Which small automatic car?

My wife had a Vauxhall Corsa energy 2004 Reg semi-automatic car. We had a bad experience with this vehicle as one day it suddenly stopped displaying F in the dashboard and later being diagnosed as ECU/gear box problem. Unfortunately we had to scrap the car as it was not worth repairing it.

Now we are looking to buy another car but confused as to which would be most reliable small auto car.

Something with a 4 speed torque converter automatic transmission, such as a small Hyundai or KIA, or a Honda Jazz CVT-7.
