Which is the Best 7-Seater Car for Your Family? 

Seven seater cars are convenient for families as they offer space and storage to fit their growing family – in car terms this will generally refer to a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) or a  Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). We may know MPVs as “minivans” as well. 

Of course, every family is different. So, with a wide choice of seven-seater MPVs and SUVs available in the automotive market, which one suits you? But before we move on further, here are the most obvious differences between MPVs and SUVs to note. 

MPVs versus SUVs

An MPV is designed to fit larger groups of people. MPV can seat between five and seven passengers comfortably, while also having ample space for their luggage. Basically, it’s a minivan that is perfect for growing families as it is great in terms of practicality, safety, and everyday commutes.

An SUV, on the other hand, is designed for rough terrains and surfaces. They usually host great storage space compared to regular cars but with a much stronger, sporty look with an easy driving engine. The SUV is perfect for families who often adventure on rough terrains or off-road situations as this car is equipped with features that ensure comfort and safety through your adventure.

So, which is for you? Here are some questions you should answer before you make your decision.  

  • How big is my family and can they fit in this vehicle?
  • What is this vehicle for and what would my daily driving activities be like?
  • What are the safety features I need in this vehicle?
  • How many things can I carry in this vehicle?

The answers to these questions will help you narrow down your choices based on your needs and wants.

Here’s a quick fun fact: The average size of a Malaysian family is usually between three to five people which consists of a mom, dad, and two or three kids, plus a helper in many cases. So, a seven- or eight-seater car would be the perfect choice. 

Here’s are 7 “Minivans” You Can Upgrade to Fit Growing Families

To help you with your decision-making process, we’ve narrowed down seven five to seven seater cars that are perfect for your family.
