    Coming early Spring next year and VW say it will cost “well under £30K”. There’s a 1.5 dual clutch, 7-speed auto available.  I still can’t decide whether I like it or not! I mean… an SUV with a soft top??? Hmmm…

    I hope it does better than the Nissan Murano suv whatever it was called that was sold. I don’t know if it was offered in UK.

    Which Mobility Car

    Ive watched the video and cant work out if I think it is amazing or hilarious. It does look like a bathtub with a windscreen.

    Well I was in the minority that liked the Evoque convertible, so yes, I like the idea of this. Basically it’s a convertible that I can probably get in AND out of! Hope it’s on in three years time plus similar alternatives.

    I guess it would be of use to some on the scheme that may have lost lower limbs as they could at least use the back seats.

    Such a large car with such little space inside, all because they need somewhere to put the ragtop, ideal for singles/couples that don’t need any kind of mobility equipment.

    not everyone needs a huge space for scooters/whelchairs vinalspin.

    car makers make cars for the non disabled too.

    or do we ban all cars from the scheme that cant fit a scooter etc.

    Is it just me or does he look like his eyeline blocked by the top off the screen.

    I think I’d be the same being 6’3”

    im not a fan myself I can also see getting out if there are no disabled bays would be a problem with those extra long doors wacking into the car next to you.

    Nope but most of us have legs, although they don’t work great we still would need somewhere to put them if we sat in the back.

    Base model under £28k so pricing shouldn’t be a problem.

    Be great for me, I’d be able to get in and out with the roof opened 🙂

    No chance of doing it otherwise!

    There's room for all God's creatures, right next to the mash and gravy 🙂

    people people, all disabilities are different, personally it will be a refreshing change to have this option as opposed to having to chose from manufacturers low end cars, all of which are ok but as I said a different choice.

    I hoped VW might have put this car on Motability but unfortunately they haven’t. It is a shame Motability customers only have the Mini as an option now if they want a cabriolet. The BMW 2 Series convertible used to be on and the Mazda MX5. I would love this as a second car for the summer. I don’t think VW will continue to make it much longer though because the sales figures can’t be great. I have only seen two T Roc Cabriolets since the car came out and the UK is supposed to be be a big market for convertibles or at least it was.

    Test drove one of these (to see if the suspension is comfy, no hardtop available). Very comfy, easy to enter/exit and just so enjoyable with hood down. Only drawback is that it is more than a bit underpowered with the 1.5L engine, what with all the extra weight of the retractable hood and stuff. Sadly, I agree it won’t make it on to scheme so any droptop enthusiasts will have to go for the Mini and hope their backbones will survive the suspension!
