Not all of us can get in and out of cars as easily as other. Whether we have reached a certain age or have a disability, there is the option of getting cars that are great for accessibility and mobility. We’ve compiled a list of just a few of the best cars for accessibility for your consideration.
The Vauxhall Astra has been rated one of the best family hatchbacks for accessibility thanks to its five door model. With the five-door model, you find it easier to climb in and out than you do in the three door model. The doors also open wider on Astra’s five door model than on its rival’s similar models.
For drivers, you will find your seat to be height adjustable, with the steering wheel partially adjustable as well, delivering an easy driving position for you. The front passenger also has plenty of headroom and legroom available. In the rear, space is generous with plenty of headroom and knee room available. This makes it easier for you to slip into with the five-door model because the rear doors are large.
The Astra also stands on the average height, not too tall or too low. Just right for almost everyone.
Citroen C4 Picasso
