If you want a new vehicle with three rows of seating, and you’re on a tight budget, your options can become surprisingly limited.

Affordability is the issue. There's no dearth of vehicles offering a handy third row and seating for six, seven, or eight. But once you start shopping for a vehicle with third-row seating, you may find yourself cross-shopping mid-size or larger crossovers—models like the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder, or Chevrolet Traverse, where the price of entry begins, in most instances, above the $30k mark.

Those models are all worth considering as late-model used vehicles; but if you want a brand-new vehicle with a third row good for carrying an extra two or three kids from practice, or making room for the in-laws on the way to dinner, there are a number of options well below that price range. And not all of them involve cutting corners on comfort, performance, or safety.
