Have you considered a VW Sportwagen? I own a 2012 TDI model that would check most of the boxes you listed, if you can wait long enough for the diesel "fix" to be sorted out. If you can't wait, the earlier 2.5 L engine and more recent 1.8 L turbo will also provide similar smiles with good fuel economy. If your sense of speed is calibrated to the race track, look elsewhere.
The wagon format gets no street cred, but is my favorite feature of this car. Storage like an SUV when you need it (22 bags of mulch!). Car practicality all day long.
If you consider this route, I STRONGLY recommend a standard manual transmission rather than the DSG auto. The DSG (in my car, anyway) is wholly unpredictable, even in " manual" mode, and destroys a crucial connection to the car.
