    I think you answered your own question - sedan vs. coupe. One the mods here has a 4-door VW Golf and claims easier chair loading, but I believe he still uses a folding TiLite and stores it in the backseat.

    I suggest looking at a Honda Accord coupe. The 2017's will be dropping in price because the 18 model is freaking gorgeous in comparison -


    and you can get a 4-banger if you want better mileage.

    I think a sedan really kinda sucks for us, but from what I can tell the doors on Subarus seem to open quite wide. Maybe a WRX or Impreza? Or getting back to the coupe route, what about an Ecoboost Mustang (if gas is a concern)?

    I drive a 2017 GT and it's super roomy. I have TR and have no problem passing it over my lap.

    I love my 2015 VW GTI, but I believe VW dropped the 2drs. I guess I'll have to keep it for a while!
    It's easy to load the chair, either to the passengers seat or the back.

    You cant go wrong there!

    Yeah, 4 doors are a pain. I have an old Crown Vic for a winter/salt beater, and modded the door hinges to open the door wider for wheelchair disassembly/assembly ease. It still really gets battered, but I really don't care. I'd hate to have an expensive new car treated like that.
