These are the 10 best 6-seat SUVs for 2022

Kia Telluride Gray Front 3/4

SUVs are all the rage right now; they are spacious and practical, and there are an endless amount of options to meet the needs of virtually any buyer worldwide. While they can be a little boring, automakers strive to create the most exciting SUVs possible. Take Ferrari for example, they have yet to unveil their Purosangue SUV, but it is rumored to be powered by a naturally aspirated V12, much like the one in the Ferrari 812 Superfast, and even BMW is stepping up their game with extraordinarily powerful SUVs like the X5 M Competition. .

For today’s list, however, we won’t be looking at the fastest SUVs ever made, but rather a look at some of the best SUVs that can accommodate at least 6 passengers. Let’s go there.

10 Mazda CX-9

Mazda is probably one of the most versatile automakers in the world right now. They’ve got their foot in just about every car segment out there, from their Mazda Miata sports car to their fun little Mazda 3 hatch, but when it comes to SUVs, they’ve got plenty to offer too.

They have a wide selection of SUVs ranging from the compact, funky CX-30 to their flagship SUV, the CX-9. It may not be the most exciting to look at, but its cockpit is refined and features some of the most advanced technology available in modern cars – oh, not to mention its 2.5-litre turbo-four produces a sufficient 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque that can take the CX-9 from standstill to 60 mph in just 7 seconds.

9 Volkswagen Atlas

Like Mazda, Volkswagen has also dabbled in various segments of the automotive world, especially in the hot hatch realm with their Golf GTI, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be wise too. The Atlas is the largest vehicle in the Volkswagen range and powertrain options range from a 235 hp four-cylinder engine to a 276 hp V6

Unfortunately, it’s not as well built as the Mazda, but at least it offers comparable performance figures and a much larger cabin, albeit at a small premium.

8 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Jeep’s Grand Cherokee won the hearts of millions worldwide when they introduced the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk a few years ago, but we’re still waiting for them to give us a next-generation performance SUV.

However, the current Grand Cherokee is still far from a boring car. The most powerful engine currently available with the Grand Cherokee L is a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 357 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, and in the real world that means this 7-seat Jeep will take a while. from 0-60. in just 6 seconds, while still being able to tackle rough terrain as you’d expect from a jeep – pretty impressive if you ask us.

7 Alpina XB7

Alpina is BMW’s in-house tuning company, and they’ve worked their magic on countless BMWs over the years, but it’s not often you see them working with large SUVs, but here we are. Based on the pre-facelift BMW X7, the Alpina XB7 features a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine that spits out a monstrous 621 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque.

Alpina has not only modified the powertrain and exterior appearance, but also changed the entire cabin appearance by wrapping all seats and panels in the most luxurious materials. As you might have guessed, an SUV of this size isn’t cheap, and an XB7 has a starting price north of $140,000.

6 Genesis GV80

Genesis is Hyundai’s luxury brand and they are responsible for the most lavish Korean creations such as the G90, and the GV80 is their most famous SUV to date. Not only does it have a striking appearance, but inside it carries the same degree of ambiguity.

The GV80 has some of the strongest rivals ever, including the BMW X6 and the Porsche Cayenne, but overall we’d say the GV80 gives you a lot more bang for your buck. After all, if you put down just over $60,000, you’d receive a 375-horsepower V6-powered GV80 with 7 seats and an interior fit for a king, and the ability to go 60 mph from a standing start in just 5.3 seconds. to achieve.

5 Tesla Model X

If you want to seat up to 7 people and look cool while doing so with doors opening vertically, the Tesla Model X is your go-to option. It’s becoming more and more common to see Teslas on the road by the day, but the Model X still remains one of the coolest SUVs on the market.

If you’re willing to spend an infinite amount of money to catapult you and your passengers to 60 mph in about 2.5 seconds, we highly recommend getting the $140,000 Tesla Model X Plaid, as its main selling point is acceleration. is … well does have 1,020 horsepower at its disposal. Be warned though, the Model X may have some nice quirks and ridiculous features you never knew you wanted, but it also has questionable build quality for a vehicle this expensive.

4 Mercedes-Benz GLS

The GLS is Mercedes-Benz’s most luxurious SUV to date, and it has everything you’d expect from a vehicle with a starting price of $78,900. In its most expensive variant, the GLS 63 AMG, this behemoth is powered by a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that spits out 603 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque sent to all four wheels.

The GLS 63 may not be as lavish as a Maybach-built GLS 600, but it still has enough seating for 7, a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds, an air suspension system that can bounce the whole car in style, and an interior fit for an emperor.

3 Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 is a highly underrated luxury SUV that offers the same technology you would expect from a fine SUV, such as heated seats with massage function, a leather-infused interior, a 360-degree camera and if equipped with a hybrid engine, it feels surreal.

The Volvo XC90’s most powerful trim level is called the “Recharge T8” and combines the power of a 2.0-liter turbo-four, as well as an electric motor for a net total of 455 horsepower and 523 lb-ft of torque. This means that all seven passengers can experience the same amount of g-force when they sprint from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds without drinking too much petrol.

2 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat

Unfortunately, the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat won’t be on sale for much longer because its 710-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 isn’t environmentally friendly enough, but that’s why it’s one of the best. It’s not every day that you come across a 700 hp+ 7-seater SUV with a sound that can only be compared to that of the underworld.

It might not be the fastest, the most luxurious, or even the most affordable SUV on our list today, but it’s certainly one of the coolest SUVs produced – it’s basically a family-friendly muscle car.

1 Kia Telluride

Kia has been producing better cars since the arrival of the Stinger in 2017, and the Telluride is the perfect example of this. Despite its handsome exterior, in its top spec (the SX), the Telluride gives other premium manufacturers like Porsche a real run for their money when it comes to value.

The Telluride SX costs about $45,000, and then you have a punchy, naturally aspirated V6 engine that develops 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, and inside it has heated and cooled second-row seats, as well as nappa leather scattered throughout. , and a self-leveling rear suspension to make commuting and towing as comfortable as possible.
