    Sliding Doors

    Does anyone know of a car (not too big) with sliding doors at the front please?

    If no such thing, then suggestions for sliding doors at the back (again not too big a car) welcome.

    Thanks

    I take it you are on about the car available on the motability scheme. The only cars i can think of has rear sliding doors. Ford B-max and Ford Grand C-max is available with a decent AP. Then there is Mazda 5 with a high AP.

    How small a car are you looking at? Would Vauxhall Meriva with reverse (suicide) doors do?

    I think peugeot 1007 had sliding front door. Don't think it is available on the scheme.

    Doesn't have to be motability - looking at a drive from wheelchair for that so can be independent - but AP's so expensive!

    In the meantime, I could sit in passenger seat with help from a turning aid. This means I am able to get out and about as long as I have a companion who can drive (and operate aid).
