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.

Peugeot Partner 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 Peugeot Partner does. The sheer numbers that were converted are testament to their usefulness for wheelchair users. All Partners have a wheelchair user winch to ease the concerns of entry and exit, and, most importantly, the use of a winch can ease the burden of the pain for wheelchair users by smoothing out the bumps on entry and exit.

The beauty of the Peugeot Partner lies in the low lowered floor, which gives a better centre of gravity for wheelchair users, which means better stability in this WAV during travel. The same low centre of gravity also makes for good all-around visibility for many wheelchair users. It has a good entry height and even more headroom inside too.

A significant bonus is the lowered floor is level, which is traditionally not found in similar-sized WAVs. This is often overlooked by those seeking the most comfortable WAVs for wheelchair users, and your comfort is paramount first. Coupled with tinted windows for privacy overall, you are presented with an excellent proposition for entry, travel and exit and being a relatively small WAV; you shouldn’t have to spend too long in the vehicle before a suitable parking space can be found.

Driver experience

The Partner is easy to drive, comfortable and the controls are simple but plenty good enough. It’s available as an auto and manual diesel, and a manual petrol version is available too. Air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth are present, and park sensors. The Partner is very economical and has enough power underfoot, especially in the diesel engine versions.

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 Partner’s size and agility. The accurate parking sensors will help you gauge exactly how far behind you any obstructions are, and any time saved when you have a wheelchair user on board is invaluable.

Passenger experience

As a passenger, your needs are just as critical as a wheelchair user and the driver. Legroom in the Peugeot Partner is ample, and visibility is excellent whether you are in the front, in the standard rear seats or sitting in the coach-built second-row seat versions of this WAV. 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

Many variants of seating, availability and 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, higher driving position, and WAV supply the necessities for wheelchair users, drivers and passengers alike very well. The Peugeot Partner is reliable, compact and represents excellent value for money.
