The All-New Sirus VW Caddy 5 Has Arrived
Based on the same elements that underpin the VW Golf, this is the first time the VW Caddy Maxi Life has ever shared its basic engineering with passenger car models. It has more digital functions and greater comfort than ever before.
With years of knowledge and experience, we have created the ultimate conversion, ergonomically designed to provide optimum levels of comfort and space. Precision engineering and expertise have enabled us to design a flat, lowered floor conversion that offers an exceptional driving position.
Drive and Transfer Internally
You can enter the vehicle from the rear, secure your wheelchair safely inside the vehicle and transfer across to a standard VW driver’s seat. This means you can enjoy travelling from an OEM seat without transferring by the roadside.
Entering and Exiting the VW Caddy WAV
Our rear entry conversion allows easy access to the driving 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
Our VW Caddy WAV is designed with an automated tailgate and ramp, ensuring complete independence. The key fob opens the tailgate and ramp and you can safely enter the vehicle using the shallow ramp. Once you are comfortably in the driver position, simply press a button on the dashboard or the key fob and the tailgate and ramp will close.
Low, Anti-Slip Ramp
Our automated ramp 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. We can fit bespoke grab rails should you require that extra help.
Seating and Storage
The vehicle is fitted with a powered six-way seat base that moves up and down, forwards and backwards and rotates 90 degrees. (please note, the picture shows a six-way seat in the Ford Connect for demonstration purposes).
As standard, there is space for the driver and one front passenger. There is space in the rear to fit one or two additional fold-down seats, giving you space for up to four people. We can also fit bespoke solutions to secure any equipment or shopping. Please ask us about our adaptations service.
Securing Your Wheelchair
Your wheelchair will be safely secured behind the front passenger seat either with straps or an automated wheelchair locking system, depending on your chair. We can discuss the options with you on your demonstration. Watch our demonstration video.
Travel Upfront Next to the Driver
If and when you don’t want to drive, you can remove the front passenger seat and secure your wheelchair in the front passenger position. The seat can be removed as it is on castors, so no lifting is required.
Other seating options include;
Drive From Wheelchair – with the option to switch to upfront passenger
