Replacing a Volvo V70?

My parents have a diesel Volvo V70 estate 4WD. It is facing more costly repairs as bushes are wearing. They have a small farm shop and regularly carry or tow small loads 1/2 ton+ and tow a horse box occasionally. I did originally try to steer them towards an Isuzu Rodeo but was declined as dad liked Volvos. Have you any ideas for a replacement?

Kia, Hyundai, Toyota, Ford, double cab pickups?

Should I try persuade them into Isuzu again? Ride and running costs are considerations. Budget is around £10k.

£10k buys the previous model Isuzu Rodeo with chain cam 2.5 I-TEQ engine and 5-speed manual transmission. That's the most reliable pick-up with the nicest powertrain.
