Can you suggest a van-based car that can be used to transport small motorbikes?

I presently have a 2003 Citroen Berlingo. I transport small, classic motorbikes in it by folding the front passenger seat forward. I can then have a motorbike front wheel on the flat seat back and have enough length in the rear of the van for other classic motorbikes. Last year, I purchased a 2015 Yamaha SR400 and it just fit in my van. I'm now looking for a petrol car as a replacement. I want to have a vehicle where the passenger seat folds forwards and that the rear seats can be removed directly behind the passenger seat. Is there anything that suits my needs that isn't a van?

A van-based MPV will be best for your needs. Perhaps something like the Volkswagen Caddy Life, which allows you to fold the second and third rows flat:

If you want something that’s smaller than a Caddy, the Fiat Quobo might suit your needs. It’s much cheaper to buy and the rear seats can be folded or removed altogether, which should give you enough space for a small motorbike:
