How to choose your Motability vehicle: from family cars to city runabouts

Choosing a new car is a hugely exciting experience. It’s fun to dream about all the possibilities in store – making the only difficult bit narrowing down your choice!

Here at TrustFord, we understand that anyone starting a Motability car search could need a vehicle for a whole range of reasons, which is why our local dealerships offer expert advice tailored to your specific situation. Prior to your visit, it may be worth making a list of all the things you need from your new car and what you will mainly use it for.

To help you, we’ve taken a look at what cars are available on Motability and which one may be the right one for you.

The best TrustFord Motability car for… driving around town

Getting your own car opens up a world of opportunities – the increased freedom can be a real game-changer.

If you regularly pop into town for shopping or to meet a friend for coffee, a compact car is a huge help – it means you can slide into a tight parking space right opposite the shops and spend more time doing what you went there for and less looking for an elusive parking space.

For those on the Motability car scheme, the Ford Fiesta is certainly worth a look. It’s a compact car with enough space in the boot for a weekly shop and is economical enough that you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank for fuel.

The best TrustFord Motability car for… tackling long commutes

For many Motability scheme users, taking public transport to get to and from work may not be an option.

Perhaps it’s due to the time and effort it takes you to make your way to the bus stop. Maybe it’s the overwhelming nature of a crowded train at peak times. Or perhaps the public transport in your area simply doesn’t run regularly enough to make it practical.

If you’re looking for a relatively relaxing start and end to the working day, an SUV (sport utility vehicle) is a great option. It looks great when pulling up to the office and is versatile enough to take the family on holiday with plenty of room.

The Ford Kuga is a modern take on the SUV car and the latest model is available on the Motability scheme in both automatic and manual drive. It also comes with adaptive cruise control, meaning that whatever bumps come up during the day, the journey home should be a smooth one.

Why go on holiday with your Motability vehicle?

While many people will want their Motability car as a daily runner, there are plenty of people who only get the car out of the garage at weekends for trips to visit family or have a weekend away from the hustle and bustle.

So, what do you need in a weekend getaway car?

Plenty of space is a must. One of the great things about a staycation or a driving holiday is not having to worry about baggage limits and cramming as much stuff into your hand luggage as possible.

But while space is important, you also need to know you can get where you need to without worrying about steep hills or ragged country lanes putting an end to your adventure.

The Ford EcoSport is a small SUV that can tackle most of the tricky terrain you may encounter and has plenty of space for those UK holiday essentials like raincoats, sunscreen, windbreakers, wellies, a tent…

The best TrustFord Motability car for… getting around with the kids

Anyone who’s ever had a child or even been within a few yards of one knows how much ‘stuff’ you accumulate – whether you intend to or not.

TrustFord has a number of great options available on the Motability car scheme for families looking for something practical that can pack in all your child’s important belongings.

Those eyeing something that combines style with practicality should take a look at the seven-seater Ford S-MAX. Available in both manual and automatic, the S-MAX looks great and can fit your kids and all their paraphernalia in with room to spare.

For families that need even more space, the eight-seater Ford Grand Tourneo Connect is robust enough to deal with any seat-kicking tantrum and can accommodate a small army with ease.
