Choosing a new wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Mercedes V-Class WAV

Mercedes V-Class WAV

The Mercedes V-Class wheelchair accessible vehicle, combining good looks, safety and sophistication to arrive in style.

Packed with technology, the Mercedes V-Class comes equipped with everything you should need from leather upholstery and COMAND Online multimedia system to heated front seats; the spacious V-Class cabin is beautifully appointed and generously equipped to provide style and comfort.

The vehicle is first modified to make it fully wheelchair accessible and then adapted by Steering Developments, as required. The vehicle modification for Wheelchair access is carried out by Lewis Reed where you will also benefit from the new Sure-Fit 200®. A comfortable discreetly installed wheelchair tie-down and occupant system, designed to combat difficulties when trying to get the wheelchair users seat belts to fit comfortably. The system has been successfully tested to secure heavy wheelchairs weighing up to 200kg.

The Steering Development team will advise you on the the best vehicle adaptations from the extensive range of solutions we have available. Because we are independent and with over 35 years experience, we only recommend the wheelchair accessible vehicles that will be most suitable for your needs.
