2023 Ford Tourneo Connect Upfront Drive From/ Passenger
The Sirus Ford Drive / Upfront is designed to enable you to drive from your wheelchair or travel upfront as a passenger from the comfort of your wheelchair. Combined with Ford’s latest Grand Tourneo Connect, this premium Ford wav offers a wide range of features and options giving wheelchair drivers and passengers exceptional comfort and drive quality.

Our unique Ford wav is designed to enable you to drive from your wheelchair and have the option to travel upfront in your wheelchair next to the driver. The conversion has a lowered floor throughout the front of the vehicle, meaning you have exceptional interior space for a compact vehicle and excellent visibility. Our design includes quality sound insulation to ensure low noise levels, offering an unrivalled car-like experience. Unlike many other converted vehicles, our design includes a standard size fuel tank and accurate fuel gauge, perfect for longer journeys. If you want to tow a caravan this is also an option.
Switch Between Wheelchair Driver and Upfront Passenger Positions
Our unique design allows you to switch between wheelchair driver and upfront passenger position. The front seats can safely and easily be detached and moved to the opposite side. For ease, they are on transfer wheels so no lifting is required.
Our side entry design allows you to easily access the vehicle from the curb or a disabled parking space. The conversion is designed with a fully automated ramp and a side sliding door.
Lowering Suspension and UK’s Shortest Ramp
The Ford WAV is available with lowering suspension which has the UK’s shortest ramp – just 70cm long, a huge advantage when parking. Lowering suspension gives the vehicle a pre-set ground clearance to always maintain constant ride height, regardless of the weight within the vehicle. The 4-corner suspension lowers the vehicle when you enter and exit, and when you are ready to drive away the suspension will rise. The ramp is designed with an anti-slip coating, improving wheel traction in wet weather. The interior floor of the vehicle is also designed with an anti-slip material.
Seating and Storage
Your passengers can enjoy the comfort of two original manufacturer rear seats, complemented by a fold-away footrest for added comfort. A spacious boot offers ample space for luggage and equipment and you can also fold down the rear seats should you need additional space. For ease of use when traveling independently we can fit an automated tailgate (optional).
Please ask us about further bespoke options and adaptations. We offer a wide range of driving adaptations that are suited to your exact requirements. Want to read more?
