What petrol estate car will carry two kayaks on the roof?

As a keen kayaker, I need a reasonably beefy petrol estate that will enable me and my wife to load the kayaks on to the roof. SUVs are too high, but looking around I can't find many petrol cars that would replace my ageing Corolla Estate. What would you recommend for £15,000?

Enjoyable, well-equipped, versatile seven-seater. Especially good as a D-4D diesel. Five rear seats fold into the floor. Supremely safe.
