Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle
The Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life is one of the most popular vehicles on the market to be converted for wheelchair and scooter users. It's the passenger version of the compact Caddy van with additional length compared to the standard variant, although it remains a similar size to a family estate car.
It comes with a range of conversion options available including a fold flat ramp, bi-fold ramp and electric winch. These features enable disabled passengers to access the vehicle without having to transfer from their wheelchair or scooter onto the car seats. There are a variety of Motability approved converters who can fit whichever adaptation fulfils your needs best.
VOLKSWAGEN CADDY MAXI LIFE SPACE
As standard, the Caddy Maxi Life comes with seven passenger seats; however, this is reduced to five seats (including the driver) when it is converted to accommodate a wheelchair or scooter user.
There is still enough space to transport up to six people which is plenty for most families. If you do need extra seats, a seven seat option is available at an additional cost.
It makes an excellent WAV because of the cavernous interior which provides 3,880 litres of space and includes plenty of headroom when the wheelchair or scooter user is in place.
VOLKSWAGEN CADDY MAXI LIFE ACCESSIBILITY
The Caddy Maxi Life is designed for optimum access with twin sliding side doors and an enormous rear tailgate hinged at the top to facilitate side and rear entry, whichever is easiest.
The non-slip lowered floor along with the wheelchair ramp are the cornerstones of this vehicle's accessibility. They allow the wheelchair or scooter user a quick and painless entry to the vehicle. Getting in and out of the Caddy Maxi Life could take less than two minutes.
VOLKSWAGEN CADDY MAXI LIFE SAFETY
The wheelchair or scooter passenger can be held securely in their seat by the vehicle’s four wheelchair restraints.
Safety of every passenger is enhanced by additional features such as the six airbag system, electronic stability control and ABS braking.
VOLKSWAGEN CADDY MAXI LIFE DESIGN
The main purpose for a wheelchair accessible vehicle is to transport a wheelchair or scooter user with minimum disruption, but that doesn't mean it can't have an attractive design and desirable features.
Although based on a van, the Caddy Maxi Life borrows a number of design cues from the Volkswagen car range, particularly the Golf and Polo hatchbacks.
On the outside, it has been designed along similar lines to a car with the same distinctive nose as the Volkswagen Tiguan that makes it look less like a commercial vehicle.
VOLKSWAGEN CADDY MAXI LIFE VERSATILITY
Aside from the range of conversions available, the Caddy Maxi Life comes with manual and automatic transmissions. If the wheelchair or scooter user is looking to drive the vehicle themselves, having an automatic version is essential.
Similarly, gaining access via the side doors and being able to sit in the front seat is something the Caddy Maxi Life can easily accommodate.
