  • Think about fuel – what is your preference, diesel or petrol?
  • Consider accessibility features such as the angle of the door opening, position of the seat belts and the seat height.
  • Is the seat height and shape of the seat comfortable and correct?
  • Can the seats be adjusted and in what way?
  • What about the seat fabric – some fabrics make it easier than others to get in and out of the vehicle.
  • Make sure you can operate and unlock the door handles with ease.
  • Will the doors open as wide as you would need and can you close them without any trouble?
  • Will you be able to enter the vehicle easily and exit with the same ease?
  • Would you be able to transfer easily from/to a wheelchair if needed?
  • Are the supports and handholds suitable for you?
  • Can you easily lift your legs over the sills into the WAV?
  • Is there room to stow away aids such as walking sticks etc.
  • Can you operate the seatbelt easily?
  • Make sure there is sufficient headroom (especially if you are quite tall) so that you have all round vision out of the windows.
  • Find out what features come as standard and what are extras.
  • Does the boot have sufficient space and can you open and close it with ease?
  • If you need special adaptations make sure they can be fitted to the vehicle you would like.
