What's the best small car for someone with back problems?

I've got back problems and need a car seat that doesn't tilt backwards, needs to be automatic and have cruise control with a budget of up to £7k. Big ask for that price but any suggestions? What about a Fiat 500?

If you find a Fiat 500 comfortable it might work for you, although there are better small cars on the market. A Honda Jazz would be my choice - your budget will get you a high-spec model from 2014 with cruise control. Also consider a Suzuki Swift.
