Need a new minibus - any suggestions?

I work for a small charity and we're looking for a minibus that can carry nine people. We don't want anything too big. What do you suggest we get?

Renault Trafic nine-seater. But check the driving licence, drivers hours, tachometer and insurance for a 9 seater before committing. An eight-seater such as a Hyundai i800 might work out more cost effective.
