Which car should I get for a short commute?

I have a short commute to work, however, once a month I drive to Devon (about 250 miles) and also to Scarborough (about 300 miles). I'd like some comfort and to be higher than an average car. It would also need to be an automatic. I have a budget of £10,000. What should I get? I currently have a Toyota Yaris.

Honda Jazz CVT 1.3 petrol would be my key recommendation. It has a very good reputation for reliability and sits higher from the road than your Yaris and £10,000 will get you 2018 model: www.honestjohn.co.uk/cars-for-sale/search/Honda/Ja...c
