A Coupe is a small, sporty vehicle. They sometimes have two seats and a fold-down roof, but many of them are simple four or five-seater vehicles with hardtops. These second types are sometimes known as hatchback vehicles, although the difference in dimension and specifications is minimal. Coupe and Hatchbacks can make excellent Motability vehicles due to their smallness and accessibility.
It will not suit someone with a large family who takes regular trips to the supermarket or is busy with the morning school run. For this, you might think about a saloon, estate, or SUV. But if you need a car to visit friends and family, travel in, and make short journeys to the shops, then a Coupe or Hatchback is low enough to get in and out of quickly – it is also excellent for parking.
The Motability Scheme is an excellent opportunity for those who qualify to exchange part of their higher rate Motability allowance for a car, scooter, or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV). Often, there is no upfront payment, and vehicles can be leased for three or five years. If you lease a WAV vehicle, you may further benefit from free insurance, servicing, and breakdown cover.
Whatever your lifestyle is and whichever body style you prefer, you can find a Motability coupé car to suit your needs. Coupe vehicles won't be for everyone, but it's surprising how much value you can leverage from a smaller vehicle: not only in terms of efficiency but also speed, parking, and accessibility. And don't forget the smaller Coupes are roomy inside.

Of course, a coupé isn’t for everyone, the sloping roof can make accessing the rear seats tricky and often mean that your tallest passengers won’t find a long journey in the rear seats particularly comfy, but if a coupé suits your lifestyle these are the models currently on offer through the Motability scheme.
