What small automatic hatchback - that's easy to get in and out of - is best?

My mother currently drives a two year old Skoda Yeti 1.2 TSI 2WD. She would like a smaller new automatic hatchback for mainly very low mileage but possibly some motorway driving. Essential are ease of access and egress but also important is a light or automated boot. I think from your reviews a Honda Jazz might be suitable but are there other alternatives?

Yes, a Jazz 1.3 i-VTEC CVT-7. They're economical, but slow. Or maybe the new Suzuki Ignis automatic. www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/suzuki/suzuki-igni.../ However, the new Suzuki Baleno 1.0 BoosterJet 6-speed auto is an altogether nicer car: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/suzuki/suzuki-bale.../
