It is a legitimate seven seater, and does so atypically - there's little compromise to overall luggage capacity, so it'd be an ideal companion to any growing family's lifestyle.

Its stature is also equally impressive, with the large size offering you a sense of security, crucial if you are going to be using the vehicle to ferry your precious little ones.

The powerplant that provides the oomph for this Korean SUV is a 1.6 litre turbocharged four banger, supplemented by a hybrid system. The system is good for a combined 228 bhp and 350 Nm of torque.

Despite the power and the heft, this is by no means a sluggish car, and it achieves everything whilst also returning excellent fuel economy. How good?
