Half of the vehicles listed won't comfortably carry a family of six, especially to the grocery store. A pack of water would barely fit in the cargo area left over from having kids in the third row.

Seven people are NOT going to fit in most of the cars on the list, possibly 6 some, most just 5. When you start talking about 7 people and leave off the Suburban / Yukon XL twins, I know you aren’t serious. I have spent days looking at nearly every one of these cars and this list is trash. For example the Mazda CX-9 is NOT a 7 passenger car. It is 5 at max. I tried to get in the 3rd row and realized it was for groceries only, since the truck was a joke. Lastly, to say the Tribeca is 7 passenger lets me know the writer hasn’t tried these cars in person, with 7 people.

That is a list of every minivan and midsize crossover vehicle made. If you really have to seat 7 full size humans, you need either a minivan or a full size SUV (Suburban, Expedition, Excursion, Tahoe etc). A crossover is just not going to work if those 7 people need to travel more than a few blocks.

I've always wondered, as a motorist, just exactly how I'm supposed to respond or change the rules of the road when I see a "Baby on Board" sticker on a mini-van. Can anybody shed some light on this? How about "Passenger on Board" or "Old Person on Board" or "Eggs on Board" or ????? Seems like kinda a non-issue to me.

Out of all the cars listed I know two will fit a family of 5 comfortably with a large family dog. The Quest and the Flex. Both cars were comfortable for my brothers family with three people well over 6 feet and two over 5'8". The Explorer fits everyone but the back is a little cramp but the family loves their Explorer, dogs favorite car. The Quest was comfortable they had problems with interior build quality, (2004 model) though they drove it for over 200,000 miles. Now they have a Flex love the bells and whistles comfortable and well built. My brother who has a notoriously bad back liked the Quest and Flex's seat support and the fact that they were heated didn't hurt. I know the people across the street from me had to trade in their Caravan for an Expedition so they could fit 4 or 5 car/booster seats and their large dog. Both families looked at several of these models and they just didn't have the interior space needed.
