The Best 7-seater Cars For Families

If your family is not going to fit on five seats, the 7-seater MPV and SUV segments are where you will be shopping. They all cost less than R700 000, and range from budget friendly MPV's and SUV's to some expensive options considering the economy.

Renault Triber, from R190 900

The 1.0-litre Triber is ridiculously cheap and offers the ideal solution for cash-strapped parents with 3-5 children. You can also rearrange the seating for more cargo room if needed, and the Triber doesn't shy away from poor dirt roads and potholes. 

Suzuki Ertiga, from R241 900

The Suzuki Ertiga is rather barren inside and families can rely on the strength of its proven safety credentials, far superior performance, greater refinement, and ability to handle heavier loads, with a 4-cyl, 1.5-litre petrol engine.

Toyota Rumion, from 245 600

This MPV offers quality motoring on a budget. The newly-launched Toyota Rumion, a Avanza replacement, is a great alternative if you don't have a Suzuki dealership nearby, (the new Rumion is basically a rebadged Ertiga). Pricing starts from R245 600 for the 1.5 S model.

Mitsubishi Xpander, from R299 995

The Mitsubishi Xpander may not be a 4x4 but it's as much of an SUV as it is an MPV, boasting a good amount of ground clearance with excellent suspension, if you like to get out of town on weekends with the family. It's excellent on dirt and gravel.

Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, from R561 600

The Tiguan Allspace has become a bit of a status symbol in the last couple of years. it's priced from R61 600 and is a hit with parents. It's also due for a facelift.

Peugeot 5008, from R624 900

Those who appreciate the finer things in life will fall in love with the 5008's French charms. Featuring a sports steering wheel and stunning European design. The 1,6-litre turbo petrol engine and six-speed automatic gearbox is perfectly  matched to the task of a spacious 7-seater.

Haval H9, from R669 900

Being GWM's premium brand, Haval has made sure to equip its spacious H9 with all the modern conveniences that larger families need. It may be a little thirsty, but it compares favourably to much more expensive and established nameplates.
