Searching for new economical automatic compact MPV

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers searching for a compact MPV. Prefer petrol automatic as we only do around 8000 miles a year. Thought about Peugeot 5008 but prefer Japanese reliability, but Toyota Verso and Honda FRV auto box is only on 1.8 engines.

I would like some economy and reasonable tax band. Currently own a Vauxhall Astra 1.8 auto, and need more space and lower running costs. Prefer MPV to estate. Is this possible?
