What big but efficient car with a large boot would you recommend?

We are looking for a large car with a large boot. We could compromise by getting a 7-seater if it had a large enough boot to fit a medium dog cage, 2 prams and luggage/shopping but could really do with 8 or 9 seats. So far we've seen only 9-seaters with a big enough boot but need something as efficient as possible for small city journeys. We also need as low an insurance bracket as possible.

Conflicting requirements but if you want a 9 seater, then the best available currently is the Citroen Space Tourer, Peugeot Traveller and Toyota Proace. See: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/citroen/citroen-sp.../ The biggest, most efficient estate car for the least money is the Skoda Superb: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/skoda/skoda-superb.../
