The Volkswagen Caddy Upfront offers a better quality journey being sat alongside the driver with much better visibility than sitting in the back.
Inside the vehicle, our lowered floor section stretches right to the upfront passenger position giving generous class-leading headroom of up to 55″. Thanks to the lowered floor, your centre of gravity sat in your chair will remain low, providing excellent comfort and handling. Gives an excellent drive with VW’s smooth and refined 1.6 diesel engine with an automatic gearbox.
VW Drive From Wheelchair – Conversion Features
VW UpFront Wheelchair passenger vehicle has a fully lowered floor throughout. This will ensure excellent visibility for passengers. This compact fuel-efficient vehicle is suitable for taller wheelchair users. The conversion has been designed with exceptional interior space, the width of the conversion is maximised which will accommodate most larger powered wheelchairs. We pride ourselves on the quality of our conversions, which are designed to blend in with the original vehicle, giving a near seamless finish.
Our rear entry drive from wheelchair conversion allows easy access to the passenger position. The benefit of rear entry is you can park in a standard parking space and don’t need a disabled parking bay to get in and out.
Fully Automated Tailgate and Ramp
To ensure complete independence, this conversion is designed with an automated tailgate and ramp with lowering suspension. As you approach the vehicle, your key fob will open the tailgate and ramp, the suspension will lower so you can safely enter the vehicle using the shallow ramp. Once you are comfortable in the passenger position, simply press a button on the dashboard or the key fob and the tailgate and ramp will close and the suspension will rise.
Low, Anti-Slip Ramp
Our automated ramp with lowering suspension is below 11 degrees, ensuring you can enter and exit with ease. The ramp is designed with an anti-slip coating, improving wheel traction in wet weather. The interior floor of the vehicle is also designed with an anti-slip material.
Seating and Storage
As standard, there is one rear passenger seat behind the driver, and space in the rear to fit one or two additional fold-down seats, giving you space for up to five people. We can also fit bespoke solutions to secure any equipment or shopping.
