Which vehicle would be good for transporting two large dogs?

My wife and myself drive a Volkswagen Golf Estate, but we have two large Newfoundland dogs, one fully grown and the other still growing which will eventually be a combined weight of 20 stone. We are in two minds to go down the van route unless there is a vehicle out there with a large enough boot space. I’ve been quite taken by the Ssangyong Rexton but that’s only looking online. What do you suggest?

The lower and flatter the floor the better in order to accommodate a decent cage and the weight of the dogs. I'd suggest the new Peugeot Rifter, Citroen Berlingo or Vauxhall Combo Life. You'll already know this, but just in case, do not ever drive anywhere with dogs of this size loose inside the car.
