          Additional Information

          Ford Tourneo Grand Connect Zetec 1.5 TDCi diesel auto wheelchair & scooter accessible vehicle WAV

           

          We do like the Ford Tourneo Connect as it gives more all-around space for the driver, passengers and wheelchair user. This is especially so for wheelchair users in-between and in front of the second row of seats, and this WAV is class beating in this respect. The Connect has more legroom than its contemporaries, and the wheelchair user can come further forward as there is nothing to impede the footrests. The floor in the Ford Connect is most often level too when coming forward this far with a lowered floor, and it has good clean lines. Drivers and passengers get a much more accessible entry, too, as the vehicle door sills are lower and more foot room meaning less leg torsion. The floor is low, meaning a good centre of gravity is achieved. Compared to other vehicles, we would consider this an easy to enter WAV for a wheelchair user, a scooter user, passengers and drivers alike. An often-unnoticed fact about the Grand Connect is that versus other WAVs in this class; its turning circle is much smaller.

           

          There is also much more space between the two second-row seats in the rear than other vehicles with a pair of second-row seats. Unless, of course, only one is present, in which case there is much more room for the wheelchair armrests to pass through. This space gives wheelchair users a much greater likelihood of going between the two rear seats and taking advantage of the extended footrest space. If a wheelchair winch is in place, this will, of course, impede the forward position of some wheelchair users, but much will depend on the make of winch present and exactly where it has was fitted. If in doubt, please call us with your wheelchair make and model, and we can usually nail down the percentage possibility of how well this WAV will work for you.

           

          We love the specification of the Ford Connect; even the Zetec specification is generous. The Titanium specification with its panoramic roof makes a world of difference to the light in the rear. Things like keyless entry and ignition on this specification are surprising benefits when you have had the pleasure. Ford has worked hard to ensure the driver and passengers are well catered for, and they are all too often second fiddle to the wheelchair user. As we always say, if the driver is not happy, the likelihood is the wheelchair passenger will not be either, and it goes both ways. The Ford Connect is often a win-win car for all who have the pleasure of being in it, which is rare in our compromise industry. The suspension we also note is very kind to the occupants, and this is very significant in a WAV because all too often, wheelchair users get a rough ride in WAVs created by the conversion and not the car. The Titanium or Active model of the Connect or the Grand Connect is to be admired as it matches many high specification standard cars, so it gets the thumbs up from us.

           

          SMV Conclusion: The Titanium specification dwarfs almost every WAV on the market, excellent value for money, and a wheelchair user can most often be between the second-row seats, a rare feature in the industry.
