What would be a good petrol equivalent to my Land Rover Discovery?

I have a 2015 Land Rover Discovery and wish to change to a petrol equivalent vehicle. It needs to be an automatic with comfortable seats and a raised seating position. What vehicles would you suggest I shortlist?

The Discovery is a 7 seater. There's the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon G63/G55 AMG and, the GL/GLS 63/55 AMG. I can't think of any other 7-seat petrol equivalents apart from perhaps a Volvo XC90 T8: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/volvo/volvo-xc90-t.../ You can get supercharged petrol V6 and V8 engines in the Range Rover Sport, V6 petrol turbos in the Porsche Macan, V6s and V8s in the Porsche Cayenne, and, of course, all manner of huge, petrol engine SUVs from the USA.
