The thought of purchasing a large car or SUV might seem a bit alien, particularly if you have always owned a hatchback or an estate.
Often, one of the first ideas of large family cars or SUV’s is that they aren’t attractive or enjoyable to drive, but that is most definitely a thing of the past.
If you are an adventurer at heart or enjoy a hobby that requires you to transport heavy or large equipment with you, then you may need to rethink your every day vehicle.
There are a range of cars that can be used for everyday use such as commuting or travelling to and from the shops, that can also cope well on off road adventures.
The SEAT Tarraco has an off road mode that can be activated when necessary, offering the best driving performance for the road surface.
Surfing is one of Cornwall’s favourite pastimes and it’s no surprise when you consider the range of beautiful beaches we have to choose from. With this popular pastime comes awkward sized equipment and baggage.
You’ll likely be transporting a surfboard, a wetsuit, spare clothing for your journey home and any additional accessories, so the need for load space in your vehicle is an absolute must.
If you have a large family who will be accompanying you on your travels, you will certainly want to consider a seven seater car. A seven seater will allow all of the family to travel in comfort, without the need to be hemmed in by luggage or equipment.
One of the main benefits of seven seater cars is that the seating and layout is often modular, allowing you to create additional space to accommodate your equipment.
The SEAT Tarraco is a fine example of a seven seater that offers a striking design, modular seating and driving modes that include off-road and snow options, so you are always ready to take on the day. The Tarraco is also packed with a range of safety features, including Lane Assist and a Digital Cockpit to name a few. The ISOFIX points allow easy and safe connectivity of child seats, offering complete peace of mind when travelling with young children. For a seven seater vehicle, the SEAT Tarraco is incredibly stylish and elegant with a host of technology features to keep you and your passengers entertained, including an 8” touchscreen and a Digital Cockpit as standard, offering premium specification in an affordable model.
The SEAT Alhambra offers the best of both worlds; a seven seater family car or a spacious car capable of transporting additional cargo or bulky gear. The seven seater specification may come in handy when it comes to car sharing or doing the school run during the week and a true workhorse on the weekend or during the holidays. The sliding doors of the SEAT Alhambra make it easy for passengers, and particularly those with children, to access easily and safely, without the risk of damaging other vehicles.
For those who need even more space than a seven seater vehicle, or if you are likely to be making long journeys on a regular basis, you might benefit from the Renault Trafic Passenger, which can seat nine. This would best suit small groups or businesses who will be transporting bulky equipment on a day-to-day basis. For a nine seater the Renault Trafic Passenger does not compromise on features, with the 7” touchscreen navigation system and rear view camera, sliding side doors for easy access even in tight spaces and a modular seating system, meaning you can configure the vehicle layout to your own specification on every journey. The Trafic Passenger also comes with a range of driver assist features, including rear parking sensors and hill start assist for those more remote areas. There is also the option to add keyless entry, making it easy to enter the vehicle, even when carrying all your activity equipment. The MediaNav touchscreen includes Bluetooth and DAB as standard, keeping your passengers connected and entertained at all times.
For seven seats at an incredibly affordable price, the Dacia Jogger demands attention. Continuing Dacia's tradition of providing quality vehicles at an attractive price point, and with it's extended interior configurations it makes for a fantastic family car in any situation. The seats can be easily removed or folded to support anywhere between two and seven occupants and make room for just about anything you could think to transport. Contrary to what the price may suggest the Jogger is packed with the latest tech, including a fully equipped touchscreen navigation system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and handy driver aids such as an Electronic Parking Brake, Parking Sensors and Hill Start Assist.
