Why buy a 4x4 car on the Motability Scheme?

4x4 Motability cars are great for those who want enhanced levels of driving stability and grip, which is often living in the UK, what with our unpredictable weather.

They are particularly useful with battling conditions that involve snow, rain and terrain involving loose surfaces and mud - ideal then if you live in more rural locations.

What 4x4 Motability cars are there?

All of the examples below are SUVs, which offer many sought-after benefits. A raised driving position makes it easier to climb in and out of the seats, whilst practicality is enhanced along with comfort, too.

However, not all the SUVs out there available on Motability are all-wheel drive. Some are simply two-wheel drive as many drivers will not need the full 4x4 experience, so we've included some of those too for good measure.

Nissan X-Trail

Nissan X-Trail

Available on the Motability scheme with e-4ORCE all-wheel drive, the Nissan X-Trail is a range-topping SUV that showcases the excellence of Nissan SUV capabilities.

It's available with 5 or 7-seat configurations, along with e-POWER which is Nissan's name for electric technology. The good thing here is that the X-Trail doesn't need plugging in, despite electrical input as it's essentially a MHEV, giving the X-Trail smoother and quieter performance.

Elsewhere, multiple modes mean this SUV can make the best of any situation with Eco, Normal, Sport, Snow and Off-Road making the X-Trail a fine choice when adapting to multiple situations or driving moods.

Alternative two-wheel drive SUVs

Despite their appearance, not all SUVs are all-wheel drive. Some are simply two-wheel drive. This means they are less expensive to produce and buy and are more suited to normal road conditions, rather than having off-road capabilities too.

Peugeot 3008

Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4

The Peugeot 3008 is another popular and stylish SUV which is available on the Motability Scheme in a number of attractive specifications.

Its style ensures it stands out for all the right reasons in a crowded SUV sector. Peugeot have really excelled with their SUV design in recent times, and the feline sleekness of the 3008 makes it one of the sharpest looking on the market and perfect for families or those who want decent levels of practicality, whilst not sacrificing on style.

Choose from a number of trim levels, which increase the Motability advance payment the further you go up the range. However, even the Active Premium+ trim gets Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, cruise control, reversing camera, an 8-inch HD touchscreen infotainment screen and stylish 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels.

Ford Puma

Ford Puma MHEV

It's not just all-wheel drive SUVs that are available on the Motability scheme. Some customers may not need the complex nature of a 4x4, but are still looking for the chunky looks and enhanced practicality an SUV brings.

One of the best alternatives in that respect comes in the form of the Ford Puma. With appealing styling, good practicality and powered by Ford's fantastic EcoBoost petrol engine, which features mild hybrid (MHEV) technology, it offers a boost in performance as well as enhancing fuel economy. And all this is possible without the need for plugging in.

Interior fit and finish is excellent too, along with offering plenty of practicality and functionality.

It's called the 'Vizor' and incorporates the grille, headlights and the griffin logo in one single sweep across the front of the car.

Citroën C3 Aircross

Citro├źn C3 Aircross

Another great offering on the Motability scheme is the funky looking Citroën C3 Aircross.

This chunky and funky offering is for those who like a quirky car. But if you know a thing or two about Citroën, you'll know they are famed for their trick suspension and therefore offer many cars which are ultra comfortable.

The C3 Aircross is no different and offers decent levels of comfort along with enhanced practicality. The interior perfectly complements the interesting exterior by offering a digitised interior full of tech.

With multiple versions available on the scheme, the Citroën C3 Aircross is another fine SUV to consider.
