What SUV has a low boot floor for my elderly dog?

What SUV would you recommend for a new purchase with no boot sill and low ground to boot floor measurement for a labrador to jump in? Not too high sills on passenger side for elderly passenger with dodgy knees. On average about 6000 miles driven a year.

Generally speaking SUVs have higher loading heights than conventional cars on account of their taller bodies and higher ride heights, so if you are looking for the lowest possible entry point to the boot area we would suggest looking at cars like the Skoda Fabia Estate or Octavia Estate, the Dacia Logan MCV or Vauxhall Astra Estate.
