The Sirus VW Upfront Passenger conversion is designed so that you can travel up front alongside the driver from the comfort of your own wheelchair; a much more sociable way to travel.  As a wheelchair passenger, sitting in the upfront position as opposed to the rear ensures you will experience a more comfortable ride and excellent all-round vision. You can chat with the driver, change the temperature and play whatever music you like! Combined with the reliability of the VW Caddy Life, this vehicle is one of the most popular wheelchair passenger upfront vehicles in the UK.  It’s compact, fuel-efficient and easier to park than most wheelchair accessible vehicles.

Wheelchair Passenger Upfront Conversion Features

The Sirus VW Upfront Passenger has a fully lowered floor throughout. This will ensure excellent visibility when you are sitting in the front and is ideal for taller chair users. The conversion has been designed with exceptional interior space, the width of the conversion is maximised which will accommodate most large wheelchairs.  We pride ourselves on the quality of our conversions, which are designed to blend in with the original vehicle, giving a near seamless finish.

Rear Entry

Our rear entry VW Caddy wheelchair accessible vehicle allows you to easily access the vehicle from any parking bay, you don’t actually need a disabled parking space to get in and out. The tailgate and ramp can either be manually or automatically operated depending on your preference.

Automated Tailgate and Ramp

For ease, many of our customers prefer an upfront passenger wav with a fully automated tailgate and ramp option with lowering suspension. No bending or lifting required it will open and close at the touch of a button. A great option to assist drivers, simply press a button on the key fob and the vehicle suspension will lower and the tailgate and ramp will open. Once inside, press the button on the dashboard or the key fob to automatically close the tailgate and ramp and lift the suspension. The ramp angle is below 11 degrees.

Manual Tailgate and Ramp

A more economical option is our manual tailgate and ramp conversion without lowering suspension. The manual ramp is lightweight, spring-assisted and bi-folding to ensure it doesn’t block your rearview. The ramp is below 13 degrees, ensuring you can enter and exit safely.

Anti-Slip Ramp

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.

  • “Thank you for the help/support I always receive. I currently own a WAV supplied by Sirus, I’m looking forward to receiving my second vehicle soon as I’d be so housebound without a WAV. Thank you.”

  • “I would like to thank Lenna for her great service. She helped us through a somewhat dark time over the last four months and we are very pleased with the outcome. I would also like to thank Kate, she helped when Lenna was unavailable and lastly I would like to thank Scott. He was very patient and nothing seemed to bother him. everything was explained very well. You have a fantastic team thank you again for looking after us.”

  • “To say the Caddy has transformed my life is an understatement.  I have done so many things in the past week or so I haven’t done for literally years. From the simple joy of collecting my son from a school trip to spending a day at the shore. No more struggle transferring or even getting to the car. Now it’s all done with ease. I have received many compliments on how elegant the Caddy looks and folk saying how great it is I can get out now. My 88-year-old mother was in the furthest rear fold down seat to go to the Father’s Day lunch and said all that was missing for her was a foot stool for her feet, she was stretched out and sang all the way there saying why stop let’s get the ferry to France! All in all, I am delighted with the Caddy”.

  • “Would just like to say thank you from a carer’s point of view!  The Sirus car has revolutionised our lives, life is so simple now, it is indeed a Click and Go solution to life!  The addition of a big van mirror sideways onto the back of the passenger seat has made life easier from a reversing point of view, something that you might consider in future? But really, I just wanted to say thanks for making my life so much easier and my husband’s life so much more fun!”

    Gill , Greater Manchester
  • “We were very impressed with the care, assistance and patience of the Sirus team that they showed before and post-delivery. The test drives for my care staff, as well as their instructions for me ensured that these had really sunk in. I cannot praise the Grants department at Motability or Sirus Automotive highly enough; thanks Sirus for making such a difference to my life”. 

    Tim , Lancashire
  • “I would like to congratulate you on my car. I have great confidence in my Sirus car. I now travel alone and feel completely independent. It has made such a difference to my life being able to pop off on my own without an escort. Thank you so much for all your help and consideration in the past few months”.
