Most of the time you probably drive in your car alone or with a passenger or two. However, we all occasionally need to fit more people. Whether you’re a family considering having more children, or a single person with a great group of friends, having access to seven seats (or more!) gives you flexibility for getting where you need to go with a group.
While seven seats used to only be found in minivans or large SUVs, there are currently more options than ever for seven-seat vehicles. When you’re deciding which is right for you, think about your everyday use and when you’ll need all seven seats. If you’re planning to use them regularly, you might opt for a vehicle that has a full third-row, while drivers who only occasionally need seven seats can choose pop-up seats that offer plenty of space but fold away to increase cargo room when you have fewer passengers.
In the market for a bigger car? Here are the best seven-seat SUVs in Rome Pre-Owned inventory for a variety of buyers.
For The Family: The Chevy Traverse
The Traverse has a lot going for it, which is why it’s consistently ranked towards the top of the competitive midsize SUV category. The Traverse has tons of cargo space, but still handles like a car, making this an excellent SUV for buyers who need space but are reluctant to feel like they’re driving a truck. Best of all, it’s an affordable option.
For Those Who Like Luxury: The Buick Enclave
The Enclave provides an upscale option for a seven-seat SUV, with quality materials and plenty of cabin space, even in the third-row. The Enclave is powerful, but as a quiet and smooth ride, making this a seven-passenger SUV that your friends won’t mind climbing in to.
For The Commuters: The GMC Acadia
The Acadia is a good choice because of its above-average fuel economy: up to 21 MPG city and 26 MPG highway. However, for the buyer who will be driving lots of miles and only occasionally needs the extra space, the Acadia remains a great choice.
For the Budget-Conscious Shopper: The Kia Sorento
The Sorento is a top-rated mid-size SUV that is incredibly safe, has an all-wheel drive option. In addition to its low starting price, make it a great choice for budget-conscious shoppers.
