Looking for a new car

As a rather keen car lover I would have a new car every year if i could, I'm one of those people that get bored quickly of phones, cars, hair colour...I love change. 

At the moment I have a 2003 Ford Fiesta Zetec, I got it on finance 3 years ago when I had just got my first full time job. I needed a new car at the time because I had a 1 litre Vauxhall Corsa that was falling apart and I needed a really good car for doing motorway driving. My new job was near Manchester, I had to travel 50 miles a day on the M6. I wasn't actively looking for a new car at the time but when i had taken my corsa into my garage to have work done, this blue Ford Fiesta was on the forecourt and it caught my eye. It was blue and the alloys on it were so nice, I'd always wanted a fiesta aswell.
What I want in a new car...
- 5 door car is a must, getting Joey in his car seat is a bit of a faff in a 3 door.
- bigger engine would be nice to, the 1.2 i have at the moment is fine but I'd like it a bit quicker.
- Newer: looking for something around 5 or 6 years old
- Good size boot to get the pram in
- something I'm still going to enjoy driving in 3 years.

Here are the cars I'm really interested in:
1) Skoda Octavia - years ago my grandad had a Skoda Fabia VRS which i very first learnt the basics of driving in. Ever since I've always wanted to have one, the Octavia is a saloon car so its a perfect family car. 
2) Vauxhall Corsa
I've always liked Corsa's, it was my first car and they're pretty popular and can be cheap to run. A few years ago I had a new Corsa as a hire car and I loved driving it and being able to answer my phone via the steering wheel. 

3) Ford Fiesta - I have a Ford Fiesta at the moment and like the newer models. The likes of Corsa's and Fiestas are pretty popular and can be cheaper to run.
4) Nissan Juke - I've never really been a fan of Nissan or ever wanted anything bigger than a hatchback but this car seems to jumping out at me all the time at the moment. They're not a massive 4x4 and look rather sporty which is what I like in a car.
It's really important that I make the right decision this time around when choosing a car. I don't want to buy something that I just like the look of and isn't completely practical. That's why I'm looking into my options quite early but I also don't know whether to buy a car outright or try and get one on finance.
