We want to downsize from a Tiguan - what small crossover do you suggest?

My wife drives a manual Volkswagen Tiguan. She has a disability and now needs a smaller car but with a similar height to the Tiguan. Four-wheel drive is not essential although it does need to accommodate a small dog cage even if the rear seats need to be folded down for it to fit in. Any suggestions?

If your wife likes her Tiguan, we'd recommend a Volkswagen T-Roc or T-Cross. You could also look at a SEAT Arona or the very versatile Honda HR-V.
