Can you recommend a small car that will fit a wheelchair?

I’m looking for a car smaller than my Jaguar XE but I’m finding that the boot on most models is just too small to fit a folded wheelchair in. I need a depth of about 85cm.

Can you recommend a car with a sliding rear seat, which also has heated seats? I’m quite happy to lose rear seat space.

Take a look at the Honda Jazz. It's a very versatile little car with 'Magic Seats' that flip and fold to provide more boot space when required. Its low boot lip will make it easier for loading a wheelchair, too. You'll need a high-spec EX model for heated front seats. Alternatively, if you'd prefer a small SUV, a Volkswagen T-Cross could be a good option with a sliding rear bench.
