Choosing the vehicle you would like to lease under the Motability scheme can be tricky. Ultimately, your needs will be defined on how many seats you require, any necessity for wheelchair access, and monthly cost – since the PIP was integrated, Motability has been clearer than ever, and so long as you receive the “enhanced” component payments you are eligible.
Here’s our 3 top van Motability vehicles.
1. Fiat Doblo
The Fiat Doblo is the best looking Motability vehicle on our list today – it has a unique retro appearance that makes it more attractive than many regular cars and vans on the road!
The Fiat Doblo has four seats, a wheelchair ramp for easy access to the rear of the vehicle, air conditioning, body coloured bumpers and door mirrors, and an advanced Start and Stop system that saves fuel. There is also a 3 year / 60k mile warranty for peace of mind.
The Fiat Doblo is recommended to Motability customers who want to travel in style and comfort. This vehicle has everything a medium family will need for an outing, however, the two vehicles below will be better for a smaller and larger family.
2. Citroen Berlingo Multispace
The Citroen Berlingo is the smallest Motability vehicle on our list today, but by no means is it last in the pecking order!
This fantastic vehicle features twin sliding doors for easy side access, a row 2 split removable bench seat, a manual ramp for wheelchair access, and it is available with different equipment packs to suit your individual needs. The Berlingo Multispace has space for 2 people plus a wheelchair, so it’s ideal for Motability customers who live at home and simply require a vehicle that will seat a few people.
Bristol Street Versa offers Motability cars including the Citroen Berlingo Multispace. This vehicle is highly recommended if you do not need a large vehicle.
3. Renault Trafic
The Renault Trafic stands out from the crowd not only because of its strange name spelling, but also because of its practicability – this fantastic Motability vehicle has up to five seats plus wheelchair access to the rear of the vehicle, which makes it perfect for groups of people.
Inside, the Trafic is comfortable and accommodating. The seats are comfortable, all trim is soft, and there is recessed lighting throughout the passenger space to ensure that even at night everybody can see what they are doing!
There is also a double front passenger seat, and the vehicle is available with an economical 2.0 DCi 115 bhp diesel engine for £19,495 on the road (estimate). A R.A.I.D (Renault Anti Intruder Device) and 4 year / 100k warranty offer further peace of mind.
