These are models that have a third row of seats for a contained price.
If you need more than five seats, you are in the right place, because we are going to talk about the 5 cheapest cars with seven seats. These are models that have a third row of seats for a contained price, being able to take the whole family on the weekend with them. There are not many options that we find in the market with this configuration but they are not few either, being able to choose between different types of car.
The cheap word invokes the Dacia models, we have already said it more than once. And it is that it is talking about affordable models and appearing one of their cars. It is undoubtedly one of their claims, although it is not the only one. Dacia has managed to position itself as a “low-cost” brand, but it is much more than that, it would not be fair to classify it there. In this case we are talking about his Dacia Jogger, an affordable seven-seater car.
It really is the cheapest you can find on the market. With a starting price of just 21,000 euros, you have enough car to travel with six occupants plus you as the driver. A car that also has different mechanics capable of adapting to any client. And as we said, the Dacia of today is not the Dacia of years ago, and its quality has been improving over the years until reaching this point.
The Dacia Jogger measures 4.55 meters long and 1.90 meters wide, and has a wheelbase of 2.89 meters. The model is available in LPG Eco-G 100 CV and gasoline TCe 110 CV versions. Likewise, it has a Hybrid 140 variant, a set that has an electric motor and another 1.6-liter gasoline engine coupled to a new multimode gearbox without a clutch with four relationships for the combustion engine.
The DFSK 580 is one of the members of the Chinese offensive that little by little we are getting to know. The brands of this country have seen in Europe a place to settle, and little by little they are all arriving with their line of products. In this case, this model offers seven seats for a contained price, and not only that. One of its virtues is that for a low starting price it mounts elements that its rivals usually have as an option.
The 580 model of the Chinese brand is a D-segment SUV with up to 7 seats, a car that measures 4.68 m long, 1.84 m wide and 1.71 m high. In addition, it has a battle of 2.78 m, all for a starting price of about 24,000 euros. Among other things, it offers a multifunction touch screen, parking assistant and an intelligent opening and starting system, with an HD sound system.
In its mechanical range we find the 1.5 Turbo engine with 146 hp and 210 Nm of maximum torque at 4,000 rpm, which is always associated with a CVT-type automatic transmission with 6 fictitious relationships. All this always transmitted to the front wheels.
Toyota Proace City Verso
In this case, we are talking about a car with great space and the possibility of seven seats that comes from the commercial segment. Given its focus, the cabin takes advantage of every centimeter to offer comfort and space to its occupants, and in this version one more row of seats to occupy. The only “but” that we can find in the Toyota Proace City Verso is that its trunk is one of the worst on the list.
The model has different bodies, but for this variant the same measures as the L2 apply. And it is that while in the short wheelbase we are talking about 4.4 meters long and up to 3.8 cubic meters of capacity, in the long body we are left with 4.75 meters long and up to 4.4 cubic meters of cargo volume .
This Toyota sells an electric version, a car that coexists with diesel variants. These are the few models in its segment to offer such a range. The electric variant mounts a 50 kWh capacity lithium-ion battery that powers a single front electric motor with 136 horsepower and 260 Nm of torque. According to the brand, the WLTP cycle offers up to 280 kilometers.
Renault Grand Scenic
One of the great names in the minivan segment is the Renault Grand Scenic, and it really is the first pure minivan that we are talking about in this ranking. Gone are the times in which the cars that offered seven seats were mostly of this configuration, since at present it is the SUVs that have also prevailed in the market for seven-seater cars.
A couple of years ago this model offered different mechanics, with a 1.3 gasoline engine that offered 140 and 160 horsepower, and 120 and 150 horsepower diesel engines to buy. But behind are those times of great mechanical offers, eliminating the diesel brand from the list to stay only with the 1.3 TCe gasoline engine of 140 horsepower or 160 CV.
And the truth is that little life is left for the minivan, with the unstoppable rise of the SUV. In the configurator we can find it from 29,145 euros in a Techno finish with a 140 horsepower engine and manual gearbox. With 160 horsepower it goes from 33,000 euros.
As it happened to us with the Toyota, the Volkswagen Caddy comes from segments focused on the commercial world. It is another car with great versatility, since it combines its comfortable interior space that aims to make it very easy if you use it to work with the finishes of a version for use related to passenger transport. In addition, its price does not skyrocket.
The Volkswagen model measures 4.50 meters long, 1.85 wide and 1.83 high, dimensions that we can use for both commercial and leisure use. Although of course, the seven-seater variant is focused on leisure, a version that offers interesting equipment.
In this case we do find diesel engines, and specifically we are talking about a 2-liter turbocharged TDI diesel engine with 122 horsepower. In addition, it is also sold in gasoline, with the 1.5-liter block. Of course, none is cheap.
