What is the best value, medium-sized hatchback with good leg room for £4000?

I've got £4000 to spend and would like a manual hatchback, petrol around 1.6. I'm doing about 200 miles, on mainly motorways, per week and I'm tall so need good leg room. I want a reliable, sturdy car with airbags, Bluetooth and USB if possible.
