Is there a good substitute for Renault's discontinued Clio Sport Tourer?

I have a 2010 Renault Clio Sport Tourer 1.5 DCI Dynamique. I would gladly replace it with another but am disappointed to learn that the Sport Tourer will not be available in the UK. Renault says there is insufficient demand. We think they didn't promote this model very well. Everyone thinks mine is a great design. We selected it as it had a 5-star safety rating, good fuel economy, a good flat boot with no sill, five doors and fitted TomTom. Have you any suggestions for something to replace it? I'm not sure I want anything bigger. Is the Renault Captur a good choice? Or, as my husband suggests, do I need to spend more and go for something like an Audi A1 or A3?
Funnily enough I've seen a surprising number of old shape Clio Sport Tourers on UK roads, despite Renault's reluctance to import them to the UK. The answer now, though, is the Renault Captur which looks great in metallic blue with a white roof: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/renault/renault-captur-road-test//
