How to find the right 7-seater SUV

SUVs offer the total package when it comes to utility and style.  With the extra space to seat seven or even eight people, mid-sized and large SUVs make a great choice when you’re looking for a vehicle to meet the needs of a growing family. If you’re looking for a 7-seater SUV in particular, Toyota has three vehicles that have a 7-seater option; the Toyota Highlander, the Toyota Sequoia and Toyota 4Runner. 8 seat SUV options are also available with the Sequoia and Highlander. Here’s the lowdown on what all three vehicles offer to help you choose the right SUV.

This practical, fun, everyday SUV is designed to take you further in distance, utility, and style. If you’re looking for a larger vehicle, there’s no tradeoff when deciding between the practicality, comfort and available features with this SUV.

Some Highlander models have room for eight, but if you’re looking for a 7-seater SUV, look out for the Highlander XSE AWD, Platinum AWD and Hybrid Platinum AWD. If you need even more space and seating options, the 2021 Toyota Highlander also comes in many 8-seat options.

With the options of All-Wheel Drive and Birds Eye View Camera along with Toyota Safety Sense™ P as standard, the 2021 Highlander & Highlander Hybrid have the safety, performance, and fun factor to keep your entire family content and comfortable through every adventure.

The 2021 Toyota 4Runner is designed with rugged terrain in mind, this off-road powerhouse comes with a 270 HP 4.0 Litre V6 Engine and towing capacity of up to 2,268 kg/5,000 lbs.  The Full-Time 4-Wheel Drive and locking centre differential give you the power and control to take on every type of trail. On a steep incline or slippery surface, the Hill-Start Assist Control will gently apply the brakes to give the driver time to engage the accelerator.

The 2021 Toyota Sequoia is the ultimate in versatility and sophistication. Whether you’re off-road, towing your trailer on a freshly-paved highway or taking the family out to dinner, the Sequoia never compromises on a safe, smooth ride.  A statement SUV with both 7 and 8 seat options, the Sequoia will turn heads no matter the terrain. Its 5.7-litre V8 engine will let you travel more roads than you ever thought possible

The Sequoia keeps up to eight passengers comfortable and comes with four-wheel drive, giving equal power and more stability to all four wheels. You’ll have full control even in low-grip conditions, but your passengers may be too busy enjoying the three-zone independent climate controls, heated front, and second-row seats, and a rear seat entertainment system to even notice the weather.

The Sequoia also comes with Toyota Safety Sense™ P. If you’re looking for a 7-seater version, go for the 4WD Platinum 5.7l Sequoia.

SUVs aren’t the only option when looking for a 7-seat vehicle. Modern minivans are another choice for a spacious ride that is also sleek, sporty, and safe. The Toyota Sienna can seat up to seven or eight passengers plus cargo depending on trim selection, with between 39 to 150 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space, based on seat configuration.
