Can you recommend a car with easy access to replace my Toyota Yaris Verso?

I wrote previously when I needed a vehicle to suit my incapacity, which was easy to get into and out of, automatic and would take two Labradors and my wife. Behold, on your say so I became the proud owner of a Toyota Yaris Verso automatic, which has been a delight.

Time has passed and I am even more decrepit (and the Verso creaks mightily also). Perhaps it is time to look for something as near the same as possible although, while still having the wife, we are down to one Labrador. I look forward to your recommendation.

There isn't anything. Toyota never imported the Varis Verso's successor, the Ractis. Everything else has a high load lip except, perhaps the Citroen Nemo Multispace, Peugeot Bipper or FIAT Qubo, and they don't rise as well as the Yaris Verso. There's a test of the Qubo Dualogic semi auto at HJUK.
