Which MPV do you recommend which can carry a lot of luggage and a dog cage?

My daughter lives most of the year in France and now wants to change her car. She does approx 10,000 miles a year and needs a reasonable amount of space to accommodate luggage and a dog cage. The only extra she really wants is air conditioning, plus ideally headlamps that can easily be switched from right to left hand drive. Her budget is up to £10,000 in total and she would prefer a right-hand drive car with a year or two of the warranty remaining. The Skoda Roomster looks like a good candidate but do you have any other suggestions please?

She could wait for the Dacia Logan MCV to arrive, from £6995 and still under £10,000 even with a diesel engine, but £10,795 with a/c: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/dacia/logan-mcv-2013...d

It won't have switchable lights, but then hardly anything does.
