What's a good car to replace our BMW i3?

I love driving our BMW i3 Rand Extender but now we have a place in Spain, we need another car for journeys south. It should be comfortable with fuel range for 3-5 hours driving in one stretch, while still being small enough to drive and park in the typical narrow streets of Spanish old towns. Anything fuel but diesel power is acceptable and badge not important. Decent ground clearance would be a bonus for parking near beaches, too. Can you suggest anything under £25k in the current market?

We'd recommend a Kia Sportage. Your budget will get a nearly-new example of the latest model (launched in 2022) with the 1.6 CRDi diesel engine. It's a very comfortable car that'd be very efficient on long journeys. Also consider a Skoda Karoq or Volkswagen Tiguan.
