What automatic SUV/MPV would you recommend for short trips?

I have a 2014 Volkswagen Golf 1.4 DSG, which I love, but the seating is a bit too low on long journeys. I'm looking to part exchange for an automatic SUV/MPV, thinking a Nissan Qashqai or Ford C-Max. Most journeys are quite short, having done 7500 miles in three years. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.
