Probably the BMW X3 or Mazda CX-5. Consider an estate car like a BMW 3 Series if handling's important.

Classy and versatile interior. Generous equipment levels. Top-spec GT Sport feels particularly plush. Handling strikes a good balance between sportiness and comfort.
Class-leading interior with a real quality feel, plenty of space in the cabin and boot, decent handling is complemented by a good range of engines.
Great to drive with a wide range of refined engines. Looks and feels very classy. New infotainment from late in 2022 means it's now entirely up-to-date.
