Five seven-seater for less than € 7,000

Is there a small one on the way that makes the current family car no longer sufficient? Or do you just want to be able to accommodate more people in your car for when you can go out with your friends again? Techzle lists five used seven-seaters for less than € 7,000.

Because we have all been at home for over nine months, there is probably a real baby wave coming. The first signs of this are already visible in some hospitals. For some families, this may mean that the current five-seater family car is no longer sufficient. You can go here for tips about the right child seats, but then it is nice if you can also put them in a decent place. Of all the cars below, only the Volvo V70 is not equipped with Isofix mounting points. She does have the rest of the cars, but it always pays to check which seats are available and which are not. Nowadays, only seats with Isofix attachment points are sold, but it is not yet prohibited to fasten the seats with the car seat belt.

1. Ford Galaxy – € 6,945

The Ford Galaxy is by far the widest offer in this list. In the Netherlands, Ford nowadays only supplies the Explorer as a seven-seater, but from 2006 the brand had no less than two seven-seater in the then immensely popular MPV segment with the S-Max and Galaxy. This copy is also the second generation of the Galaxy. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 146 hp and 190 Nm of torque. With this power source you can also refuel with bioethanol if desired. It is not a stripe puller, but a sprint to 100 km / h in 11.2 seconds and a top speed of 194 km / h are smooth enough. Furthermore, this copy in the Ghia version is equipped with comfort-enhancing things such as navigation and climate control.

2. Toyota Verso – € 6,450

The Toyota Verso is less spacious than the Galaxy, but still manages to accommodate five children. Just like Ford, Toyota no longer has MPVs on offer. The only seven-seater the brand still has are the Prius +, the Highlander and the Land Cruiser. Initially, this model went through life as the Corolla Verso, it was then under the Avensis Verso. With the disappearance of the latter it simply became ‘Verso’. The 1.8 was the most powerful petrol engine you could get with 131 hp and 170 Nm of torque. This engine is known as very reliable, which means that with 167,769 kilometers on the odometer, this car probably has a long life ahead of it. On board are also black leather upholstery, climate control and navigation.

3. Volkswagen Touran – € 5,950

Opposite the Ford Galaxy, Volkswagen had the Sharan (which, incidentally, shared their platforms earlier) and a step lower was the Touran. Today, the Tiguan Allspace occupies that place. This Touran is from 2009 and has a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 102 hp and 148 Nm of torque under the hood. In terms of power, the 1.4 TSI may be a better choice, but that block has a less reliable reputation. In any case, the interior matches the exterior well, because light gray is what the clock strikes. The Touran has cruise control and climate control on board, but navigation is not there. Fortunately, the smartphone now offers solace.

4. Dacia Lodgy – € 6,995

The cars above are all at least 11 years old. This Dacia Lodgy is from 2013 and is therefore quite a bit younger. His mileage is also quite low at 78,774 km. The Lodgy is still in the price list at Dacia and is today by far the cheapest option when you want to get into a new seven-seater. With Dacia you do not have to expect the ultimate in luxury, but nevertheless this copy has air conditioning, navigation and rear parking sensors on board. If you settle for less trinkets, you can of course also go for a Logan MCV. In that case, you are even cheaper.

5. Volvo V70 – € 4,949

Are you horrified at the thought of an MPV? No worries! This Volvo V70 also has seven seats. In that case, the two rear passengers sit backwards in the trunk. Mercedes-Benz, among others, offered a similar option on the E-class Estate, so you could also scour the used car market for that. You can also find it in a generation of older V70. On holiday, however, there is not much room left for the luggage. The offspring that takes place should also not be too big. Anyway, the driver also wants something. In the nose is a 2.5-liter five-cylinder with 168 hp and 230 Nm of torque. This allows the Volvo to reach 100 km / h in 9 seconds and accelerate to 210 km / h. Bonus: the engine produces a nice roll and it is fiscally advantageous to drive as a young timer.
