Good top of range MPV on mobility please?

Comfortable high ride, good fuel economy, manual or automatic (not too used to automatics but keep getting advised that the new ones are more fuel efficient?)

At the moment we seem to be looking at Scenics, Picassos and the Peugeot 3008 - perplexed and dont want to make the wrong choice on mobility. Last 2 cars were Scenics, the last one was a nightmare and the 2 years after warranty cost us almost £3k. But it may have been a 'Friday car...'

There's a new Scenic twin shaft twin clutch automatic, like a DSG. But I reckon the best are the Getrag/Ford Powertshifts in the S-Max and Galaxy. Also try the Toyota Verso 1.8 CVT auto. That works very smoothly.
