Need a comfortable hatchback with lots of space

I am looking to buy a Golf sized hatch. The car must be comfortable to drive and be easy to get in and out of. It must also have a petrol engine. What do you recommend?

A Volkswagen Golf SV on standard 16-inch wheels with 205/55 R16 tyres. This presumes you don't want an automatic.
