We'd suggest a diesel with four-wheel drive, so something like a Nissan Pathfinder or a Land Rover Freelander. Both are very well built and robust, plus they are ideal for towing.

Bigger than original Freelander. 2.2-litre belt cam diesel. Incredibly good off-road. Robust interior. More fuel efficient 2WD model from 2011 with no rear diff to fail.
Rugged looks. Seven seats. Strong build. Tidy handling and very capable off road. Good value for money.
