A small 4x4 to suit elderly relatives - what would you recommend?

I'm buying a small 4x4 on behalf of elderly, country-dwelling relatives who are finding their Shogun too high to comfortably get in and out of and too clumsy for its occasional trips into town. Problem is, the small 'soft-roaders' that I know of, herein, Nissan Juke and friends, have been rejected out of hand on aesthetic grounds. Can you point me in the direction of a small, straightforward and straightforward-looking crossover vehicle?
