10 Of the Most Popular Motability Cars in 2019

Since starting out in 1977, the Motability Scheme has helped to provide more than 4.5 million vehicles, transforming the lives of disabled people and their families.

But, for those that are eligible, which vehicles are best suited to the needs of the Motability driver? Here we take a look at 10 of the most popular SUVs and hatchbacks in 2019, all of which are perfect for those looking for a Motability solution.

SUVs

 

Nissan Qashqai

With state-of-the-art Intelligent Mobility technology on board, it’s no surprise that the Qashqai has established itself as one of the most popular Motability vehicles in the UK.

A blind spot warning system, traffic sign recognition and intelligent auto headlights with adaptive front lighting system are standout features, whilst those looking for optimum space will benefit from the Qashqai’s size and vantage point on the road.

Ford Kuga

Awarded AutoTrader’s Best Car for City Driving back in 2018, the Kuga offers value and practicality, and as an SUV, the space within the vehicle is one of the standout reasons why it’s a go-to for Motability.

 

Unrelenting efficiency along with an impressive list of smart features – including a hands-free tailgate that allows you to open the boot by waving your foot under the rear bumper – only add to its understandable popularity among Motability drivers.

Volkswagen Tiguan

The tons of handy storage, adjustable seatbelts as standard and overall strong build quality of the Volkswagen Tiguan should give Motability drivers added peace of mind.

Volkswagen Tiguan All Space

There’s also the Tiguan Allspace, which is slightly longer than the five-door Tiguan and contains extra seating space and a bigger boot. With the rearmost seats in place, boot capacity is a decent 230-litres; with the two seats stowed away into the boot floor, capacity increases to 700-litres. Those are satisfyingly spacious numbers.

Kia Sportage

Among the other SUVs on this list, the Kia Sportage provides ample space to pack your essentials and potential Motability-related equipment into the boot. The 491-litre load space also increases to 1,480 litres with the rear seats folded down, providing plenty of storage space for additional mobility equipment.

 

Satin chrome details and high-gloss inserts in just the right places also leaves a memorable impression.

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

With the ability to choose from a selection of driving styles, the Mercedes GLA-Class can help give a freedom of driving you might have never realised was possible on the Motability scheme.

As the smallest SUV in the Mercedes range, it’s subtler than the average SUV, but still offers plenty of practicality for your journey. If a bit more luxury is your kind of thing, then the GLA-Class may well be up your Motability street.

Hatchbacks

 

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Staying firmly in the world of Mercedes-Benz, the German brand’s A-Class also finds itself amongst the most popular picks for Motability in 2019.

Active Parking Assist with visual and audible warnings of obstacles, a reversing camera in the boot lid, and ultrasound sensors positioned in the front and rear bumpers make parking more practical and less stressful.

Balanced comfort suspension provides a hugely relaxing drive, while the stunning interior and fantastic infotainment system turns the A-Class into a real crowd pleaser, with versions to suit pretty much everyone, including Motability customers.

Ford Focus

The Ford Focus has been one of the most recognisable vehicles on the road over the last 20 years. So, it’s no surprise that it’s a popular pick for Motability.

Ford Focus Active

With Electronic Stability Control helping to stabalise the car when it starts to lose grip, airbags that will shield you from all angles, and an e-call button that alerts the emergency services of a collision, the Focus is packed with driving experience technologies that will give you added peace of mind.

As a car with a 5-star safety rating, the Ford Focus is well worth considering.

The award-winning Astra is Vauxhall’s flagship hatchback. And as one of the British brand’s go-to models, it’s potentially a perfect choice for Motability customers who are looking for a reliable, compact car that comes with modern technology and safety features that allow journeys to be more joyful than stressful.

Multi-adjustable Ergonomic Active seats, that come with cushion extension and lumber support, make life comfortable for the driver and passengers, whilst Forward Collision Alert offers a safety-first approach.
