Seven Of The Best 7-seaters For 2015
Families looking for a car with seven seats now have plenty of choice
Starting at £19,350 on the road, the Peugeot 5008 combines a car-like driving experience with the practicality of a 7-seat people carrier. It has an elevated driving position and comes with the elegance and style people expect from the French manufacturer.
Ford Grand C-Max
Looking for a 7-seater that drives more like a car than a van? Then the Ford Grand C-Max is well worth a look. Starting at £17,655 on the road, the 7-seat offers maximum versatility and a handy walk-through to the rear seats. Clever rear sliding doors make the C-Max practical for tight car parking spaces.
Land Rover Discovery Sport
One of the most hotly anticipated new 7-seaters of recent times, the Land Rover Discovery Sport comes with the option of a third row of seats in a 5+2 configuration. It will be powered by two choices of 2.2-litre diesel engines in two states of tune. Prices start at £32,395 for the basic car, plus the price of those two extra seats.
Citroen Grand C4 Picasso
Always prepared to break new ground in terms of design, the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is yet another example of the manufacturer’s influence in the growing 7-seat market. The C4 Picasso is priced from £19,460 on the road and has an altogether more futuristic stance than its predecessor.
Hyundai Santa Fe
The stylish Santa Fe is Hyundai’s offering in the 7-seat market and comes with a torque on demand 4WD system. Prices start at £31,220 for the 7-seat version of the Santa Fe.
Renault Grand Scenic
Renault can take credit for creating the 7-seat market as the company behind the introduction of the original Scenic back in 1997. Today’s Renault Grand Scenic remains a stylish and practical option for the family market. Prices start at just under £20,000.
Fiat 500L MPW
Perhaps the most dramatic derivation of the popular Fiat 500 format, the 500L MPW is the first to bring the option of seven seats. It’s a brave and quirky choice, but you’ll be sure to stand out in the school playground. Prices start at £15,840 on the road.
