Kia Rondo 2017
Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: If you're thinking of getting an SUV because you like to sit a little higher up and want a car with plenty of room and a big boot, but don't head off-road ever, then you may be better off in a Rondo S which drives more like a car and has much of the benefits of an SUV.You can read the full review here.
This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the Kia Rondo: Giant boot, Cavernous cabin, Practical interior
The 2017 Kia Rondo carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1400 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Kia Rondo 2019: Will parts be more expensive now Kia has stopped selling the Rondo in the Australian market?
Service costs won’t be affected, but some people might be put off because it’s no longer on sale. Parts will still be readily available through Kia for a long time to come.
Best budget 7 seaters?
The used Captiva does appear to be great value, but their shaky reputation for reliability would lead me to consider other options. The Territory would be a better bet, but they are known to have electrical and front suspension issues in the long-term. If you're after an SUV, a seven-seat 2006-12 Mitsubishi Outlander is smart buying at the moment, but if you're just after the seven seats, I highly recommend taking a look at a 2008-13 Kia Rondo. These represent excellent value at the moment. Hope that helps, and keep us posted with your progress.
Best used 7-seater under $15k?
The three cars you name all have merit, none has any major issue to be concerned about and all fit your needs, but you will have to shop around to find them within your age and budget limits.
