What automatic petrol SUV should I get to replace my Toyota RAV4?

I want to replace my Toyota RAV4 with another SUV. It must be automatic and I prefer petrol as I only do about 8000 miles a year. What would you recommend to take golf clubs, trolley and occasionally four adults?

Toyota now does a RAV-4 hybrid auto. Alternatively a cheaper Suzuki Vitara 1.4 T BoosterJet auto. Maybe a KIA Niro auto, or a KIA Sportage 1.6 T GDI auto (that's 'Gasoline Direct Injection'). Or a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
