Can you recommend a van-based car with lots of boot space?

I would like to buy a petrol, secondhand (maybe three of four years old), small van with windows. It needs five seats and lots of boot space. I wondered if you have any particular recommendations of a make and model?

If your budget is limited, the Fiat Qubo would be worth investigating. It's compact and has a useful 330 litres of bootspace when the rear seats are in place. The rear seats can also be folded or removed altogether, which effectively returns the Qubo into the van on which it’s based: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/fiat/qubo-2009/

The Ford Tourneo Connect is better to drive and superior in quality, but will cost more to buy. Available with petrol or diesel engines, it drives like a refined family car and can be specified with seven seats: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/ford/tourneo-con.../
