Bike Updgrade - advice

Hey everyone, I want to get a bike updgrade to a full suspension bike. I currently own a Scott Scale 970 2016 and like how it rides. I normally ride XC and Trails but mainly XC. I live in Central America and we don't have a great selection, however we do have a Scott distributor, Specialezed, Cannondale and Trek. Which would be the best? Budget is around $4k which here doesnt get too much since prices are blown out of proportion. I really like the Scott Spark and the Scott Genius but the Specialized Stumpjumper or Camber aren't out of the question. A little advice?
I haven't ridden any of them given that the shops don't have these in inventory, they would have to bring it for me.

    If you like your Scale then then obvious first one to look at is the Scott Spark RC range, light, fast and very XC biased. I can't find a website with prices in your region though.

    The Giant Anthem is very competent, not quite as 'flyweight XC' as the Spark but it has a better controlled rear suspension if you are hitting slightly bigger stuff.
