Tips for choosing the right Motability car

As a Motability Scheme user you can access a brand new model every three years as part of your lease agreement.

Costs relating to servicing and maintenance, replacement tyres, road tax, insurance and more are all covered by your regular payment, leaving you to focus on your next journey.

Picking the right Toyota or Citroën model that is perfect for your circumstances is important in ensuring your best driving experience, so there are a few things you should think about when deciding.


Your mobility requirements

  • Toyota’s range has something for almost any motorist, but not every model may be right for the adaptations you require.

  • Before selecting your vehicle or making your application you should first consider what adaptations you may need and which models they can be made to.

  • Typical adaptations include driving, stowage and access modifications to help you start and finish every journey in comfort.

  • You should also consider automatic or manual model options.

Your typical journeys

  • The vehicle you lease needs to be the right fit for the journeys you make often. 

  • If you have a big family, the seven-seat Toyota Prius+ is a practical choice. The Toyota Land Cruiser SUV is a capable towing car and is ideal if you usually holiday by caravan, while the Citroën C1 excels in the city. 

  • It is also important to think about the space and features you need in the cabin. Flexible seating, an adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat, and handy storage areas can all make travelling much easier.

Your Motability allowance and budget

  • Your lease payment and how much your chosen car will cost to run are other important factors to think carefully about.
  • The Scheme uses your government mobility allowance to fund the lease agreement, so you need to make sure the amount you receive will cover your weekly payment.
  • This also includes costs such as insurance, road tax, and servicing, although fuel is one expense you need to pay for.
  • Choosing the most economical engine will help to keep fuel consumption low and your costs down.
