What’s the best new seven-seat SUV for me?

What Car? - - Advice -

I’d like a new seven-seat SUV. I’m not fussed about fuel type or en­gine size, but it must have an au­to­matic gear­box, sat-nav, elec­tric heated leather front seats (with a mas­sage func­tion if pos­si­ble), an elec­tric tail­gate and a panoramic sun­roof.

I’ve been look­ing at the Nis­san Qashqai, Nis­san X-trail, Seat Ateca and Volk­swa­gen Tiguan, but I would be happy to con­sider any other ve­hi­cle that you think is suit­able.

We’d rule out the Qashqai and Ateca, be­cause they can’t be had with seven seats, while there’s too lit­tle leg room in the third row of the X-trail.

How­ever, the Skoda Ko­diaq and Volk­swa­gen Tiguan Allspace are well worth look­ing at; both fea­ture seven seats, can be spec­i­fied with all the things you want and have high-qual­ity in­te­ri­ors.

Our 2018 Large SUV of the Year, the Peu­geot 5008, would be our top choice, though, be­cause it com­bines a high-qual­ity, su­perbly equipped in­te­rior with a comfy ride and tidy han­dling.

To get a nappa leather-lined, elec­tri­cally ad­justable driver’s seat with a mas­sage func­tion, you’ll need to pick range-top­ping GT trim. This is avail­able only with a 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel en­gine and an eight-speed au­to­matic gear­box.

At present, you can save at least £2799 on the £35,729 list price of the 5008 2.0 Blue­hdi GT with What Car?’s on­line New Car Buy­ing ser­vice.
