Upfront Wheelchair Vehicles
For most people, a wheelchair car that allows the wheelchair user to travel between to 2 back seats is perfectly adequate.
Front Seat Conversions
For those who would like the luxury of traveling upfront beside the driver, there are wheelchair cars available which allow this. It is ideal for couples who like to be able to chat as they drive along.
The conversion is much more expensive than a rear travel wheelchair car. A larger floor cut out means that it can cost over £10,00.00 to do on the new vehicle.
There are usually less extra seats in this type of conversion- Fiat Multiplas can have 2 folding rear seats but most just have the one rear passenger seat. This allows the wheelchair user to go in through the back and get up to the front.
If most of your journeys are just you and a driver and you like to be in a comfortable position in the front then this could be the conversion for you.
