Can you recommend a used seven-seater with a petrol engine?

I am looking for a used seven-seater with a petrol engine and automatic gearbox. I'm split between the Nissan Qashqai+2 2.0 and the Toyota Verso 1.8. Both up to year 2012 or older. Which would you choose?

Go for the Verso 1.8 Valvematic Multidrive S. Nissan CVTs not reliable. Qashqai centre rear seat is a backbreaker.
