    Spacious 4-wheel drive

    Hubby and I are looking to buy another car, a 4 wheel drive that is good for snow. We went to Toyota because he is interested in getting a Highlander or a 4Runner. I am happy with this choice too but when I saw the two cars.. umm I was expecting full 7 seats. I was highly dissapointed. The three seats in the back could hardly fit 3 people (not the very back). The very back seats could hardly fit two people comfortably. He doesn't want to buy a huge SUV like umm Sequia or someting because of the gas. We don't want to buy a mini van too.

    What other options are we left with?? A reasonably prices 4-wheel drive that also gives us comfortable 7 seats?

      In most SUV's and Minivan's the very last seat is generally a bench. If you're really looking to seat adults in the back then you'll have to go American; either Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition or Excursion. Dodge had a Durango, but not sure if adults can sit in the back.

      I'm not sure how big a Toyota Sequoia is but it may be able to seat adults in the back.

        You could check out the new Chevy Tahoe or the GMC Yukon.
        Or how about the Honda Pilot? That's a really good car actually!
        And you'll actually get seating for 7 very comfortably and 8 is possible too (If people aren't too big).
        I'd lean towards the Tahoe because I've driven the Tahoe LTZ with all the bells and whistles.
        Excellent cars, excellent space and really freaking comfortable, you must test drive one.
        If you're thinking fuel economy then they come with VCM where they run on 4 cylinders instead of 8 cylinders.
        So save you a whole lot of fuel until you decide to punch it.

          Yeah I would definitely check out Pilot too. I don't really like the box look the car has but that's just how it is..
          We have actually strictly decided on no American Cars. Whatever reason, my husband just doesn't want it.. We are only left with Pilot then huh

            Well maybe you need to make him check out reviews and take a test-drive.
            American cars (More specifically Chevrolets) aren't notorious for the relative lack of quality and reliability.
            The newer ones are pretty good. I say convince him to take one out for a test-drive.

            Or as Si4e has mentioned, check out the Toyota Sequoia. Its a spacious 7/8 seater.
            I suggest taking them for a test-drive; the Sequoia, Pilot and the Tahoe (Which I still maintain is the best one out of these particular options).

              Toyota also has the Land Cruiser.

                ^^ Too expensive

                Sequoia takes too much gas.. we travel a lot. Isn't Pilot the same.

                    Tahoe. Better economy and it's more comfortable than all the other options listed.

                            Spacious was a pre-requisite; She wanted something with proper room for at least seven adults.
                            An X-Trail is tiny compared to full-size SUV's.
