How to find the right 7-seater SUV

Aug 24, 2017

Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 7 Seater
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:

Toyota Highlander
Toyota Sequoia
Toyota 4Runner

With the Sequoia and Highlander, 8-seater options are also available.

Here’s the lowdown on what all three vehicles offer to help you choose the right vehicle.

Highlander: Taking the High Road

Toyota Highlander in Midnight Black Metallic - Available 7 Seater 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 Limited V6 AWD or the Highlander Hybrid V6. 

With the options of All-Wheel Drive and Birds Eye View Camera along with Toyota Safety Sense™ P as standard, the 2018 Highlander & Highlander Hybrid have the safety, performance, and fun factor to keep your entire family content and comfortable through every adventure.

Designed with rugged terrain in mind, this off-road powerhouse comes with a 270 HP 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.

Features like heated front seats and the power moonroof mean that wherever you want to go, this rugged yet refined seven-seater is the perfect travel companion.

Sequoia: Up For Anything

The 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, 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.

The Minivan Alternative

SUVs aren’t the only option when looking for a seven seater 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.

The Toyota Sienna boasts a fuel-efficient, 3.5-litre V6 direct-injection engine. It’s also the only minivan with All-Wheel Drive available. Inside the Sienna, the lounge seating and available Dual-View Blu-ray Disc Entertainment Center ensures a relaxed carpool, from school to the soccer field.

Options For Everyone

Your habits, responsibilities, and routine have a considerable impact on whether a seven-seater SUV or minivan is the right vehicle for you. Whatever your decision, though, there’s no need to compromise on safety or style. In fact, choosing a vehicle with quality, durability, and reliability in mind has never been easier.
