The dynamic Ford Connect Up Front Passenger provides an ideal solution for Motability car passengers. Vic Young believe the edge this vehicle has over other wheelchair accessible cars is considerably high.

Nearside wheelchair loading means that the disabled passenger can sit safely and securely upfront, side by side with the driver. Concerned about headroom? Don’t be; there is a maximum 5.75” headroom for the wheelchair user. The wheelchair is secured up front with a four-point restraint system, guaranteeing a robust, comfortable experience for the wheelchair passenger.

When it comes to loading the wheelchair into the Ford Connect, an automatic turntable loading system with a manual slide out ramp is the answer. Once in the vehicle, the lowered floor provides eye-line height for the disabled passenger.

The vehicle has five points of entry- two front doors, two side sliding doors and a lift-up rear door. A large enclosed boot is extremely spacious, allowing room for wheelchairs and extra equipment. Because of the nature of the up front design, there is no loss of seating or luggage space.

The Up Front Ford Connect is the perfect disability car for wheelchair users who would like to be seated next to the driver and feel safe and secure knowing that the vehicle has been specially adapted to meet their needs and requirements.
