Higher cars

My wife and I are both in our eighties and are looking for a small car that has higher seats, making it easier to get in and out. So far we have only found one, which is the Mercedes A Class. Can you suggest any other similar small cars with high seats?

A current model A Class is not a bad choice, Compared to the original moneypit A Class it has been relatively problem free. Alternatives (big to small) are: Ford C-Max (new C-Max late 2010), Nissan Note, Renault Modus, Toyota Yaris, Suzuki Splash/Vauxhall Agila, Hyundai i10.
