Hyundai Motability at Marshall Hyundai Cambridge

Marshall Hyundai proudly offers cars through the Motability scheme to help customers with mobility difficulties drive independently.

There are a number of cars you can choose from in the Hyundai range. The choice starts from the smaller city cars and hatchbacks, such as the i10 and i30, through to SUVs and crossovers like the Santa Fe and Tucson. You can also opt for the innovative IONIQ which makes use of eco-friendly electric technology to power the car. Thanks to our exclusive offers, often including low to zero advance payment, you may be able to drive away in a more luxurious model.

Through the scheme, you can drive a brand-new Hyundai every three years with a 60,000-mile allowance. This generous allowance covers the majority of drivers’ everyday journeys.

You simply pay for the monthly instalments through your mobility allowance. If the car you choose is more luxurious, you may have to pay a bit more, either in the deposit or monthly payments.

These instalments include all road tax, servicing and maintenance costs, including windscreen and tyre replacements. Accident, breakdown and insurance cover is also built in, with up to two named drivers, making the process of driving a Hyundai as stress-free as possible.

We’ll take care of the whole process for you and organise the adaptations, most of which are free of charge. Whether you need more stowage room, extra help getting behind the wheel or devices placed near your hands to control the car, we can advise you on the most appropriate alterations.

You are welcome to come along to the showroom to discover the Hyundai cars on offer and speak to one of the team about getting a car through the scheme. Alternatively, call us or fill in an online enquiry form if you have any questions.

Happiness is more than just a smile. It’s enjoying freedom in a car that takes care of your needs. That’s why our Motability cars offer comfort, accessibility, fuel efficiency and spacious interiors as standard.

Placing an Order at Marshall Hyundai

What to bring to your Marshall Appointment

You will need to bring the following items with you when placing your order:

  • Certificate of entitlement for your award from either the DWP or Veterans UK (the award letter stating which allowance you have been awarded and the duration)
  • Proof of address (e.g. recent utility bill or bank statement)

Taking a test drive at Marshall

Once you’ve worked out what type of car you want and have looked at the available options, it’s very important that you take a few different cars out for a test drive.

Test drive tips for cars

  • Test drive more than one vehicle
  • Involve the people that you travel with. If you wish to nominate a driver, they should come with you and test drive the car too
  • Try out the vehicle where you will use it
  • Take your luggage, equipment or mobility aids with you
  • Practise loading and unloading
  • Try parking and reversing
  • Drive on different types of road and try different manoeuvres such as reverse parking to ensure that the car’s performance is what you expect and that you can see from all angles
  • Check that you are comfortable doing a hill start in the car
  • Consider fuel costs based on the mpg of the car


Vehicle measurements

If you have specific access or stowage requirements from a car, the following measurements can help you narrow down your choice of cars.

Getting in and out

Measurements such as door opening angle, door width, door sill height to ground, and door sill height to the floor of the car can help you work out how easily you will be able to get in the vehicle.

Travelling in the vehicle

Measurements such as seated headroom can help you find a car that has the right amount of space when travelling in the vehicle. If you need a high seat or will be transferring from a wheelchair, you may find the seat height measurement useful.


If you need to carry mobility aids or equipment, it’s vital to check that they will fit. The length of the boot with the back seats up will help you work this out.

Getting in and out - door opening angle​

The door opening angle takes into account things like door pockets that may reduce the space you have to get in and out. This measurement represents the minimum space you would have.

Getting in and out - door width

This refers to the width of the door from the back of the seat to the front door pillar, this will help you calculate the space to get in and out of the vehicle.

Getting in and out - door sill height to ground​

Measured from the top of the sill to the ground (this will differ if you are parked by a kerb) and will help you work out the distance you need to step over to get into the car.

Getting in and out - door sill height to floor of car​

This is the distance between the top of the sill of the car to the floor inside the car, this will help you calculate the distance you need to step over to get into the car.

Travelling in the vehicle - seated headroom​

This measurement is the distance from the centre of the seat to the inside roof of the car.

Travelling in the vehicle - seat height​

Measured from the highest part of the driver’s seat, this is the vertical distance to the ground. The measurement will differ if parked against a kerb.

Stowage - car boot length​

This is the length of the boot floor at its longest point from the back to the front allowing you to work out if the boot is large enough for any equipment you travel with.

  • The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP) or
  • The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or
  • The Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

... you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.

Allowances used on the Scheme

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following disability benefits:

Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)

This allowance is provided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and can be used to cover the cost of a Motability lease agreement.

To lease a car through Motability, you must have at least 12 months’ award length of the HRMC remaining.

War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

This allowance is provided by Veterans UK and can be used to cover the cost of a Motability lease agreement. 

Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)

As part of its welfare reform programme, the Government has started to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. The Motability Scheme will work with PIP in the same way as is it does with DLA.

Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

A new allowance called Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) was introduced as part of the Welfare Reform Act 2012. Those who receive this allowance will be eligible to join the Motability Scheme. For more information, visit Veterans UK website.

The Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through Motability.
