What's the best seven-seat SUV for tall teenagers?

I've got three kids, two pretty tall teenagers and one in a child seat. We use the rear seats a lot on short journeys and occasionally for journeys over an hour and a half. What should I get if I want an SUV for under £45k?

My money would go on a Skoda Kodiaq or Hyundai Santa Fe. Alternatively, if you'd prefer a more premium choice, a pre-registered Volvo XC90 is within reach and would be a lovely family car.
