Can you recommend some car models with a higher ground clearance that are easier to get in and out of?

My wife and I find getting in and out of cars more and more difficult so I wondered if you could recommend some with a higher ride height or at least not so close to the ground?

The Ford Fusion and Fiat Doblo are good choices. Both offer higher than normal seating position. If you prefer a smaller car have a look at the Fiat Panda, Hyundai Getz, Renault Modus and Nissan Note. Very new and a bit more expensive are Kia’s Venga and Hyundai’s iX35. There’s also the Skoda Roomster.

When you are looking at the cars make sure the seats aren’t so high that they are difficult to get into. Peugeot and Citroen MPVs have a sensible height seat and the Ford Fusion lets you slide in. It is vital that you have a good look at a range of cars before ordering one. Make sure you take the car for a long test drive of the type of journey you usually do.
