What's the best small SUV?

Although I love my Nissan Qashqai my wife would prefer a slightly smaller SUV. The car must be an automatic and as comfortable as the Qashqai with similar performance. What do you recommend please?

I'd recommend the latest Nissan Juke. It's much better than the old model and available with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Alternatively, consider a Skoda Kamiq or Volkswagen T-Cross - both excellent crossover SUVs.
