The Best 7 Seater 4x4s

Looks, Power and Space

Until quite recently, if you wanted to head out into the rough, you’d have to do so in a boxy, uncomfortable (though practical) 4x4. And if you wanted to venture out with more than 4 other passengers, you’d find yourself in a less than glamorous MPV or minibus, with limited capability.

Not any more! Now you can combine 7 seater functionality with the power of all-wheel-drive, wrapped up in a comfortable, stylish SUV. From the school run to an outdoor adventure, these skillful beasts will help you and your family or friends to handle any terrain, with bucket-loads of space and excellent towing capacity to enjoy along the way.

There’s a huge choice of SUVs on the car market so, which are the best 7 seater 4x4s? Here are 5 of our favourites…

The SEAT Tarraco - SEAT’s largest SUV - adds a little sparkle to 7 seater 4x4 options, thanks to its sporty styling and a range of beautiful metallic paints, available at no extra cost.

Inside, there’s a choice of fabric, leatherette or leather upholstery and adjustable sport seats to keep you comfortable along the way. Features like Park Assist, Virtual Pedal and Keyless entry provide effortless manoeuvring and loading.

7 seats come as standard, although the more compact rear seats may be better suited to children than adults. The SEAT Tarraco is easy to handle around town and with 4Drive option on the largest 2.0-litre engine, it’s a real city to country car.

Gargantuan dimensions mean that there’s simply no way you wouldn't have enough room in the Land Rover Discovery - whether carrying luggage or passengers. Even the third row of seats offers plenty of room for legs and heads with everyone taking advantage of luxuriously appointed leather seats.

Off-roading is what Land Rovers do best, and with all-wheel-drive as standard on every Discovery model you’ll be hard pushed to find anything that this expertly equipped 4x4 can’t tackle with ease and in style.

An excellent wading depth of 900mm means it can be a little more adventurous than other SUVs while superb towing capacity makes it ideal for pulling along caravans, trailers or horse boxes, too.

Volkswagen Tiguan

Whether in standard 5 seat or Allspace 7 seat format, the Volkswagen Tiguan has proven to be another 4x4 hit. Four-wheel-drive is available in the form of VW’s capable 4Motion in conjunction with the automatic 2.0 litre diesel engine.

The ergonomic dashboard is laid out in a logical fashion, putting everything within easy reach in a cabin that boasts the usual solid, VW quality.

Ambient lighting and optional panoramic tilt and slide roof provide an even more spacious feel to the interior while Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist and Lane Assist allow you sit back and take it all in.

The Honda CR-V is one of the world’s best-selling compact SUVs for plenty of reasons. The fact that it’s now available in 7 seat configuration and 4WD will have only increased its popularity. Hondas are renowned for their reliability and the CR-V is no exception.

Throw in a comprehensive safety system using radars and cameras for traffic and blindspot monitoring and you’ll see why this 7 seater 4x4 is such an excellent family choice.

The Honda CR-V’s full title of Comfortable Runabout Vehicle is emphasised by the plush interior and good suspension, while a lighter weight, more responsive steering and aerodynamic body shape of the newest generation makes handling a breeze.

Audi Q7

The longest of our fantastically well-equipped 7 seater 4x4s, the Audi Q7, is still relatively easy to handle, thanks to its (optional) all-wheel steering which provides a tidy turning circle the same size as SUVs that are nearly half a metre shorter.

Hills are not a problem, with steep inclines providing the opportunity for this accomplished off-roader to show off its excellent grip and handling.

As the largest of the Q range of SUVs, the Audi Q7 can comfortably accommodate 7 adults who can enjoy a touch of luxury with a well-appointed interior boasting a digital, customisable instrument panel; convenient wireless charging; and capacity for a second Bluetooth phone interface.
