Looking for a car that's easy to get in and out for my senior parents. Can someone measure the distance from the ground to the height of the seat on the front passenger and driver seats?

thank you!

On my XLE FWD Cross with 225/55R18 tires the distance from the ground to the height is:
Passenger side: 28.5" from the ground to the front side bolster at front of seat cushion and 27.5" from ground to rear of seat cushion (rear of seat has no significant bolster).

Driver side: The distances are the same on my Cross but I have power seats with power height adjustment so the seat could be lowered somewhat for shorter drivers (I am 5'11" tall.)

Note: I don't think there are power seats available for the passenger side.

I have a Cross and as much as I like it, it's not working out for my mom. She is elderly and is having a difficult time getting in/out. The passenger seat is just too low, but not the driver's. I used to have a truck and she had no issue climbing in as there is a handle on the front A? pillar. Getting out, she would just slide out.

Now I am looking into buying a product called a seat jacker. It can raise the seat higher, so I hope this can solve the situation, Other than that, the vehicle is perfectly fine. Let me know if you have any other questions. My mom is 5'4" btw.
