Recommend a small 5-door automatic car?

I am 68 years old with two hip replacements. At present I am driving a 12-year-old Vauxhall Vectra 2.2 auto. I am now looking for a smaller car. My mileage is only about 2000 miles per year, with no long journeys. I am looking for a car of one to two years old, 5-door hatchback and automatic. My maximum spend is £9000, I would appreciate your advice.
