Ford Grand C-Max

First on our list is the Ford Grand C-Max, a 7 seater estate version of the popular Ford C-Max. This car makes the list for a number of reasons but mainly for its roomy interior as well as sliding door make it ideal for drivers that require the installation of turnout seats or need to easily store their wheelchair. The interior also features lots of handy storage spaces and the heightened wheel base make getting in and out the car that much easier. Newer C-Max models also come with a hands free boot opener as standard.

Vital Statistics:
Vehicle Length: 4,519 – 4,520mm
Fuel Economy: 40 – 64mpg
Road Tax Cost: £30 - £125
Available Through the Motability Scheme: Yes

Seat Alhambra

Next on our list is the Seat Alhambra, a car that has made a name for itself as one of the safest models on the market and has been awarded the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. The Seat Alhambra also features a sliding rear passenger door that again is ideally suited to those who require turnout seats. The spacious hatch back boot on this model too is another feature that makes it ideally suited for drivers that require boot hoists.

Fuel Economy: 42 – 56 mpg
Road Tax Cost: £110 - £185

Volkswagen Golf

The estate model of the classic Volkswagen Golf is another car that is well suited to adaptations. One of the key features of the Golf is its forward folding front passenger seat that make storing wheel chairs and accessories much easier to accommodate. The wide hatch back boot, like with the other models on our list, is also ideal for boot hoists and tie downs.

Fuel Economy: 53 – 80 mpg
Road Tax Cost: £20 -£110

Vauxhall Astra Tourer

The Vauxhall Astra Tourer offers the best of both worlds with a spacious boot with no compromise to the interior space available for passengers and equipment. The electric parking brake as standard is another great feature that when combined with left foot accelerator pedals can make driving accessible to a wide range of drivers.

Vital Statistics: Vehicle Length: 4,702mm

We would like to stress that this is in no way a definitive list of adaptable vehicles on the market, there are lots we haven’t mentioned that can be adapted for drivers with restricted mobility. We would love to hear from some of you on Twitter and Facebook your opinion on wav vehicles.
