Finding an SUV to Carry Lots of Family Members
Seating is quite important when purchasing a people mover and many SUV’s make it easy to carry your entire family in comfort by offering plenty of seating.  Many SUV’s easily have space for 5, however for larger families, you probably will need more space, this is why you should definitely look for 3 row seating.  With 3 rows of seating, you can fit 7 comfortably in your vehicle, more than enough for the average family of 5, plus 2 friends or grand parents.  Some SUV’s even offer seating for more, as they are able to turn cargo space into seats for more passengers.  This usually gives you seating for 9.  While not on every SUV and definitely not on SUV’s that are compact or mid-size for larger SUV’s this feature does exist.

SUV Comforts
Now that you have seating for everyone, make your trip more comfortable with a few entertainment options.  Some of the most popular options include an entertainment center with fold down DVD screening, small LCD screens built in seats to view DVD’s or for gaming and don’t forget GPS navigation systems so you don’t lose your way with your whole family in the back.
