Three-row SUVs are great for families, especially those who do not want to buy minivans. The three-row SUVs have comfortable seating arrangements, the middle row is accessible for children’s safety, and the back row is perfect for smaller kids. 

As such, three-row SUVs are what is befitting for a large family. But the challenge is that they are often expensive. However, here are the three affordable three-row SUVs you can buy in Nigeria today.

The Hyundai Santa Fe

Another affordable three-row SUV you should consider getting is the Hyundai Santa Fe, with a starting price of $28,000. That’s only slightly above the price of the Outlander. The used models of this vehicle start at around 15 million Naira, while the new models start at around 21 million Naira.

Santa Fe also gets good fuel economy, but the EPA-estimated is 24 city and 26 mpg highway. However, it is also powerful, produces 191 horsepower from its 2.5-litre I4 engine, and is accompanied by an eight-speed automatic transmission instead of a continuously variable transmission.

The Hyundai Palisade
