I would think that the height of the floor off the ground would matter, as would the sill height. My sister is not buying a new car without having my father test sit it. You need to test sit your new car with your relative. Yes, you have to go to a dealer. You may want to go first by yourself before you bring your relative, but I don't think you can do this over the internet.
Getting in is harder than getting out for my father. Someone else mention head clearance. That's also important.
