Why lease a 7-seat Motability Car?

Motability vehicles come in all sizes, and for customers looking to lease a larger vehicle through the Motability Scheme, 7-seaters are a popular option thanks to their range of benefits:

  • They're really roomy - great for carrying mobility aids
  • They can carry a lot of people and/or luggage
  • A lot of them have sliding side doors for easier access to the rear
  • Many can be easily converted into wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs)

Take a look through some of the best 7-seater Motability cars available right now from popular manufacturers such as Vauxhall and Citroën. We've highlighted our top picks below:

Vauxhall Combo Life Electric

Vauxhall Combo Life, Driving

Vauxhall had a big void to fill when they stopped building the Zafira MPV, and the 7-seater Combo Life Electric has stepped into its shoes brilliantly, bringing with it bags of space, practicality, and comfort.

Its ease of access features include sliding side doors on both sides of the car, plus three individual rear seats that can fit three child seats side-by-side. Because they're individual seats, they can be folded flat independently, and one or both of the rearmost seats can be removed entirely if you like.

The Lift-up rear tailgate provides a huge opening in which to load cargo, and its boxy shape makes it extra useful.

It's great value too, with low advance payments available.

Find your perfect Motability car with Evans Halshaw

As you made your way through this list, you'll have noticed that 7-seaters come in two different forms: MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) and SUV (sport utility vehicle).

If you prefer ease of access, practicality, and a great all-round ability to transport people and stuff, go for the MPV. Their overall roominess and family-friendly features can't be matched by any other vehicles.

Looking for something a bit more stylish? You may be better off with an SUV. They're definitely on-trend right now and some even have the added bonus of optional four-wheel drive too, plus the raised ride height gives you a great view of the road.

All of the above vehicles are available with the Evans Halshaw Motability Scheme. Every single one of our new car dealerships is Motability accredited, so if you need any more information or want to book a test drive, contact your nearest one today.
