    Yeah, the front seat is very sports car like as far as getting in and out. Not an issue for me but i am short and not big (though not skinny anymore either). Actually, the manager of the guy who solid it to me had just traded in a 3 for one of the small Mazda SUVs (300 or 5 or 6) because he was a pretty big guy.

    If the ladders fold small they can probably fit ‐ the back seats fold down. One of my few complaints is no automatic rear hatch door, has to be closed manually. Again not a big deal for me but those auto doors are so convenient and pretty standard now.

    If you like Mazdas, you might consider one of their small SUVs. Less sporty but they are still compact, and should be a more comfortable to get in and out of and to un/load stuff.

    My '97 Volvo V70. The last of the boxy Volvos. I love cars with square angles and flat panels, hate those modern cars shaped like potatoes or bars of soap. And I also hate all those electronic gadgets in modern cars, all I need is a steering wheel, 3 pedals and a stick shift, a big trunk for my gear, and a powerful engine...

    I grab bus 31 after Jules Joffrin and switch to Transilien line L at Pont-Cardinet. Then I stop at La Garenne to grab the T2 tramway to Bezons at the end of the line. (My picture is confusing, seems like I go to La Défense.)
    You actually have the same trip or close to? Or did you mean you have another bus then another Transilien then a tramway?

    This is my current daily ride:
    Not mine, a one-week car rental for holiday in the family house in Cotentin.
    Depending how one consider it:
    1) That's crazy, more expensive than a G5420T, only for one week.
    2) But that's my only car cost for the year, then it's way less than owning a car and only use it one or two weeks per year.

    I had a 1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4-wheel that was my gear hauler, but it had started leaking from so many holes, it was time to retire her. I also had a Chrysler PT Cruiser that was fun to drive, but didn't handle snow and ice very well. About 6 months before I retired, I found this 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. 4-wheel, so I made a nice deal to trade-in my two vehicles in the process of buying this one. I drive my grandchildren, so I needed reliability and 4-wheel drive for the snow and ice in Missouri.

    I drive them until the wheels fall off, or when I wake up in the morning and all four are pointing to the sky! Lol

    If the smaller Mazdas don’t fit, I can’t speak highly enough of the CX-9. I could fit my guitar rig, bass rig, and the PA we used to use in that and it was still the best car I’ve ever owned. I traded it in on Whitey O’Van and kind of wish I hadn’t, given how little I got for it. If and when I get another job, if it involves a commute that can’t be accomplished by a combination of public transport and bicycling, I may buy another, if I can find a used one cheap enough.
