Need a small automatic car with a high seating position - what do you recommend?

We have a 2004 Honda CR-V automatic, but my wife (who is in her 80s) is finding the car too big to drive. Can you recommend a smaller auto that will provide lots of comfort and a high seating position?

A Honda Jazz could be a good option. It's available with a very reliable CVT automatic gearbox. It's a small car but more practical and easier to get in and out of than the more conventional rivals like the Ford Fiesta. Alternatively, you could consider a small crossover like a Honda HR-V or Volkswagen T-Cross.
