Hi

Can anyone help? I have disabled aunt, with stunted growth and due to change motability car. Key now is the height of seat as transfer from wheelchair is by 'banana board' and if the seat height in car and wheelchair vary her carer struggles to help her transfer.


Could anyone advise the height of rear seat from ground? Trying to work out if lower than Toyota Auris which is a little too high now for her. Would save me a 50 mile each way drive to a dealer to measure it up.

Just measured mine at 63 cm, though i am parked on a slope if that makes any difference.

I'm guessing that it might be a little high, but the sliding doors and no B pillar may be of some help, particularly if the front door is opened to facilitate easier access.
