7 Seater Cars for Larger Families
If you often travel as a group larger than 5, it can be fraught with stress when it comes to the logistics of travelling from A to B; do you take two cars and double up on the journey costs? Do you compromise on who travels and who doesn’t?
It makes much more sense to invest in a 7 seater vehicle if you will be making regular trips and it can make things much easier if there’s room for everyone. Whether it’s school runs or a family break, a 7 seater just makes sense.
With most SUV’s and hatchbacks catering to families of 4 or 5 (at a push), it can be hard trying to find a suitable vehicle that can comfortably fit up to 7 adults as well as leaving room for luggage or hobby equipment.
Here's the best seven seater cars for larger families:
Citroen has three 7 seater cars - SpaceTourer, Berlingo and Grand C4 SpaceTourer, all suitable for larger families wanting to head out on weekend adventures.
The Citroen Berlingo comes with either 5 or 7 seats to suit your growing family as well as a range of safety and technology features as standard. All models are equipped with an 8” touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to keep you entertained and connected on your journeys.
Safety features include Active Lane Keeping Assistance, Park Assist and Active City Brake to name a few.
There are also a range of trims to choose from, including Flair and XTR as well as a range of exciting and eye-catching colours, including Deep Blue, Onyx Black and Polar White.
Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer
The Citroen C4 SpaceTourer is a 7 seater SUV and the perfect option for those looking for a modular vehicle. Ideal for growing families, the C4 SpaceTourer has three rear seats that can fold individually, giving more boot space or just additional room for the rear passengers. There’s also three ISOFIX points so plenty of space for multiple children’s car seats.
The boot space as standard is 537 litres, which can be increased by folding down any of the rear seats.
The Plus models come with rear parking sensors, a reversing camera and a foot operated boot as standard, ideal for those who will be making regular journeys with children.
You needn’t worry about handling, as even though the C4 SpaceTourer is larger in size, it is remarkably agile.
The Citroen SpaceTourer is the largest car in the Citroen range and is designed for those who want that executive feel as well as a car that is incredibly practical. The XL version has eight seats, so there’s plenty of room for adults to travel comfortably, even on those longer journeys.
Built for adventures, the Citroen SpaceTourer comes with a 7” touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as a range of safety features, including rear parking sensors, cruise control and 17” alloy wheels on the Flair model.
The hands free sliding doors make it easy for passengers to embark, especially in tight spaces where there is little room to open a door outwards.
The Citroen SpaceTourer is commonly used for corporate or executive travel purposes as there is plenty of space for luggage or equipment to travel safely.
Hyundai Santa Fe
The Hyundai Santa Fe is a good car for larger families who need plenty of space. There is a huge 550 litre boot space so it’s the ideal option for those who will be travelling to children’s football practice or heading on weekend adventures.
The Santa Fe has a truly striking design for a 7 seater SUV, with LED headlights, up to 20” alloys and a plush interior. The second row of seats can slide forward making it easy for passengers to access the rear most seats.
With a Smart Electric Tailgate for ease of access and a host of safety features including Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring and Safe Exit Assist, it’s the ideal option for travelling with young children.
