Known entry

I am looking to buy a new car but am struggling to find the 'right' car My average mileage is 5-6,000 a year, would prefer a manual transmission. I am partially disabled and currently drive a Ford Escort, so was looking for a car which would be easier to get in and out of and had ample boot space with a straight in approach. I have so far looked at the Vauxhall small MPVs, Ford C-Max (not comfortable for me to drive) and the Peugeot 207 SW. Are there any you would particularly recommend and which should be avoided?
