Good wheelchair-accessible vehicles include SUVs, station wagons and vans, according to Edmunds. However, a few sedans also have features that offer access to wheelchair users.
Vans are roomy and often have flexible seating options. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is an excellent choice for people in wheelchairs, according to Edmunds. As it is a full-sized van, it offers lots of head room, which is a useful feature for taller wheelchair users. However, it handles like a smaller vehicle and offers good fuel economy. The Ford Transit Connect also offers plenty of space and access for passengers in wheelchairs.
The Toyota Sienna has a very useful feature for passengers in wheelchairs or those who have limited mobility called the Auto Access lift seat. The seat can rotate and extend from the van, making it easier to get in and out of the vehicle.
The Scion xB is a popular car for wheelchair adaptations. It has a very spacious cabin, which makes it easy to get in and out. The vehicle also offers an optional rear ramp, which provides an access point for wheelchair users.
The 2013 Chevrolet Impala is a good choice for smaller wheelchair adapted vehicles, as it has a front bench seat, which offers better access for wheelchair users. Later versions of the model do not include this feature.
