Motability is a government scheme intended to help disabled drivers get back on the road. Having a disability shouldn’t put a dampener on the freedom of driving. And, for all you petrol-heads out there, driving is a form of excitement! Luckily, the motability scheme allows you to get back on the road. How? Well, first of all, you get a government grant or discount for buying a motability vehicle. In some cases, they are also modified for your particular disability. Sounds great, but what vehicles are available?
Toyota’s flagship hatchback is a great all-round car. It’s smart, practical, and fuel efficient to boot. It comes complete with Toyota’s overwhelming reputation for reliability and maintenance. So, you won’t spend too much time in the garage. The engine and specs are nothing to write home about. But, it’s a strong, reliable choice. There’s plenty of room for a small family, making it the perfect run-around. Check out the Motability offers at RRG to find out more about this car, and the Toyota Motability range.
When it comes to Motability options, the hatchbacks are a popular option. The simple reason for this is their price and practicality. The Peugeot is another fantastic little hatchback. There is plenty of room in the back for the family, and the engine is superbly economical. You won’t spend a fortune at the pumps, which is always a good thing. We also happen to think the 208 is one of the better looking cars on the Motability list. It’s sleek and sharp on the outside, and refined on the inside.
If you miss the sheer thrill and excitement of driving, the Mazda 6 might just be the best option for you. Why? Because Mazda have the best reputation for fun! Their Mazda MX5 roadster is widely accepted as the most exciting car on the road. This intuition and design extends throughout their range. The Mazda 6 is no different, and it’s full of life. Not only that, but it’s practical and reliable too. It’s a five-door saloon, which makes it great for family life.
If you’re looking for something a little bigger, the X-Cross might be just what you’re looking for. This crossover SUV is closer to a 4×4 than a hatchback, with plenty of room for the family. The stadium seats make it easy to get in and out, and there’s tons of room in the boot. Suzuki have a fine reputation for reliability, so you can expect some solidity with the X-Cross.
We’ll end with the budget option, the Kia C’eed. Kia have made a strong name for themselves, providing fantastic budget cars. The C’eed is perhaps our favourite of the bunch. It’s an all-around star, matching efficiency, style, and power. A great little run-around if you ask us.
That’s it for now, readers. Your disability shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the freedom of driving! If you want more information, speak to your local Motability representative to find out more.
