Can you recommend a reliable and efficient used car for £10,000?

I want to upgrade my 2006 Toyota Corrolla. I have £10,000 to spend and require a reliable, stylish and economical car that will accommodate my wife and daughter. My daily commute is 30 miles and I also like to go on long drives at the weekend with the family. What do you recommend?
