Asked by Dianna
My Dad has mobility limitations and found the Toyota Yaris (2006) suited him (as a passenger) as the seats were higher which made it easier to get in and out, plus it had a big boot for the wheelchair. He would like to update his car but the sedan is no longer made. Can you advise a car/SUV of any make that is similar to the Yaris with higher seats and big boot? Thank you.

If your dad was happy with his previous Yaris, then I think the new model would suit him just as well. Don’t be put off by the lack of a sedan, as the hatchback version is actually even better at swallowing things like wheelchairs. You’d be amazed at just how practical a conventional hatchback is. The real shame is that Toyota no longer sells the three-door version of the Yaris (they’re all five-doors now). Because the three-door model had longer doors, they made getting and in and out even easier. The only catch was that they opened pretty wide (which is why disabled car-parking spaces are extra wide as well).
