The Most Comfortable Used 8-Passenger Vehicles

If you love to travel in a big company or have a large family, you cannot do without a reliable roomy vehicle. All cars for 8 passengers are divided into:

  • high-capacity station wagons,
  • minivans,
  • SUVs.

At our car lot in Indianapolis, there are many used eight-seaters to choose from. We prepared a list of the best 8-passenger vehicles from our inventory, which includes both minivans and SUVs.

Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler Pacifica is the leader among 8 passenger minivans in an affordable price segment.

The car is distinguished by its dimensions, capacity, stability on the road. It has enough space for 8 people, as well as for cargo, that can be placed in the spacious trunk. The engine has a capacity of 287 horsepower, which is quite enough for comfortable trips in almost any mode, except for complete off-road conditions.

In general, this model can be called a travel car for the whole family. It has plenty of room and very comfortable seats. There are many airbags for safety. According to the well-known Euro NCAP rating, Chrysler Pacifica received the maximum rating – five stars out of five.

As for the equipment, everything here is at the required level – cruise control, climate control, alloy wheels, monitors in the cabin for the driver and passengers. In the maximum configuration of this model, individual seat heating is provided.

Dodge Grand Caravan

Grand Caravan is an acclaimed classic on American roads, and you can find a variety of trims in the dealerships of Indianapolis.

This minivan is popular for its economy and reliability. Even the highest trim model with an automatic transmission consumes no more than 10 liters of fuel in urban driving mode. For vehicles of such capacity and dimensions, this figure can be called very low. The engines for this model are available in 3.3-liter and 4-liter versions.

The interior fully meets the needs of a large family. The car can be turned into a small truck by folding the rear seats and freeing up a lot of space. Thanks to the special design of the tailgate, loading operations will be extremely fast and easy. Another advantage of the Grand Caravan is the suspension quality. The model is ready for poor-quality roads and handles well on any terrain. This is critical when traveling long distances on country and dirt roads.

Chevrolet Tahoe

The third place in the best 8-passenger vehicle ranking goes to the Tahoe SUV.

The latest generation received an updated body and interior. The car is large enough, which has a positive effect on roominess. Inside, with due comfort, it can accommodate eight people of the average constitution. They will not disturb each other with their elbows and knees, which is typical for multi-seat SUVs. The interior of the Tahoe is thought out to the smallest detail, from the acoustic insulation of the windshield to the numerous electric drives. It has a triple door seal along with ubiquitous noise insulation, an abundance of niches with outlets for mobile gadgets, a technically advanced multimedia system, complemented by an LCD panel, climate control for several zones, and a refrigeration unit.

The safety of an 8-seater vehicle for the whole family is also doing well. In addition to the basic set of 6 airbags, there is one more airbag in the central part of the passenger compartment, which prevents a collision of passengers. This also includes a reinforced base frame, adaptive cruise control, and intelligent assistants for a wide variety of driving scenarios.

Toyota Highlander

Under the hood, the Highlander has a 295 hp V6 petrol engine, four-wheel drive , and an 8-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter.

When choosing an 8-passenger car for a family, you should define the main tasks it should perform:

  • A minivan is more than enough to get around the city;
  • For tourist trips, where rough terrain is supposed, it is more expedient to look towards SUVs.

A family car must be reliable, safe, and inexpensive to maintain. Another point is the practical upholstery, as traveling with children is always accompanied by snacks. Therefore, it is better to exclude premium and finicky materials right away. Otherwise, you can go broke on the dry cleaning of the salon.

A family car has to be versatile. It should be convenient for single trips and traveling altogether. Come to Indy Auto Man for a test drive with your family and buy the best used eight-seater where everyone will feel safe and comfortable.
