What's the most reliable used SUV?

My parents are looking to replace their trusty 2006 Skoda Octavia Estate with a used SUV. They have around £16,000 (less is better) to spend. They need a high seating position but also something shorter than their current car. Reliability is essential. What would you recommend, please?

Toyota C-HR. It is a very comfortable car and the hybrid models have low fuel costs. Being a crossover, it sits much higher from the road than the Octavia and is backed by Toyota's excellent reputation for reliability: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/toyota/c-hr-2016
