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.


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.

  • “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”.
