Upfront wheelchair accessible vehicle
The Sirus Volkswagen Upfront is designed so that you can travel up front alongside the driver all from the comfort of your own wheelchair; a much more sociable way to travel with an upfront wheelchair accessible vehicle. Sitting in the upfront position as opposed to the rear ensures that you will experience a more comfortable ride and excellent all-around vision. It offers space for up to five people, the perfect family car.
ENTERING & EXITING THE VEHICLE
Automated Tailgate and Ramp
Our exclusive automatic tailgate and ramp system ensures complete ease of use when accessing an upfront wheelchair accessible vehicle. To access the car simply press a button on the key fob and the tailgate will open quietly and quickly. Once inside the car, press the button on the dashboard, the ramp and tailgate will close automatically leaving you ready to drive away.
Manual Tailgate and Ramp
A more economical option for drivers who don’t require any assistance; the manual ramp is bi-folding in order to ensure that it doesn’t obscure rear vision. The ramp has a shallow angle at around 12 degrees and is fitted with a gas strut to make opening and closing as easy as possible.
VW Caddy Life
Based on Volkswagen’s Caddy Life short wheelbase, this model is available as a 5-speed manual or VW’s popular dual clutch 6 speed DSG transmission, changing fluidly at the right time to the next gear. The economical yet powerful 2.0 diesel engine offers fantastic miles per gallon and low Co2 emissions. All vehicles are compliant with Euro 6 Emission Standard. Sharing much of the same switchgear and design as the popular Volkswagen Touran, the Caddy provides smooth driving and comfort, alongside VW’s well-known build quality and reliability.
