Hi, We would like to suggest you to go for an MPV or a compact SUV as it will comfortably let your father walk in and out without crouching. In the MPV segment, there are four cars namely Honda Mobilio, Maruti Ertiga, Renault Lodgy and Toyota Innova. But, we would say that you should refrain from going for Innova as it won't offer desired features in the base variant that comes in a 10-12 lacs bracket. Also, it is a bit higher off-the-ground than the other three and it will make climbing into a bit difficult. When considering Mobilio and Ertiga they are good cars but on they are not as tall as the Lodgy, whose height stands at 1697mm and is both wider and longer than the other two. Climbing in and out Lodgy is a breeze and it is a great car. It is offered with two tried and tested engine options from Duster, one with 85PS and the other 110PS. Otherwise, if you want to go for a compact SUV, then you get a number of vehicles to choose from like the Duster, Ecosport, Creta, S-Cross and TUV300. But, again the problem with Ecosport, Duster and TUV300 is their high ground clearance that could make them a little bit difficult to climb in for your father. On the other hand, Hyundai Creta and S-Cross have less ground clearance, but Creta's overall roof height is more than that of S-Cross. Therefore, Ingress and egress in Creta will be easier than all other in this segment. To sum it up, you have two options to choose from, one is the Renault Lodgy, an MPV, while the other is Hyundai Creta. Now, it to get a clearer picture we would suggest you to go to your nearest Renault and Hyundai dealership and experience these vehicles.
