Replacement for a first generation CR-V

My parents (in their 70s) have an R reg CR-V and want to replace it. They do <8k miles per year and are worried about diesel with this mileage. Need automatic, easy access, boot space, similar size (new CR-V looks too large). What would you suggest?

The new Honda HR-V 1.5iVTEC CVT-7 might suit. Alternatively a Suzuki Vitara S 1.4 Boosterjet auto.

Highly practical and versatile thanks to 'magic' seats. Strong i-DTEC diesel.
Very good to drive and comfortable. Lots of interior space. Five star Euro NCAP rating. Relatively economical. Excellent 1.0 BoosterJet engines.
