Family haulers face off! Hyundai Santa Fe v Kia Sorento v Mazda CX-8 v Peugeot 5008 v Skoda Kodiaq v Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.
There is now no shortage of respectable 7-seat SUVs on the market for the driver who needs to haul a big family, or the kids and their friends. We've selected a handful of major contenders to see which is worth you spend.
All of these are positioned as five-seaters with small, stowable third seating rows that can be pulled up and thrown into work at the drop of a hat. Many brands have identified this ‘5+2’ market as a sweet spot.
We’ve tested all of these in high-end specification levels, with the pricing as tested ranging between about $58,000 and $61,500 before on-road costs. Naturally, all can be had for much less if you’re willing to forgo some luxuries.
