What is a suitable car for a retired couple?

We have a Citroen C3 Picasso which we now wish to change. It has been a great success for a 6ft 1in man and 5ft 2ins wife. Motoring is local, South Somerset lanes, plus main and motorway driving in UK and Europe. We wish to change for a similar but petrol-engined type and size vehicle with high seating.

Is there any such model in the Peugeot range? Other makes and models you can recommend will be sought out and considered seriously.

We would suggest looking at the Peugeot 2008 or 3008, both of which offer a raised seating position and are available with petrol engines suitable for both town driving and longer journeys.

You could also look at the Ford Puma, Citroen C3 Aircross and Toyota C-HR as alternatives.
