I have a 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander & I love it! It's very fuel efficient, I get about 700kms+ to a 55L tank & I city drive. It's got a great boot space too. I think it comes in 5 or 7 seats but I just have the 5 version. Plenty room in the back compared to the ix35 which my folks have. I thoroughly recommend it!
My SIL has 3 kids & she loves her 7 seat Dodge Journey. I do like the look of them! Not sure how it goes for fuel, but one downside is that as it's American it can be hard (& expensive) to get parts & service should you ever need to.
