Need a comfortable car with a high seating position

We are a retired couple in need of a vehicle with raised front seats so we can get in and out easily. Can you recommend some cars we should consider?

Your best bets are the Hyundai ix20 and the KIA Venga (same car, different badges); Ford B-Max, the new Suzuki Ignis, or (second-hand) the Suzuki Swift or Vauxhall Agila. Look them all up at www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar
