Perky chain cam engines, good build quality, decent cabin space. High off ground. 4x4 useful cheap transport in rural locations.

Is there anything similar to a Ford Fiesta with higher seating position?

I have been very pleased with my Ford Fiesta 1.25 which is now almost 6 years old. I'm thinking of replacing it soon but would like a car with a more upright seating position. Is there anything that compares favourably? I only drive about 5000 miles a year, most of which is locally.
