Audi Allroad / A6 Avant
This is a good car for the Abiloader. Delivery position a little limited by the low boot height and width can be tight for a medium sized chair. http://www.rica.org.uk/2883 Has adjustable air suspension as an option which can aid transfer heights.

Ford Mondeo after MC
This new version has some unfortunate changes that reduce the effectiveness of what was a best-in-class boot! Height of opening is lower: lower corners of the aperture have been rounded a lot. Floor for some random reason slopes up throwing away useful space. It's just packing underneath! Width of the transfer distance from sill edge to seat squab is now 250mm making a big gap to bridge - so our Transfer Bench may well be needed more often.

Very wide and long boot: roomy car: good for Abiloader: will take large wheelchairs. See note on MD onward chassis versions that are less favourable. Date of change is not that helpful: this model may have been sold new up to 2013/2014. This MC does not have exhausts integrated into the bumper. http://www.rica.org.uk/2597

Boot opening shape is very good and square. Likely not to have electric seats: which is a shame as otherwise a great option.

This is about one of the lowest cost sizeable vehicles in the US: and together with the Abiloader would provide impressive independence for the dollars! Some dimensions need confirming with chair size: vertical height looks marginal and some trunk trim will need to be able to be adjusted.

Mazda 6 GJ series
This current model has a very much reduced vertical height and did not look it would fit! But we have done this now and it WILL fit an Abiloader: with some conditions. It is still much less ideal than the earlier car: and so the delivery position is more suited to either a tall driver or requires the transfer bench we sell also. Please talk to us first so you know if it can work for your situation. http://www.rica.org.uk/2918

Mazda 6 or Attenza ->GH
This is a great car for a fairly large chair and an Abiloader. Good boot depth and width. Electric seats can be found: but only in the high-spec models. NOTE: this is GH model: GJ is very much lower in vertical boot size! GH model may sometime show as 2013: depends on country - check the VIN ! http://www.rica.org.uk/2179

Trunk in this car is very large - good width and depth. One of the lowest transfer heights available: electric seats of course. A bit more expensive to fit Abiloader with all the fittings: but fabulous driving manners: comfort and range of engines. 4Matic 4 wheel drive available also in some countries.

Good wide and high boot for a shortish wheelchair. Has electric hatch. Seat transfer height is low for an SUV: but has a step outside the door which prevents wheelchair from getting too close to seat. May well need transfer bench for easing transfer from wheelchair. More compact than the big-brother GLE: which has more height and depth to trunk: but also much higher seat transfer height.

The trunk is narrow at the wheel well for a rigid chair: but smaller version may be ok with a narrow chair.
