What comfortable, seven-seater with lots of gadgets can you recommend me?

I love buttons, comfort and gizmos more than power and driving. I don't need 4 Wheel Drive but want seven seats. I hate depreciation so I don't need a new car. What do you suggest I get?

If you want a used MPV then a 2014-on Citroen Grand C4 Picasso will prove very comfortable and there are various gadgets on offer including automated parking. If you go for something more recent and prefer an SUV, the Skoda Kodiaq is a good bet. Comfortable, plush, available with plenty of tech and with the option of seven seats.
