10. Toyota Proace Verso
Model 2.0D 180 Family Medium 8-spd auto | Leasing price from £351.54 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £2109.29 initial payment
The Proace Verso laughs at seven passengers, because it can actually seat up to nine people. Yes, it may look like a van, but there's no denying the sheer space you're getting for your money. The 2.0-litre diesel engine you get here is plenty powerful enough, too, and works well with the eight-speed automatic gearbox.
9. Land Rover Discovery Sport
Model D180 S | Leasing price from £417.65 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £2470.02 initial payment
While it's best to think of the Discovery Sport's rearmost seats as being for occasional use only, it can indeed seat seven when required. Elsewhere, the Discovery Sport is a thoroughly impressive large SUV, with lots of space and a lengthy equipment list. This version comes with our recommended D180 diesel engine, too.
8. Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer
Model Puretech 130 Feel Plus | Leasing price from £907.39 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £2722.17 initial payment
The Grand C4 Spacetourer is a big, old-fashioned people carrier. That means you've got seven usable seats on board, excellent visibility and more space than your average starship. Most versions of the C4 come well equipped, and while you might think that a 1.2-litre petrol engine would struggle in a car as big as this, in reality it's a flexible and peppy performer. It is the most expensive car here by a country mile, though.
7. Volvo XC90
Model 2.0 B5D Momentum AWD Geartronic | Leasing price from £488.92 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £2933.52 initial payment
All XC90s come with seven seats as standard, and they're large enough for average-sized adults to be content in, even for longer journeys. The 2.0-litre diesel engine you get here offers relaxed performance, while Momentum cars come fully loaded with adaptive cruise control, heated leather seats and automatic lights and wipers.
6. Ford Galaxy
Model 2.0 Ecoblue Zetec | Leasing price from £334.91 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £2009.46 initial payment
The Galaxy is a great choice if you need space for seven but also want something that's involving to drive. Ford's largest people carrier handles surprisingly well for such a large car, plus it's quiet on the motorway and has brilliantly flexible seating. This 2.0-litre diesel engine has enough grunt to haul the Galaxy along at a decent pace and is flexible enough to handle both town work and faster roads.
5. Skoda Kodiaq
Model 1.5 TSI SE (7 Seat) | Leasing price from £259.10 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £1554.60 initial payment
Skoda's largest SUV is spacious and represents good value for money; it's the cheapest car here by some margin. Although its rearmost seats are less roomy than those of large SUV rivals such as the Peugeot 5008, they should be fine for shorter journeys, and SE trim has most of your equipment needs covered.
4. Land Rover Discovery
Model 2.0 SD4 SE | Leasing price from £568.72 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £3412.32 initial payment
The second Land Rover to feature in this list is the full-fat Discovery, which, unlike the Discovery Sp0rt, we saw earlier, has a third row of seats designed for more than just occasional use. In fact, the two passengers sitting in the third row can enjoy more space than in any other rival, so much so that even taller adults will be comfy over long distances. The 2.0-litre diesel engine you get here delivers adequate performance and helps to keep running costs as low as possible.
3. Volkswagen Touran
Model 2.0 TDI SE | Leasing price from £335.76 per month | The deal 36-month term, with annual limit of 10,000 miles. Plus £2014.56 initial payment
Until the arrival of the Citroën Berlingo – which we prefer in five rather than seven-seat form – the Touran was our favourite people carrier, and it remains a great choice for buyers wanting seven-seat practicality, without resorting to a bulky SUV. It's superbly spacious inside and is great to drive by MPV standards. Even better, our recommended SE trim has most of your kit needs covered, with automatic lights and wipers, 16in alloy wheels and adaptive cruise control.
2. Peugeot 5008
Model Puretech 130 Allure | Leasing price from £315.74 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £1894.44 initial payment
Large SUVs don't get any better than the Peugeot 5008. This five-star What Car? award winner is both spacious and comfortable, and while its rearmost seats are better suited to smaller adults and short journeys, it's still wonderfully flexible. This 1.2-litre petrol engine is pleasantly peppy on both town and motorway journeys, while Allure trim gets you luxuries such as dual-zone climate control, 18in alloy wheels and ambient interior lighting.
1. Audi Q7
Model 50 TDI quattro S line | Leasing price from £588 per month | The deal 48-month term, with annual limit of 8000 miles. Plus £3528 initial payment
Our reigning Luxury SUV of the Year also happens to be one of the best seven-seaters on the market, and it's one of only a handful of SUVs in which you can fit three child car seats side by side across its middle row. This 50 TDI diesel engine is at home both on the school run or crossing continents, while S line trim gets you all the equipment you could want, plus a sportier look. If you're looking to lease a seven-seat car, you can do no better than this.
