10 of the Best Seven Seater SUVs - Autobytel's 7 Passenger SUV List
though more and more Americans are downsizing to save money, there is still
a need for 7 passenger SUVs and Crossovers. Let's take a look at 10 of the
best seven seater SUVs in the U.S.A.
10) Lincoln MKT - The Lincoln MKT is a luxury version of the Ford Flex with
a total cargo area of over 70 cubic feet. The engine that powers the MKT is
3.7 liter V-6 but there is also a 3.5 liter ecoBoost V-6 engine option. The Lincoln MKT can
be had with AWD too. But what really makes the MKT stand out from the crown
of seven seater SUVs is its unique styling featuring a massive front
9) Buick Enclave -- The Buick Enclave is a worth advisory for some of the 7
Passenger Luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX. The 3.6 liter direct injection
V-6 is a proven commodity having over 280 horsepower plus the ability
to tow 4500 lbs. Where this seven passenger SUV really shines is the
interior. The Enclave is comprised of high quality materials and top notch
technology which help the Enclave make it to the list of 10 best seven
8) Subaru Tribeca -- The Tribeca is Subaru's largest vehicle offering
boasting AWD and room for 7 passengers. With tons of interior room the
Tribeca is not only an effective hauler but it also a capable off-road SUV.
The 3.6 liter V-6 makes over 250 horsepower which is enough
to get the job done.
7) Acura MDX -- The Acura MDX is one of those vehicles that absolutely
nailed its mission statement by being a reliable premium SUV that is built
to last. Standard Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive makes this a sure footed
seven seater SUV. The 3.7 liter V-6 engine provides plenty of power. The
Acura MDX is one of those rare vehicles that owners want to keep forever.
6) Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition is a true body-on-frame SUV that
can handle 7 or 8 passengers and their gear thanks to 108 cubic feet or
storage. This large SUV can also tow over 9000 lbs. The 301 horsepower 5.4 liter V-8
might not be the most cutting edge but its works well when mated to the
6-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition is an old school SUV and you
can negotiate deep discounts on this seven seater vehicle.
5) Honda Pilot -- Honda was a little bit late to the SUV game with the
Pilot but they have quickly emerged as a measuring stick for other brands.
The 250 horsepower
3.5 liter V-6 engine is the smallest in the group but it does feature
cylinder deactivation to help save fuel. Perhaps the greatest attribute of
this 7 passenger SUV is that it's very easy to drive for its size. Honda
understands how these SUVs are being used so they made this one of the best
on the market for families.
4) Infiniti JX -- When Infiniti launched the 7 passenger JX crossover,
their #1 objective was to give shoppers a viable alternative to the Acura
MDX. Early sales success indicates they have a winner on their hands. The
aggressive styling, cutting edge entertainment, and trick motorized second
row make the JX one great choice as the best seven seater SUVs. The
Infiniti JX is built for comfort and the CVT trans eliminates shifting so
that the 3.5 liter V-6 engine keeps all 265 horses running smoothly.
3) Mazda CX-9 -- The Mazda CX-9 has remained relatively unchanged since its
debut back in 2007. Although this seven seater SUV is one of the oldest, it
still represents a great value. The 3.7 liter V-6 makes 273 horsepower and is mated to a
6-speed automatic. What the CX-9 may lack in flash more than makes up in
the areas of reliability and overall value. Mazda may be known more for
their Zoom Zoom cars but they can also make some great family automobiles
that can transport up to 7 people.
2) Nissan Armada -- When Nissan launched the Armada, the intention was to
put a dent in Suburban and Expedition sales by providing a full-sized truck
based vehicle with Japanese engineering. The Armada's 5.7 liter V-8 engine
is more than capable of carrying 7 passengers, their luggage, and a towing
a larger object weighing over 9000 lbs. While there are many 7 seater SUVs
and crossovers out there, few can transport them as comfortably as the
1) Chevrolet Suburban -- At the top of the Autobytel best seven passenger
car list is the Chevy Suburban. This is one of the longest running
nameplates in the automotive world spanning many decades. There is a reason
for this; the Suburban can carry 7 or 8 passengers, all their gear, and
more with a very comfortable ride.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/hyundai/santa-fe/?id=32972 The 2013
Hyundai Santa Fe is a brand new redesign that makes this the 3rd generation
automobile. It's hard to believe that the Santa Fe came out back in 1998.
Back then there were not many crossovers on the market yet. Now that
practically every automobile manufacturer has a crossover, Hyundai is
playing it smart. They have gotten rid of the Veracruz model and then
Hyundai has created a long wheel base and a short wheel base Santa Fe.
Prices start at $24,450.
There are 2 different engine options available on the 2013 Santa Fe Sport.
The first is a direct injected 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 190
horsepower and 181
lb-ft. of torque. The second engine is a 2.0 liter turbocharged and gasoline direct injected motor
that makes 264 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of
torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is
31 MPG combined for the turbo and 33 MPG
combined for the naturally aspirated engine.
On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a great 8-inch Navigation
as an option. The panoramic sunroof is ultra cool and lets rear passengers
enjoy the fresh air and sunlight. The Santa Fe Sport comes standard with
many great features like cruise control, power windows and locks,
Bluetooth, and steering wheel mounted audio controls to name a few. Safety
wise the Santa Fe comes with 7 airbags, stability control, traction
control, and anti-lock brakes. These items are all standard on the 2013
Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
Many improvements have been made and maybe the most important is the
reduction in weight. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe weighs 266 lbs. less than
the previous model. That weight reduction has a positive effect on fuel
economy. The Santa Fe Sport can carry up to 5 people. The rear seat is a
40/20/40 split bench making for a versatile crossover SUV. You can order
the Santa Fe in either FWD or AWD configurations.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is priced right alongside its competition.
But with the Santa Fe you get more standard features for your money along
with a great 10 year 100k mile warranty.
