Can you suggest a good SUV with torque converter transmission?

My present Motability car is a Skoda Yeti 1.2 DSG. It's time to replace this car and I want my next car to have a torque converter transmission. I have shortlisted the Peugeot 3008 SUV Allure 1.2 PureTech 130 EAT6 S/S and the Suzuki Vitara 1.4 Boosterjet S 4WD are there any other cars that I should add to my shortlist? In the case of the Peugeot 3008 the GT Line model has a 1.6 e-THP 165 EAT6 S&S how does this engine compare to the 1.2 PureTech? Due to my mobility problems an SUV automatic type vehicle is essential.

The 1.6 e-THP is more powerful but an older engine and can eventually have timing chain problems. Not your problem on a three year Motability lease, though. You could also consider a Peugeot 2008 1.2 Puretech 110 EAT6 and a (smaller) Mazda CX-3 2.0 skyactiv G auto.
