Also 7 in my Acadia which we have had 7 in it at least once, and 6 a couple of times. But we've had a third row for much of the girls' lives- since we lived out in the country I felt obligated to do most of the transportation for friends coming over. I suggested to DH with them being in their early 20s now that we downsize but with moving them in/out of apartments, and maybe upcoming grandchildren someday, we'll continue to want the extra space.
I have a Honda Odyssey that seats 8, but I don't think we've ever actually had 8 passengers in it. The middle seat of the middle row folds down to be a console and I'm pretty sure we have never sat it up for a passenger.
4 but if my husband is in the car more like 3 unless who sits behind him is a kid.
Same answer for my husband's car.
This is actually a consideration when we were looking for cars back in the spring. Deciding between a 3rd row or not. However in the suv class we were looking at the 3rd row was largely useless with only a small child being able to realistically use it. We thought it would largely be there for the additional cargo space (with the 3rd row folded down) and just used in the off chance/"good to have" thing but we're still very conflicted on that.
Labeled seating for X and realistic seating for X are totally different lol.
I voted 3-4, but it's a Fiat cabrio. Two is the maximum number of comfortable passengers. I've sat in the backseat before for more than five minutes and I'd do it again only in an emergency. A dire emergency.
I have a Nissan Rogue, there are 5 seat belts but if you wanted to push it, you could put a person in the very back cargo area if they were small. They do (or did) make them with three seats so they are built to hold more than 5.
