Discover and Compare the Best 7+ Passenger Vehicles

Updated for 2015!

Modern passenger vehicles can be as sleek, sophisticated and luxurious as some high-end vehicles while still being as practical as ever. Families and large groups can comfortably sit 7 or 8 with a third row without sacrificing interior or exterior style, performance or having the latest and most advanced features available.

Below is a list of all the best minivans, SUVs and crossovers (that seat at least 7) that 2015 had to offer. Awards for each category of the 2015 models will be published below the table soon. There are 46 different 7 passenger vehicles offered by Chevrolet, Toyota, Ford other manufacturers, so we have collected all of the most important information to help you compare them. You can sort by price, interior size, head, leg and shoulder room in the 3rd row, fuel efficiency, the number of passengers, whether the seating comes standard or optional and an aggregate rating based on automotive critics’ reviews.

To find out how we determine ratings, you can learn how we calculate them.

Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of this tool:

  • To compare vehicles by a particular manufacturer, enter their name into the search bar
  • Hold down the shift key select and sort 2 columns at once (ex. to compare the MPG of the highest rated vehicles)
  • “std” means that many seats come standard. “opt” denotes that the size is available as an option
  • The 3rd Row Room column is in inches and lists the head, leg and shoulder room in that order.
