Getting the best deal on a mobility car doesn’t mean limiting yourself to the smallest or lowest powered models available. As our pick of the 10 best mobility car deals shows, there’s a wide range of cars out there at keen prices to fit in with your requirements.
MG3 1.5 VTI-Tech Excite - £47.20 a week
With a weekly payment of just £47.20, the MG3 1.5 VTI-Tech Excite is one of the most affordable cars you can pick on the Motability Scheme. That keen price means you get to keep £14 of your full allowance. The Dacia Sandero may be cheaper but the MG3 comes with more kit. It can be driven by under-25s and has been much improved since it was facelifted.

If you like a bit of wind in your locks as you drive along, a convertible is fun but options are limited for mobility drivers, but with the Citroen C1 1.0 VTi Airscape Flair Convertible. It’s available with a roll-back fabric roof that’s like a giant sunroof. It’s quick and easy to use and still gives good refinement when it’s shut. This Citroen comes in with a weekly rental of £55, letting you hang on to £6.20 of your full allowance.
Renault Captur 0.9 TCe Play - £56.25 a week
The Renault Captur is one of the most popular compact crossovers for good reason. It’s enjoyable to drive, looks great and offers more interior space than the majority of its competitors.

The Kia Stonic is one of our favourite small crossovers thanks to its smooth driving manners and refined nature. It’s also well equipped in 2 trim, so you don’t miss out on life’s luxuries. All of this can be had with the peppy 1.4-litre petrol engine for £58.50 per week, letting you collect the £2.95 left over from the weekly rental cost.

All of this costs £61.20 per week.

Toyota’s Prius has been the poster car for hybrids for many years now and it’s easy to see why with this Icon model.

The 1.5-litre diesel is refined and the Acenta Premium is well equipped as standard.
MINI Countryman 1.5 Cooper Classic - £61.20 a week
MINI knows how to package fun into all shapes and sizes, so the Countryman is a good choice for mobility users looking for something a little funky to drive.
