The jack supplied with the vehicle is adequate for the use it is intended i.e. emergency use of changing a wheel for the spare, it will need to be used as per the instructions in the vehicle handbook.
If you decide you want better, the best is a trolley jack, however you will find that virtually all the budget range of them will be unsuitable, usually because of a lack of lift height, if you decide to buy one with the suitable lift and weight requirements you are likely to have problems finding enough space to carry it with you.
A "bottle" hydraulic jack is the most cost effective way to get the necessary lift and weight requirements fulfilled but as with all lifting equipment, will need to be used with care and following the guidance on its use.
