What's the best used car with 4WD under £7000?

Currently, I'm driving a 20-year old Mercedes C-Class automatic (love it, besides its rust and repairs). I'm looking for a spacious, used car under £7000, so we can go camping, to the beach and into the mountains. I've been looking at the Skoda Octavia Scout, SEAT Altea Freetrack and Subaru Outback. What similar cars could you recommend? 4WD preferred, but not a must. Automatic would be nice, but again, not a necessity. Thanks in advance.

I'd recommend the Subaru Outback, Toyota RAV4 or Honda CR-V. All three are available with four-wheel drive and all have an excellent reputation for reliability.
