Maximise family days out in your Wheelchair Accessible Car

There’s still a few weeks of summer left (its officially until 23rd September, although it may not feel like it right now!). So lets hope for an Indian Summer in September and enjoy the lighter nights until autumn arrives.

If you’re looking to buy a new Wheelchair Accessible Car for you and your family then you may be wondering which model will easily enable you to get out and enjoy some fun-filled times together. In our latest blog we take a look at the benefits of the new Dacia Jogger Wheelchair Accessible Car in more detail, (including the seating and storage options) and also explore a range of activities disability car users can enjoy with their families. Read on to find out more.

At Sirus we have extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to rear entry WAVs. The Dacia Rear Passenger is our 6 seater wheelchair accessible car, and we’re proud to offer it to our customers. It has won multiple awards including Auto Express Family Car of the Year, Motor Awards Value Car of the Year and the overall winner of AA Ireland.

Mr and Mrs Russell tell us about their experience in their new Dacia Jogger. “To be able to fit myself plus another five people in the car is fantastic. We will use all of the rear seats on the occasions we are taking our grandchildren on holiday. Some of the other cars we looked at only had one other rear seat. The car also has roof bars as standard so we can easily transport our luggage”. Read more in their Dacia Jogger blog.

Key benefits

  • Our conversion offers a spacious and flexible interior that can accommodate driver, five passengers, and one wheelchair user in the rear.
  • It has a rear manual tailgate and ramp which provides easy access for wheelchair users.
  • The conversion has been designed so that the wheelchair user sits alongside the other rear passenger when two seats are folded down, a great feature to ensure inclusion for children.
  • You can easily fold away one, two or three of the mid-row seats to maximise interior space for luggage and additional equipment.
  • Daica Jogger Extreme featurs Media Display, featuring an 8-inch touchscreen and Media Nav with integrated navigation.
  • Driver Assistance – if the vehicle in front slows down or stops, the driver is notified by a dual audio and visual warning. If response is slow or insufficient, braking assistance is automatically applied.
