Non diesel 7 seaters

I'm sure there used to be a separate place to post about cars on mumsnet but I can't find it.

We have a Ford Galaxy it's a 2008 diesel, we'd like to replace it with a newer car. I love my Galaxy but all the models with a spec we like are diesel and with recent publicity about the health and environmental problems we'd prefer not to buy another diesel.

Anyone have any recommendations?

We like the petrol Kia Carens (seems nice to drive, have already got a Kia so know they are reliable and have a 7 year warranty so you can get a 2nd hand one and still get warranty) but not sure whether we can fit our 3 child seats across the back seat. They changed the model at the end of last year I think so if you go for the previous model you might get a good discount. We were looking at the new one and the petrol models are in short supply (prob 'cos nobody wants a diesel) so if you want it brand new you have to wait abt 11 weeks for it to be delivered.

We've got a petrol Grand C-Max and I've been really happy with it. We've got 3 car seats across the back (not isofix though), I LOVE the sliding rear doors and I like that it's not as big as a Galaxy. We've only got 3 children though, so only use the boot seats for ferrying friends around etc.

It's only a 1.6L so is woefully underpowered if fully laden and going up anything resembling a hill, but I would happily replace with a slightly more powerful petrol version.

We're buying a caddy maxi life 7 seater and you can get petrol versions. Having looked for a while we're still buying diesel but getting a model new enough to have a euro 6 engine. Cars built after 2015 or 2016 all have them.
