Can you recommend a car with a low boot lip for wheelchair loading?

I would like your advice on behalf of my elderly parents please. They are looking for a new small SUV or hatchback with a low boot lip to load my sister's wheelchair without having to lift it up too high. They currently have a Vauxhall Meriva and have told me they are considering the Ford C-Max, but if you know of any better alternatives I'd appreciate your input.

The Ford Tourneo Connect might work out better for them. Or a Citroen Berlingo Multispace or Peugeot Partner Tepee. Lower rear load deck.
