Is there a newish station wagon with a flip-down tailgate?

The wife and I are looking to buy a station wagon or mini-SUV sized auto that has a flip-down tailgate, or one that opens sideways, like a door. This has been surprisingly difficult to find in recently-manufactured vehicles. Secondary desired features are: good gas mileage (Hybrid would be ok), AWD, <$20,000.
We're looking for this to transport our dog, who likes to chase things he shouldn't. Thus, the need for a back that we can block with our bodies or the gate itself. Plus we don't want to catch his tail when closing the gate either!
We don't mind new or used within ~10 years. Any recommendations with or without anecdotes are appreciated!
