What's a good car to replace my Vauxhall Meriva?

I am looking to change my car. I need an economical low emissions engine with some room as I go fishing and camping. At the moment I have a Meriva which has been a fairly good car but now 10 years old. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A Honda Jazz sounds like the ideal choice. It's extremely versatile, reliable and cheap to run. You could also consider a Skoda Fabia estate.
