What's the best small SUV with memory seats?

Now that hybrid working has settled down and insurance costs are going up, my partner and I are consolidating our two cars to one. However, a key essential is memory seats so we can be comfortable at all times whoever is driving. We currently have a Toyota Corolla and C-HR and have been with either Toyota or Honda for around 15 years due to their reliability reputation. We would like something no smaller than the C-HR but not too much larger either, probably nearly-new and around £30k. Our current thinking is last year's Honda CRV (EX trim), although this is in the higher road tax bracket which we'd prefer to avoid if possible and is also possibly slightly too large. Another possibility is splashing out on the new 2023 C-HR which now has memory seats on some trims. Our priorities are comfort, reliability and economy. Is there anything else you would recommend that has memory seats as standard on a particular trim so we don't have to search out cars with them as an option?

Have you considered a Lexus UX? It's a very reliable hybrid SUV that'll feel a bit more upmarket than your current Toyota models. It sounds about the right size, too - similar in size to your C-HR and smaller than a CR-V. You'll need a Takumi model or F Sport with the optional Takumi pack for electric front seats with a memory function for the driver's seat.

Genuinely cheap to run in the real world. Likely to be extremely reliable. Top-spec Lexus UX Takumi is particularly lovely inside.
