Best buy: Mazda CX-5 2.2d SE-L Nav
On the face of things, the fact that Mazda's largest SUV doesn't offer the option of seven seats would appear to put it at a disadvantage.

- Options to add Trunk liner (dealer fit); boot matt with rear bumper protection (dealer fit)

Also consider: Skoda Karoq 1.5 TSI 150 SE L
This replacement for the Yeti combines superb practicality with a comfortable ride, plus it's available with a host of luxurious features, including virtual instruments and gesture control. We recommend opting for the 1.5-litre petrol engine, which offers lively performance without sacrificing fuel economy.

Also consider: Volkswagen Touran 1.6 TDI SE
The Touran is our reigning champion in the MPV market, because it's spacious, good to drive and feels very well built. It does carry a premium price tag, but hefty discounts on What Car? New Car Buying ensure this isn't a problem.
