Peugeot Rifter LWB mid wheelchair user position rear ramp WAV from Southern Mobility Vehicles

The Peugeot Rifter long-wheelbase (LWB) is an excellent progression from the long-standing, heavily converted and highly rated Peugeot Partner and is a stunning all-around improvement on its predecessor. As a WAV or wheelchair accessible vehicle, it lends itself perfectly to the job. Some real improvements have made it far superior to Partner and many other WAVs, and it’s much roomier. With the long-wheelbase version (LWB), you gain that all-important 350mm or 13 and three-quarter inches over the standard wheelbase version.

The driver is treated well, with a generous specification to include an 8-inch touch screen entertainment centre, Bluetooth and cruise control. There is no satnav as standard, but it’s straightforward to mirror your smartphone with the generously sized screen. A DAB/FM radio is included, plus a USB port just where you need it to stream your music. The screen is also the command centre for much of the Rifter’s controls, so you can adjust many of the vehicle’s features.

All Rifters come with a wheelchair winch, which is now fitted under the floor so more space and less ugly to look at, plus the winch can’t get in the way of a wheelchair user’s footrests. With an underfloor winch, the footrests for the wheelchair can come further forward, and with the increased legroom, which also came with the new Rifter, this combination is a vast improvement for most wheelchair users. There is an inspection plate for easy access in the unlikely event the winch should fail.

The long-wheelbase Rifter WAV is built with one, two or three second-row seats, or none if preferred. The three-second row seat WAV build option in the Rifter retains the original manufacturer seats. If desired, this WAV can morph into a standard vehicle, and as the Rifter comes as standard with a fold-flat ramp system, it will look like the original build. If converted using the manufacturer build seats, the Rifter has 2/1 split seats which tip forward, giving a generous space should it be required. In the LWB model, with the manufacturer seats, you may not need to tip the original seats forward because the extra 350mm will mean many wheelchair users can board and be comfortable. Of course, this puts wheelchair users in the third row, which is not always a favoured position.

Coach built seats can be added or removed if need be. It’s important to remember that the gap is not particularly large with two second-row coach-built seats in place because the vehicle isn’t massive. The width for a wheelchair is much greater if you only need one rear seat. Still, with two seats, there is enough room for most wheelchair users to get far enough forward to be comfortable with their fellow travellers and feel included. The Rifter truly has a central inclusive wheelchair position, which is a rarity in the WAV industry. Most vehicles’ design does not allow this unless you buy a much larger WAV like a VW Caravelle or Ford Tourneo Custom, so this is a big win for a medium-sized WAV.

Another big plus for the Rifter conversion is that the rear passengers get generous legroom on the comfortable and pleasing coach-built seats in this well thought out WAV. Legroom is just as generous if the original manufacturer seats are present, a real win for anyone in the rear of this WAV and a rare find in this industry. IsoFix is standard for the coach-built seats and the original manufacturer seats in this WAV and is an appropriate extra for good measure, which shows the converter is thinking about the WAV’s passenger potential.

SMV loves the thought behind the conversion, the variety of seating options, a smooth new gearbox, diesel manual, diesel auto or shock horror, a petrol auto! It comes with a generous specification, phone screen mirroring and music playback, plus there’s an underfloor wheelchair winch, ample second-row wheelchair user legroom, the higher driving position, and the new pretty front end.
