My teaching car is a Vauxhall Meriva 1.8 dtci, which is an MPV (multiple-purpose vehicle), bigger than a hatchback but smaller than a people carrier.
The reason I use this car is that it can accomodate drivers of any size between 5′ and 6’6″.
It has a fully-adjustable driver’s seat, moveable steering wheel, and plenty of head room.
It also has power-steering, air-conditioning, and a sunshine roof for our English summers!
It’s very easy to drive, and has a high driving position, for excellent all-round visibility.
Most importantly, it’s dual-controlled – which means that you are always safe because I can take over at any point.
