Crate to fit the new (2017) Civic hatchback?

So we just got our new car as per the title.

Old crate (Ferplast Atlas 80) is an awkward fit since pushed all the way back it leaves a huge space in front, making it difficult for our oldish golden to jump in. Without any other stuff in the boot the crate also slides around.

I was hoping to get a similar sized crate, possibly slightly wider, with the door on the short side rather on the long, so that I can fix it to the side of the boot with the door within easy reach from outside.

Two issues:
-there is a huge "lip" on the lower edge of the boot so the door must open upwards rather than sideways;
-I would have liked a soft crate, but the only two I found (Trixie Vario and Hunter Outdoor) with a slightly sloped roof to allow the boot to close and an appropriate lenght (80ish, cm, 90 is too long) are too low (50sh cm, needs to be at least 58-60).

So if anyone has the new Civic, what crate do you have for a medium-large dog (ours is a rather small gr bitch)?
Even if you don't have one (Civic or crate) but know any specific model that could suit our needs, please do chime in.
I don't want a wire crate (rattle!), would be happy with fabric/plastic/aluminium.

Call Lintran-K9, and they’ll tell you which of their boxes fit or if you need a custom-fit. Amazing boxes and local to me.
