What 4x4 is best to replace our Mitsubishi L200?

We have £15,000 to replace our 2008 Mitsubishi L200. We need four wheel drive, an integral boot rather than truck body, seven seats, reliability and plenty of rugged boot space. My husband would love a Land Rover Discovery but i’m not keen in terms of reliability. What do you suggest?

I think you're right to avoid the Discovery on reliability grounds. A Mitsubishi Shogun would be a good choice - they're reliable and make an excellent workhorse, but they feel very old-fashioned - especially compared to a Discovery of the same era. The Kia Sorento might be worth looking at. They're practical and your budget will get you one still inside its original warranty. Also consider a Volvo XC90, but do your research first.
