What types of wheel chair accessible vehicles best fits you or your family members needs?

It is not always easy to decide exactly what vehicles are best suited for your needs. Almost all vehicles can be modified to facilitate accessible transport and insuring the passenger has the right amount of space and comfort for any journey is the priority. Here is a review of the top vehicles designed for wheelchairs while providing comfort and a smooth ride:

 

SUVs– if you are looking for luxury transportation SUVs are defiantly the ones to look at. These cars are stylish and very popular as they are normally fitted with 4 wheel drive which enables comfort on and off road. SUVs such as the Cadillac escalade can come fully equipped with moon roofs, satellite TVs, special lighting making this not just a mobility vehicle but a lifestyle. However this accessibility does not come cheap and once modifications have been made to the car the space for cargo is very small and storage is generally cut in half.

Fully sized vans- Space is the true luxury of this type of vehicle as it provides both height and width. However with this come a number of issues with driving and maneuverability being extremely challenging. These also have very low gas mileage and have a high level of gravity making the vehicles relatively unstable in comparison to others. Also the ability to go off road is limited as well with suspension being less effective and therefore overall comfort during the journey is reduced.

Cars– while these have the best gas mileage and are the easiest to drive and provide the most stylish form of transporting they are not always the easiest to uses for accessible transportation. Due to cars being low to the ground this can create difficulty and risk not only for the person assisting the wheel chair user but also the user as well of injury. Also cars have a very small amount of space and once the wheelchair has been placed in the car almost all the space will have been used up making it almost useless for storing baggage and cargo for a journey.

Minivans– wheelchair minivans are almost certainty the leaders in the market of accessible transportation. This is due to a number of reasons. Not only do minivans provide a lot of interior space like with the fully sized vans but also provide great mileage like the cars and quick easy access like the SUVs. They are almost like the 3 other vehicles in one which is why they are the current market leaders and continue to grow with expectations of sales to double by 2020.

So if you are looking for an efficient, luxurious and most important comfortable means of accessible transport minivans are what you should be looking for. They provide everything you need to insure that the passenger is in an environment where he is relaxed and has no problems with long distances while at the same time providing plenty of space for the other passengers and their baggage.
