in places. But if you need an MPV, yet still want something fun to drive, it fits the bill perfectly.
5. Vauxhall Zafira Tourer
The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer is one of the most popular MPVs around, and big discounts when it was new means it’s fantastically cheap to buy used. So while it isn’t the most spacious seven-seater going, its price makes it a great value buy for those on a budget who don’t need a full-size MPV. The Zafira’s a cracking car in its own right, too, with a brilliantly versatile interior and a classy dashboard. At this price, that makes it something of a steal.
