Which SUV or small estate should I buy?

I'm looking to buy a new SUV or small estate that has a flat boot without a lip, with fold-flat rear seats, preferably not a hatchback i.e. the rear door opens like the other car doors.

Is there a car like that out there?

The MINI Clubman is worth a look: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/mini/clubman-2015/

The old Suzuki Grand Vitara may also fit the bill: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/suzuki/grand-vitara-.../

Or the new Land Rover Defender 90: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/land-rover/defender-.../
