2023 Best Family SUV in Canada

When it comes to family vehicles, SUVs rank among the most popular ones because of two simple reasons: passenger and cargo space. When you have a family to "carry on," on the best sense of the word (and I have two kids), both me and my partner value a lot the fact that the balance between space, cargo and comfort is crucial. So, following, our list of the 2023 Best Family SUV in Canada.

"Family SUV": Key Factors

As I've mentioned before, there are multiple factors that people are specifically looking for when considering acquiring a "family SUV":

  • Comfort: Seats for Kids take a lot of space on the interior of a vehicle. In fact, sometimes more than the one required by an adult. The same goes when your kids are older or even teenagers. It is also easier when your kids are between 5 - 9 than when they are younger or even older.
  • Cargo Space: Diapers, strollers, more groceries to carry than just "a couple," skis, snowboards, toys, more bags when traveling... space is also crucial, even if you have a roof rack/roof box.
  • Seating Capacity: When you have two kids, on an average vehicle, you are 80% full, meaning that you only have room for one extra passenger. Not to mention when your family size is 5. Having a seven-seater in these cases always work amazingly.

2023 Best Family SUV: Seven-Seaters Rank First

And this is really hard to argue. If you are looking for a family vehicle, every single seven-seater will catch your attention. If by default, your car will always be almost full, the chance to be moving around with extra friends and family on your vehicle will make you strongly consider these.
