    Best 7 seater vehicle for family with older kids?

    Our Odyssey is getting on in years so I'm thinking about what our next family car should be. We now live in a very hilly area so AWD would be helpful. 2 adults, 4 kids: 15 and 12 yo that are adult sized, 14 yo with intellectual disabilities who will need a harness vest installed, and 5 yo in a ff harness to booster. Most reviews and guides are about ease of car seat use, which is less applicable at this stage for us. I'm more interested in comfortably and safely fitting larger people.
