Seven up

I’m getting a 7-seater on Motability. I need auto for my disability. Have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. My 10 yr old disabled daughter needs to be in the centre of the middle row seats. Teenagers have to travel in the rear row of seats. Excluding the Galaxy, Sharan and Alhambra etc., which 7-seat MPVs such as Citroen C4 Grand Picasso and Peugeot 5008 has the most rear seat legroom? It is difficult going around every dealer to look at legroom. Tried the Zafira but difficult to get in and out of rear seat and as 2nd row is a bench seat this can not be slid forward permanently to make room in back. Searched for weeks and tried to look at cars online but does anyone know of a site that shows best space in back seat please? I am thinking of Citroen C4 Grand Picasso, Peugeot 5008 and Mazda 5.

Actually, you can get a VW Caddy Maxi Life with the DSG box. Tested here: Also photo tests of the Mazda 5 and C4 Grand Picasso and a video test of the Peugeot 5008.
