My Car Match is fun to play with and may trigger ideas you haven't considered.
I carry a folding wheelchair a lot and it fits fine in a Buick sedan, a Subaru wagon and a minivan. That's probably going to hold true for any SUV or crossover you consider.
A scooter would be difficult in anything we drive but the van, and the liftover height would be an issue even then. If your mom's scooter is a "two-piece" one, that might be okay, but my mom's never sees a car. But she's ambulatory for short distances anyway so the issue doesn't come up.

Yeah, it is one that breaks apart and the handle part can either fold down or come off as well as the seat (its just a light weight sort of scooter, though she has a battery powered wheelchair as well, but we don't take it anywhere, just for around the house though she rarely ever makes use of it).
I imagine any that had a decent bit of space in the back or fold down seats would work fine with it, though I guess I could always measure it to be sure. Often times she uses the electric chairs in the stores, but sometimes they will be out, or if going elsewhere just to get out the scooter can be nice, though I can always push her wheelchair easily enough myself.
Thanks for the thought, though, and I will also check out the car match to see what comes up =D
