Additional Information

2018 Ford Tourneo Grand Connect Zetec 1.5 diesel auto wheelchair & scooter accessible vehicle WAV

We like the Ford Tourneo Grand Connect as an adapted or mobility car; it gives more all-around space for the driver, passengers than most all wheelchair accessible vehicles in its class. Wheelchair users get their own space at the car's rear, although not all want to be in this position. Younger chair users and lower dependency wheelchair users often relish their own "room" in the vehicle's rear, but this comes down to personal preference.

All Tourneo Connects have significantly more second-row passenger legroom than almost all their contemporaries. The Ford Tourneo Connect and Grand Connect's lowered floor allows a wheelchair user to be settled on the level or on a tilt, which can be advantageous, especially when considering. A level floor isn't easy to build in many WAVs due to the nature of what is under the vehicle floor that must remain a part of the vehicle post-conversion.

Drivers and passengers get a much more accessible entry as the vehicle door sills are lower, and more foot room means less leg torsion. The floor is low, meaning a good centre of gravity is achieved. We would consider this an easier-to-enter WAV for a wheelchair user, a scooter user, passengers, and drivers alike than other wheelchair accessible vehicles. An often-unnoticed fact about the Grand Connect is that the turning circle is much smaller than other WAVs in this class.

Most Connects are converted with a rear ramp, and we only buy the most user friendly of them all, and if they aren't, you won't see one in our stock. 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 Connects; even the Zetec specification is generous compared to many wheelchair accessible vehicles available today. 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 enjoy being in it, which is rare in our compromise industry. The suspension we also note is kind to the occupants and in particular, wheelchair users. The ride is very significant in a WAV because all too often, wheelchair users get a rough ride in WAVs created by the conversion changing the car's dynamics. The Titanium or Active model of the Connect or the Grand Connect is admired as it matches many high specification standard cars, so it gets the thumbs up from us.

SMV Conclusion: The Ford Connect Titanium specification dwarfs almost every WAV on the market. This WAV will carry five people on standard seats and a wheelchair user effectively in quite a compact car. The Ford Connect, Grand or otherwise, is excellent value for money.
