Might be looking for a car that doesn’t exist, but we’re hoping to find something that’s easy for elderly parents to get in and out of; handsome looking; economical (ideally a hybrid); could easily take child seats; reliable; and have all the mod cons - reverse camera, heated seats etc. Can you help?!

OK, that’s a very particular set of criteria, and I think realistically only three cars match it — the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, the Toyota C-HR Hybrid and the Kia Niro hybrid. Of those three, I think that it’s the Kia that comes closest to matching your needs, as the RAV4 might actually be a bit too tall for your parents, while the C-HR might be too tight in the back. The Niro’s actually quite a decent car, although totally unexciting to drive. If that doesn’t matter much to you, go check one out. Here are our reviews:
