Best vehicles that seat 5 or more for under $15,000It’s perfectly normal to be on the fence about purchasing a vehicle. There are so many variables to consider: Is the timing right? Will I choose a safe and reliable vehicle? Can my (or our) budget handle monthly payments? A great place to start is by narrowing your options with a few deciding factors.

For instance, today we’re taking two things into consideration the average consumer is aware of: budget and capacity needs. You see, sometimes researching vehicles can leave you with more questions than answers, but that’s not our goal. Below I’ve outlined the best vehicles that seat five or more individuals. They’re also all regularly priced at or below $15,000. 

2011 Buick Enclave

The 2011 Buick Enclave is a four-door SUV that seats up to eight. It has a fuel economy of 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway, and a maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. The vehicle comes with reclining rear seats and manual folding, split bench third row seats, making it a great option for transporting large groups or cargo. 

2010 Nissan Armada

The 2010 Nissan Armada is a four-door SUV (sport utility vehicle) that seats up to eight. This all-wheel drive features a split-folding third row seat, making the Armada optimal for individuals who transport larger groups or larger hobbies. With up to 12 mpg city/18 mpg highway, which is respectable based on the vehicle’s weight and capacities. Drivers claim the Armada drives more like a midsize truck than an SUV. With its 317 horsepower engine, the Armada performs well and is great for towing. 

2010 Ford Edge

The 2010 Ford Edge is a four-door CUV (crossover utility vehicle) with a total seating capacity of five. The 2010 Edge combines the responsiveness and comfort of a sedan with the roominess and versatility of an SUV. This vehicle is available in AWD and FWD. The V6 engine boasts up to 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway. Smaller than the Armada, Ford’s Edge gains a greater mpg with its smaller size. 

2012 Buick Regal

The 2012 Buick Regal is a four-door sedan with seating for up to five. This sleek and comfortable vehicle has a fuel economy of 19 mpg city/31 mpg highway, and it’s anything but generic. The 2012 Regal’s performance is enhanced by its 19-inch tires and 270 horsepower engine. This sedan provides a luxurious drive and strong acceleration. 

2013 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox is a four-door CUV capable of seating five. While noticeably larger than other vehicles in its class, the 2013 Equinox is rated at 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway. This vehicle is known for providing a comfortable ride, good fuel economy, and plenty of passenger space.
