Volkswagen Caddy Wheelchair Accessible Conversion
The VW Caddy Maxi Life is one of the most popular vehicles on the market wheelchair and scooter use conversion. 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 which enable disabled passengers to access the vehicle without having to transfer from their wheelchair or scooter onto the car seats.
Why You Should Choose a Volkswagen Caddy WAV
As standard, the Caddy Maxi Life comes with seven passenger seats and acres of space! However, this is reduced to five seats (including the driver) when it is converted to accommodate a wheelchair or scooter user which is still excellent given it's neat footprint. You can still transport up to six people and if you do need extra seats, a seven seat option is available at an additional cost, which we can help you organise.
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.
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 and suits your needs best.
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 so getting in and out of the Caddy Maxi could take less than two minutes.
The Caddy's features and styling
The wheelchair or scooter passenger can be held securely in their seat by the vehicle’s four wheelchair restraints whilst passenger is enhanced by additional features such as the six airbag system, electronic stability control and ABS braking.
And although the main purpose of this wheelchair conversion is to transport a wheelchair or scooter user with minimum disruption, it doesn't mean it can't have an attractive design and desirable features. Despite being 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.
