Please recommend a 7-seat vehicle for my son's family?

My son is looking to exchange his BMW estate car for a 7-seater as they are expecting a third child and will need three car seats and room for extra passengers. I was wondering what you would recommend?

Seven seats as standard along with sliding side doors. Outstanding combination of ride and handling. Good range of low emission petrol and diesel engines.
Good to drive and comfortable. Versatile with foldaway seats. Generally good quality. Diesel automatic option. Plenty of room in all back seats.
Family friendly seven seater. Sport has remote electric sliding side doors. Economical and light new 1.6 diesel. Compliant suspension astonishingly good on poor road surfaces.
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.
