Best Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle 2024

In our opinion, one of the best all around options when it comes to wheelchair accessible vehicles is the Ford Tourneo Connect. 

This vehicle is a perfect balance of reliability, features, accessibility and ease of operation.

Reliability 

Every motorist values reliability in their vehicle- including passengers too!

Ford is well known for their reliability and strong engineering and the Ford Tourneo Connect is no exception. Conversions on these vehicles are also excellently installed, further increasing reliability. 

Our Connects (and all other vehicles on fleet) are fully maintained and services to help keep them running smoothly. 

Features

This vehicle is jam-packed with infotainment features to make your journey as smooth as possible. Features a full colour touch screen, this vehicle allows you to connect your phone via bluetooth, android auto or Apple car play. It also features a handy sat-nav feature so you can plan your trips with ease. 

In terms of safety, modern vehicles have features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and automatic emergency braking.

Accessibility 

Fitted with manual rear ramps, these Connects are a great option when it comes to wheelchair accessible vehicles. 

A wheelchair user would simply enter the vehicle via the long and secure ramp then have their wheelchair secured safely in place with the included tie down restraints and of course along with a seatbelt. 

These vehicles can seat 5 people (including the driver) along with 1 wheelchair user in the rear and offers plenty of room for all in the vehicle. At the same time as being spacious, this vehicle is also not too large and so is easier to drive around town and manoeuvre.
