What's a good second-hand seven-seater?

I'm looking for a large family car that can accommodate seven. My eldest child is a teenager so the rear seats will need to be quite spacious. On a budget of £10-15k, what would you recommend?

A SEAT Alhambra could be a good option. There's a surprising amount of room in the back but access to the rearmost seats can be slightly tricky. If you need more room, you might need to look at a van-based people carrier like the Hyundai i800.

Proper seven-seat practicality which is more than you can say for most SUVs, practical and spacious even with all seven seats occupied, sliding rear doors are a real boon especially the electric versions.
Strong and quiet initially 2.5-litre diesel engines, eight seats with plenty of space for all, good value, sold with a five-year-warranty as standard.
