People with a disability can regain some of their independence under the Motability program. The weekly mobility allowance can be used through this program to lease a car. This monetary amount can be used for mobility scooters, cars, and wheelchair accessible vehicles. If you qualify for the government mobility allowance, then you automatically qualify for the Motability program as well.
This program can still work for you, even if your disability keeps you from driving the car yourself. Appointing three proxy drivers that can drive the car in your places makes this program accessible for all people with disabilities. You can gain back some of your independence by learning more about this program and how it can fit into your life.
A hatchback offers ample cargo space to make it easier to load and unload wheelchairs or other necessary equipment. Since it is not as high off the ground like an SUV, Motability hatchback cars can make it easier to assist someone getting in and out of the car. It is also less of a strain when lifting wheelchairs into the cargo area.
Hatchbacks are reliable cars that tend to last a long time and have fewer mechanical issues than some other models of car. This can give you peace of mind when it comes to travelling. They also handle really well in difficult weather, so if you live in an area with a lot of rain or snow, this can make driving even safer.
Hatchback Motability cars come in a wide range of styles and colors. Since some people feel like they are trapped in the SUV option when it comes to disability-friendly cars, this can be welcome news.
Finding the best Motability hatchback will entirely depend on your personal preferences and disability needs. Measuring to make sure all the equipment you will need can easily fit into the cargo space is a necessity.
Hatchback cars come with a lot of available modifications, but it is still a good idea to check with your car dealer to make sure that all the modifications you will need won’t be a problem.
You don’t want to love a car that isn’t going to end up working for you. Knowing how many people you will need to transport is a major concern for those with families. You not only need room for all the equipment necessary for your disability but all the other people and things that regularly travel with you. Each person and family is different, which is why there are so many options to choose from when it comes to Motability hatchbacks.
There are a great range of hatchbacks available on the Motability scheme like the Volkswagen Golf, which is the biggest hatchback available on the Motability range at the moment.
We have 3 door and 4-5 door cars available. The 3 door options, such as the Peugeot 108 will give you a wider door opening angle with seatbelts set a bit further back. Whilst the 4-5 door options are useful if you often have other passengers in the car, as you won’t need to fold the seats down to let them out of the car.
