Canon Powershot SX420 IS - can it be bettered?

Hello Legends,

My trusty Canon SX420 is on its last legs thanks to a few drops. I use it for for work. It is nothing short of an amazing camera. Zoom is incredible and macro is no slouch. Perfect for my needs. I’ve had a look at the latest model and it offers a slightly better zoom at 45 instead of the 40. 
Has anyone upgraded from this pocket rocket to a better camera other than Canon with regards to MP (currently a respectable 20) and features as described? 
My work requires climbing ladders, entering confined spaces etc. and i use a Sirix case, so even with the case the camera needs to be able to handle some wear and tear.

ive used the Olympus TG-5 and the macro has to be seen to be believed but the zoom from a distance doesn’t cut it for me.

thanks
