Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander 2018


The Hyundai Santa Fe is only an occasional seven-seater and more of an everyday five-seater with a nice big boot. Three child seats fit across the second-row seats, but there are no top tethers in the third row so I couldn’t install any child seats there. When using just five seats, the boot is a bit smaller than the Mazda CX-9 and bigger than the Kia Sorento but it’s tiny when using all seven seats. Read More


2018 Nissan X-Trail Ti AWD

In the five-seat Nissan X-Trail Ti, legroom is much better than the seven-seat ST-L model I also tried, with plenty of space for tall adults in front of rear-facing child seats, but I could only fit two child seats as it’s not very wide! Boot space is better than the Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V and VW Tiguan Read More

The Lexus RX350L is a seven-seat luxury SUV with four top tethers and Isofix in two of the seats but with child seats installed in the second row, there really wasn’t any legroom in the first and third rows. On the upside, boot space is comparable to a Mazda CX-9 and Nissan Pathfinder, and bigger than a Kia Sorento or Skoda Kodiaq Read More
