Finding a suitable wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) is not as easy as many think. This acquisition may well be a compromise that started with knowing you have to say goodbye to a car you want to travel in for a vehicle you need to travel in. Whether you need a new or a Nearly New WAV on the Motability Scheme, WAV rental, a financed or outright purchase of a new or used WAV, we are here to help you with independent advice on your first or your next WAV.

Citroen Berlingo mid wheelchair user position rear ramp WAV from Southern Mobility Vehicles

Wheelchair user experience

Few vehicles were converted for wheelchair access with the flexibility that suits so many wheelchair users as the Citroen Berlingo does. Its sister WAV, the Peugeot Partner was converted in large numbers and to all intents and purposes, the two vehicles are very similar. The suspension is good and views through the glass from all angles are excellent but this of course does depend on eyeline height. This is something we’ll establish with you.

Driver experience

The Berlingo is easy to drive, and comfortable and the controls are simple but plenty good enough. It’s available as an auto and manual diesel and air conditioning is present. The Partner is very economical and has enough power underfoot, especially in the manual diesel gearbox model. This WAV is a great all-rounder and represents excellent value for money, a manageable size on the road and parking is more accessible due to the Berlingo’s size and agility.

Passenger experience

As a passenger, your needs are just as critical as a wheelchair user and the driver. Legroom in the Citroen Berlingo is ample, and visibility is excellent whether you are. The driver and passenger seats are very comfortable and the good news is that the second-row single seat next to the wheelchair user is an original manufacturer seat. Sliding doors make entry and exit more straightforward and quicker for seated passengers, and for those with lower mobility, it is easier to enter and exit this WAV. You want to feel comfortable enjoying the experience of being in a WAV, and you won’t be disappointed.

SMV loves

The Citroen Berlingo is built with a manual or semi-automatic gearbox, there is a choice, a word that doesn’t get used very often with WAVs. The simple controls, manageable size, agility, a higher driving position, this is a WAV that supplies the necessities for wheelchair users, drivers and passengers alike very well. The Citroen Berlingo is reliable, compact and represents excellent value for money.
