New car...help!

So we need to upgrade our car early 2017 and are also planning a 3rd child. We also have very large dog. Currently we have an estate which we love but with two car seats on back there is hardly room for a person in between let alone a 3rd child seat. The boot is ok but it is tight with dog and buggy so we had to invest in a roof box. So we are going bigger! Both DH and I prefer the 4x4 style (not the price tag) but are open to the fact that size wise it may not be possible. Ideally would like the option of 7 seater as well. The voice xc90 is my ideal but I just don't think we can afford it. Budget no more that £15K and we don't really want more the 45,000 on the clock. The more realistic option seems to be the VW Sharan. Any advice or opinions that might help me?!

We've recently had this dilemma and our research took us down this route...

Land Rover Discovery - hard to find one under £15k but if you come across a gem, it's got 7 seats.

Volvo XC 90 - 7 seats but there's not much boot when the back row of seats are up.

Defender 110 - we fitted 3 car seats in and the boots was mahoosive for our Labradoodle.

The alternatives are; VW caravelle - hard to find one with under 45k miles though at £15k...but again, worth a look.

Mitsubishi Outlander - interesting option.
