Siller blacked

I currently run a BMW 3 series, now 8 years old. Both my wife and I are in our 70's and find it increasingly difficult to get into our car because of the sill. We are contemplating a change of and are looking for a 4 door, 4 seater car without a sill to step over. We know that the Mercedes A-Class has a raised driver and passenger seat
and no sill. Can you please let me know of any other cars that might suit our requirements? Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.

The current Ford C-Max is particularly easy to get in and out of.
Nissan Notes are quite good.
Renault Modus.
But the Mercedes A Class you are thinking about is fine and has the
ambience of a high quality car.

Much better execution of original A-Class concept. Feels far higher quality, especially inside. Easy to park.
Decent to drive with quiet yet torquey 1.6 chain cam engine, sensible gearing, light controls and excellent ride quality.
