Tripod Mobility has converted the Peugeot Partner and the Citroën Berlingo to give wheelchair users direct access to the front row. In this compact car, most wheelchairs can easily reach the driver’s and co-driver’s spot. The front even offers room for two wheelchairs next to each other.

Despite its compact size, the UpFront offers equal room for the wheelchair(s) as a much larger van or minivan. The UpFront also offers:

  • Easy to drive in cities
  • Fewer fuel consumption
  • Substantially lower base price than the larger alternatives

The interior space is maximized by lowering the floor as much as possible. Nonetheless the ground clearance is not affected, so speed bumps are not a problem. Via the ramp and spacious rear entrance the lowered floor gives most wheelchairs unobstructed access all the way up to the dashboard.

The UpFront can accommodate virtually every wheelchair. The set up on the front row allows for two wheelchairs, two regular car seats, or one of each.

The lowered floor extends from the tailgate all the way to under the dashboard. The UpFront doesn’t require the use of a lift, because the lowered floor optimizes the accessibility. Optionally the UpFront can be equipped with the NIVO system, which reduces the inclination angle by lowering the rear of the car to the pavement.

The original front seats are mounted on a wheeled frame, for improved removal and re-installation.
