Which will be more fun to drive?

I am trading up from a Jazz owned from new. I want a comfortable auto SUV with good boot space that will be trouble free over 6 plus years. I also want to enjoy driving it approx 6000 miles a year many in town. Honda controls look non user friendly, Suzuki cheap plastics and CX-3 good to look at but cramped and no room for spare on upmarket versions. Any suggestions?

You've looked at the contenders. They're all tested in The Suzuki Vitara 1.6 auto drives well. The HR-V is the most roomy, with plenty of room for a full sized spare under the load deck floor. You could wait for the Skoda Yeti revamp that will give it a greater range of engines, but the autos will still be DSG. The new SsangYong Tivoli is a lot of car for the money, but the petrol auto isn't great to drive.
