Is there a good seven-seat MPV that's petrol?

I need to buy a car to replace my poorly Kia Sedona. Is there a realistic petrol large family car? We need seven full-size seats plus boot space (the Sedona was great on this) but would like to avoid diesel with all the environmental concerns and charges/taxation. We also do long drives so have discounted pure electric. In addition, we occasionally tow a small trailer. Is this possible?

A SEAT Alhambra powered by the 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine would be a good choice. Also consider a Renault Grand Scenic with the 1.3-litre TCe petrol engine. Both should be fine towing a small trailer.
