Mobility and transport can be a difficult task for those who are restricted by a disability. Whether the individual is confined to a wheelchair or requires assistance in other areas, the Motability scheme is designed to help those who suffer from these circumstances to remain mobile and self-sufficient in their day to day routine.
In order to qualify for the Motability Scheme, you must have claimed one out of 4 higher rate mobility allowances with a 12 month period remaining on your award. These allowances are:
The SEAT Leon ST Estate is a practical vehicle for those who rely on interior space for mobility aids. The SEAT is considered more stylish among the range supplied by the Volkswagen Group (The Skoda Octavia and the Volkswagen Golf Estate). With the updated 2017 model keeping the appearance of the vehicle looking fresh, the SEAT also comes with a 587-litre boot space which should be more than enough to store mobility equipment such as wheelchairs.
The Citroen C5 Aircross is one of the most practical SUV not only on the market but also available through the Motability scheme. The SUV provides a relaxing atmosphere and comfortable drive for passengers to enjoy. The interior of the vehicle is large enough to house mobility equipment and remain spacious. This mobility car is a perfect all-rounder for anyone suffering from a disability.
The Ford Focus has been a staple of engineering, economy and driving a pleasure. This entry addresses the driver and passenger looking to enjoy the road to it’s fullest. The Ford Focus comes with a plethora of user-friendly tech and a range of petrol and diesel engine options to choose from. The most efficient of these options is a nippy 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine that delivers 60mpg, while the 1.5-litre EcoBoost diesel engine delivers 80mpg.
For those who are looking for the best driving experience within the Motability scheme, then the Ford Focus is a serious contender.
This seven-seater SUV comes well equipped with a range of user-friendly electronics and driving comfort. The Motability SUV allows users to comfortably seat three adults in the middle row of seats if you need to fold the rear seats down in order to create more boot space to help store things such as a wheelchair or other mobility equipment.
Out of this list, the Skoda Citigo is the smallest car available in the Motability scheme. This car comes as part of the Volkswagen up! range. This vehicle is perfect for the individual who lives in a tightly parked area (such as a town or city) but still requires the convenience of their own transport to get around. Although the Skoda Citigo is the cheapest out of the range, this doesn’t mean that the build quality has suffered. The driving experience is as refined as the Volkswagen up! with models reaching 68mpg.
