What small new car other than a Corsa?

I had a Vauxhall Cavalier and then for the past ten years an Astra; I am now thinking of a Corsa. It must be automatic; is there anything else of this general size you would recommend as being a better buy?

An original shape Toyota Yaris 1.3 auto or a previous to current shape Suzuki Swift 1.5 auto, Nissan Note 1.6 auto.

New, a Honda Jazz CVT-7, Mazda 2 1.5 Activematic, Hyundai ix20 1.6 auto, KIA Venga 1.6 auto.

Definitely not a VW Polo 1.4 DSG.
