BMW X1 Motability car

BMW X1

The new X1 is sportier, lighter by up to 135kg and has more room due to the engine being turned by 90 degrees and changing from rear to front wheel drive.

Mrecedes CLA Motability Car

Mercedes CLA

The CLA is the 4 door saloon version of the A Class, it is similar in size to an Audi A3 Saloon only better looking, it is a real eye catcher. Prices start at £1599 Advance Payment for the 1.6 petrol and go up to £2999 for the 4 wheel drive Automatic CLA220 AMG Sport.

 

 

Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake Motability CarMercedes CLA ‘Shooting Brake’

The Shooting Brake is a cross between an estate and a coupé and there are few better looking cars on the market, not as practical as a full estate and rear headroom may be a little compromised but the rear tailgate adds practicality.  Prices range from £1599 for the 1.6 petrol manual to £2999 for the 4 wheel drive Automatic CLA220 AMG Sport.

 

 

Mercedes C-Class Motability Car

Mercedes C-Class

The new C-Class Mercedes looks good, as a 4 door saloon or estate, in a classily understated way, it is also better equipped than the BMW 3 series as standard with synthetic leather seats, dual-zone climate control, auto headlights and wipers, cruise control and a seven-inch colour display on all models. Only available as a C200 with a 1.6 diesel that offers 134bhp or a 2.0 litre petrol with 181bhp. Prices start at £1799 Advance Payment and rise to £2999 for the C200d sport estate, that’s a lot of money for a 1.6 litre diesel.

 

Hyundai Santa FE Motability Car

Hyundai Santa FE

The Santa FE is a large all wheel drive seven seat SUV with a powerful 2.2 litre diesel engine (197bhp). If you live remotely and need space this is your car, or if you tow a caravan the Santa Fe is a very well respected vehicle in the community, the 2500kg braked tow weight will make light work of almost any caravan (2000kg as an automatic) and the Premium trim is very well equipped and do go for the seven seat model as it includes ‘self levelling suspension’ which the 5 seat version does not. Priced at £1999 for a manual and £2999 for the Automatic.

 

Toyota Prius Motability car

Toyota Prius

The new Hybrid Prius has a more angular look that could divide opinion but what remains constant is the combination of a 98hp 1.8-litre petrol engine and a 72hp electric motor allowing it to return a quoted fuel economy of 94mpg and CO2 emissions of just 70g/km. If you want to go green and need the range that a full electric cannot give then Hybrid is the way forward. The smaller Toyota Yaris Hybrid (74 mpg) does not match the economy of the Prius but is available without an Advance Payment. The Prius is £1695 in Active trim or a whopping £2195 in Business Edition spec.

Volvo XC60 motability car front

Volvo XC60

The XC60 has been on the Scheme for three quarters,  the orders have been flowing for Volvo and the order book is filling up, customers are now being quoted over four months for delivery, but the super SUV remains on the Scheme for Q2 2016.

New Motability Prices Q2 1st April 2016

New Motability Prices

New Prices (Spring) released 1st April 2016

Friday 1st April 2016 will see the release of the Quarter 2 (Spring) Motability prices. Please post your comments and ask questions at the bottom of the page as we are all here to help each other. We are fortunate to have some regular contributors, that we really value, who are kind enough to impart their knowledge. The Quarter 2 (Spring) price period is from April 1st and runs through to 31st March 2016.

From 1st April we will update you on all the movements (up and down) on this page, we will continue to post the War Pension (WPMS) prices alongside the DLA/PIP prices. WPMS weekly payments are presently £64.15 compared to £57.45 for DLA/PIP therefore these prices are generally £1000 less than those of DLA/PIP.  Even with this extra award there are no more cars available to War Pensioners. Every movement up or down on the previous price can be tracked with our little arrows. means the price has increased (if you place your mouse on the arrow you can see by how much the price has increased) and if the price has decreased you will see a green arrow Price reduced from previous quarter price or is there is no change in price the arrows will be side by side .

Price Freeze

Disability benefits, including Personal Independence Payment, and Disability Living Allowance are uprated in line with the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) and the changes are applied in April of each year. The CPI was announced to have fallen in the year to September 2015 so this means that these benefits will not be increased from April 2016, we are not sure how this will impact the cars avaialble on the scheme but it’s not great news for the long term.
