MINIs on the Motability Scheme

Dick Lovett MINI is proud to work in partnership with Motability, the national UK charity which helps people living with disabilities and war pensioners to exchange part or all of their Government-paid mobility allowance to cover the cost of leasing a new car.

Carers who help a disabled person who receives higher rate mobility allowance but who does not drive or is too young to drive can also join the scheme either as a named driver or as the person’s appointee or nominee.

And what better way to stay mobile than in a stylish, fun and cheap-to-run MINI?

Discovering Your Own MINI

Dick Lovett MINI has some fantastic Motability offers on MINI cars and has specially trained staff on hand at each of their centres in Bristol, Bath, Swindon and Hungerford to help get you up and running.

There’s also designated disabled parking outside each of the centres, lots of models to take for a test drive and the option to adapt vehicles to meet your specific needs.

Some of the MINI Countryman, 3 and 5-door hatches are currently available with a £0 advance payment, while the popular MINI Clubman could be yours for an advanced payment of just £249.

Which one you choose is very much down to your own individual needs.

Variety And Reliability At Dick Lovett MINI

The MINI Countryman has more of an SUV feel to it than the Clubman and 3 and 5-door Hatches, so the higher ride will make it easier for some to get in and out of the car. There’s also a large boot and lots of legroom, while the back seat slides and reclines for both comfort and additional storage space.

All MINIs come with a range of engines and trim options - those who need extra door space to access a vehicle will favour the 3-door Hatch. The MINI Cooper D 3-door Hatch is available with an advance payment of just £499.

Maybe you prefer an automatic gearbox and a petrol engine? You could be driving away in the MINI Cooper 5-door Hatch Auto for an advance payment of £249.

If you need four full-sized doors, coupled with great fuel economy and fantastic performance then there’s the MINI Clubman. The Clubman also has quirky swing-out cargo doors rather than a conventional boot which could suit those who struggle with a larger boot lid.
