Please recommend an automatic family car for less than £9000?

I would like some recommendations on a good reliable family car in the region of £6000-£9000, preferably no bigger than 1.8-litre. It can be diesel and must be automatic, with some spec such as a leather steering wheel, air conditioning and electric windows front and rear. Can be an estate car.

A Kia Cee'd or Hyundai i30 1.6 auto, one or two years old, if you can find one. Or a Nissan Note 1.6 auto.
