The 2019 showed a significant rise in SUV sales comparatively. The strength, comfort and styling of a utility vehicle is being appreciated by the current generation. Along with basic 5-seater SUVs, the 7-seater family cars are being given preference as well. With the extra space and strength, going on a road trip just becomes a piece of cake. SUVs have been top of the sales list for a while now and automakers are ready to cash in on the trend.
One of the major factors in the rise of the SUV sales is its sleek, bold design. Along that comes the comfort and spaciousness of a 7-seater. With cars being relatively cheaper and the current lifestyle, owning a seven seater family car has become more convenient.
