Mini van would be better even at just two kids. The tourx had plenty of capacity for 4 people but what a good mini van can do for kid hauling is unmatched. Sliding doors > everything else.
You are on it - the sliding doors are key!

A turbo wagon?

Combining car handling with SUV space, while avoiding the abysmal fuel economy of SUVs?

Sounds like a great idea for a car…
My 2008 Passat wagon didn't have SUV space, and worsel fuel economy compared to my SUV (even with AWD), and it sucked down premium gas.

And since the 2006+ Passat 2.0T wagons were FWD only, that means I have put chains on when the law tells me to. VR6 4Motion had abysmal fuel economy.

I saw a Tour X just last night; it’s a very nice car. My wife and I avoided minivan purgatory by just having one kid; now that we are empty nesters everything in the garage has two doors except for the E84 X1(although the Clubman is a three-door if you want to be a stickler about it).

I’m not a GM fan by any means, but I loved the looks of the Tour X. It’s a shame that wagons aren’t popular here in the USA.
I watched a show called “800 words” and their car was a Holden Commodore wagon, and I fell in love with it. Absolutely beautiful vehicle.

One popped up at a dealership here and I happen to need a car. Hoping to get to it before it’s gone. They want $27k for it, which KBB says is a premium.
