What's the best used, medium-sized SUV?

I have £19,000 to spend. Can you tell me what's the best used medium-sized SUV with a petrol engine and automatic gearbox?

We'd recommend a Kia Sportage with the 1.6 T-GDi petrol engine and DCT automatic gearbox. It's likely to be cheap to run and will come with the remainder of Kia's seven-year warranty. A Skoda Karoq would be a good alternative (if you can find one in budget). Also consider a Hyundai Tucson.
