Best people mover for $15,000?

What do you recommend for a six-plus seater for about $10,000-$15,000? We'll have four kids and we'll need space for luggage. It'd be great if the third row has a split-fold seat or the seventh or eighth seat could come out completely. Not sure whether to go for a people-mover like a Honda Odyssey or Mazda MPV, a van converted to a people-mover like a Mercedes, Hyundai iMax, or an SUV such as a Toyota Kluger or Volvo XC90.

The Kia Carnival gets The Tick, every time, in that price range. And with four kids you will find that a proper people-mover gives far more flexibility than an SUV or even a converted van.
