What small MPV/hatchback should I buy?

I want to change my 1.6HDI VTR+ Berlingo Multispace 2009 for something smaller with a petrol engine. My needs are easy ingress/egress, highish seating position, flat load bay with rear seats lowered, reliability, longevity and low emissions and running costs.

I am considering a Jazz, B-Max or Venga but am open to suggestions and would value your opinion. I do 10K miles of mixed driving annually and have £10,000 plus the Berlingo trade in.

They are the suggestions I would make. The Hyundai ix20 is the same as the KIA Venga. The Jazz is the lowest of these. The B-Max offers the best access.
