Thanks everyone! We've got it down to a Nissan Pathfinder TI, Ford Territory (titanium) and a Landcruiser Prado. We're doing a big trip in 2014 so wanted something with some towing capacity.

We have a diesel pathfinder and a petrol Hyundai IMAX. I thought the pathfinder was comfy and spacious but the IMAX is AWESOME. Even with 3 rows there's still heaps of boot space, sliding doors & I can walk through to the drivers seat.
OP I know you said no people movers
but I'm totally converted. Drives like a car too HTH

I thought you could get a diesel cx9 now though? Or if it isn't out yet it will be coming soon....

VW Multivan!!! Has everything you want and more... it is ugly and very much a van look but seriously it is easier to drive than our VX commodore and fuel efficient 7-8 on long trips and 10 around town. Only service at 15000 km intervals and good price too. All seven seats are made for adults with bootspace. child restraints on the five rear seats (only one we found that allowed this without engineering)
We often tow a trailer for camping and computer adjusts engine for fuel efficient use.
If you get past the look and test drive it you really won't want anything else. We drove so many and even took prams and bags in to try out. Most 7 seaters only allowed for boot space when using 5 seats or couldnt have enough carseat now the age requirement is seven.

We have a territory & it's never been an issue for us :-p

We have a Territory; I can't imagine how you would fit a double pram into the boot with all seats up. I can barely fit my Bee, I have to really squeeze it in.
No, so far the lack of split fold hasn't bothered us at all.
