Higher purchase

I am having difficulty in sourcing a vehicle with a high seating position. I am disabled and need a high seating position and relatively easy access. I don't like the Vauxhall Agilia. Any other suggestions?

The new model Vauxhall Agila and Suzuki Splash (identical twins) are definitely the best small cars for high seats. Have a look at this video demo and make sure you are not thinking of the old model:

Otherwise, the (bigger) Nissan Note:

Or Renault Modus (test, but no video):
