Why buy a 4x4 car on the Motability Scheme?

4x4 Motability cars provide disabled drivers with enhanced driving stability and grip, particularly in inclement weather conditions such as rain, snow and ice. They're also better at tackling rough terrain and loose surfaces, making them ideal if you live off the beaten path.

The Motability Scheme itself lets you exchange your disability living allowance payments for a vehicle, helping you to stay mobile and live life to the full.

What 4x4 Motability cars are there?

All of the recommendations below are SUVs, which bring their own benefits. A high-up driving position makes it easy to climb in and out of the driver's seat, while practicality and comfort levels are high, too.

Brands such as Hyundai, Peugeot, MINI, Dacia, and Kia all offer excellent four-wheel drive cars on the Motability Scheme. Those looking for a Land Rover 4x4 on Motability will be disappointed, as the brand does not sell cars through the scheme.

The best 4x4 cars available on the Motability Scheme inlcude:

Hyundai Tucson PHEV

Hyundai Tucson 4x4 Plug-in Hybrid

The Hyundai Tucson is available in four-wheel drive form on the Motability Scheme, as long as you're happy specifying the plug-in hybrid powertrain.

You will no doubt be satisfied with this option, given that the Tucson Plug-in Hybrid is an excellent all-round vehicle. Practicality is good, the driving experience is refined and the powertrain is a superbly executed piece of engineering.

When fully charged, it can travel up to 34 miles in EV mode, using no petrol at all. After that, it automatically switches to hybrid mode, where the petrol engine and electric motor work together for maximum efficiency.

MINI Countryman ALL4

MINI Countryman ALL4

The MINI Countryman is the four-wheel drive Motability car that gives you the most choice in terms of specification.

There are several engine and model grade combinations available, leaving you to decide whether you want maximum performance and features or a lower advance payment.

Using MINI's ALL4 all-wheel drive system, the entry-level 1.5-litre Cooper Classic will get you around just fine, while the 2.0-litre models add significantly more zip when you press the throttle pedal.

Automatic gearboxes are available, as are additional "packs" that give you more comfort features and tech.

Dacia Duster 4x4

Dacia Duster 4x4 Off-Roading

Pleasingly, the diesel 4x4 versions of the Dacia Duster have been made available to customers on the Motability Scheme. This is great news because the Duster is one of the best four-wheel drive cars out there.

It makes light work of hills and rough terrain, thanks not only to the four driven wheels, but the high ground clearance helps, too. Electronic aids such as Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control help you to stay in control on steep slopes.

Other handy features include a built-in compass and altimeter in the infotainment system, helping you to stay informed about where you're headed.

Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4

The Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 is another example of an excellent plug-in hybrid Motability car with 4x4 capabilities. It's a powerful model too, with the turbocharged petrol engine and electric motor combining for a total of 300bhp when in Sport mode.

Pure electric range is up to 40 miles, after which the car switches back into hybrid mode, allowing you to continue on your way.

Standard equipment is extraordinary on top-of-the-line Peugeots nowadays, and the 3008 Hybrid4 is no exception. Standard equipment includes 3D navigation, parking sensors and voice recognition technology.

Kia Sportage

 

The latest generation of the Kia Sportage came to market in 2022, bringing with it a range of advanced equipment, sharp new looks, and intelligent hybrid variants.

Both the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and full hybrid (HEV) powertrains come with four-wheel drive availability, giving you the option dependent upon what suits your lifestyle. The Sportage's optimised drivetrain layout allows for a super comfortable cabin, too, with supple amounts of head and legroom throughout.

If you opt for the PHEV, you can expect up to 43 miles of emissions-free, electric-only range when the batteries are fully charged. The HEV is equally impressive, offering super-efficient fuel economy figures and a punchy engine to get where you need to be.

All in all, Kia have ensured the Sportage is ideal for those that need a lot of room. Its comfortable ride and long list of gadgets make it a tough car to compete with.
