Ford Courier mid wheelchair user position rear ramp WAV from Southern Mobility Vehicles

The Courier is the smallest of the three cars in the Ford Tourneo range, and it doesn’t disappoint. This wheelchair accessible vehicle has more room than almost anything else considered small in the mobility vehicle industry. That makes is a class leader.

The first thing to note is the internal space of this WAV; it is substantial in width and height too, so that any wheelchair user will feel at home inside this mobility vehicle. The low incline, easy to open, and solid rear ramp feels safe and secure, and the Courier doesn’t feel intimidating to enter.

Many preferred features we like to see in WAVs often don’t come into play in the marketplace, but Ford seems to lend itself well to the needs of accessible vehicles. A tight turning circle is necessary when carrying a wheelchair user, and the Courier does not disappoint here either. The wide and lengthy lowered floor compared to the size of this WAV is a pleasant surprise as it’s not uncommon to see larger WAVs with tricky access. Wheelchairs can be unwieldy in an adapted vehicle but not in the Courier, though.

The engine is lively and frugal and will deliver what’s required. No land speed records will be set, but that’s not a widespread need for this in the WAV marketplace. The Courier is economical too, which is always a relief with fuel prices being so high. All in all, this is an excellent all-around wheelchair accessible vehicle that does exactly what it needs to without any fuss.

The simple dash and a sensible specification will serve most needs as Ford planned their specification levels well, better than many have even in larger and seemingly better-specified vehicles. This is an excellent WAV for the active local user who needs to be here, there and everywhere as the practical Courier WAV shines through in this respect. There is no performance to on and off-board a wheelchair user; it’s as simple as can be with the Tourneo Courier mobility car.

SMV conclusion: The Tourneo Courier is a small WAV, easy to use, easy to be in as a wheelchair user, passenger and driver. It has a sensible specification, and we love the vast internal space for wheelchair users. It helps wheelchair users get in faster, feel safe and secure, and off-board without concern.
