The Citroën EuroTaxi™ from Cab Direct has proved a big hit amongst economy minded taxi drivers since its launch last year. With full hackney specification and an impressively low price – from just £19,495 on the road – it’s not hard to see why.
Peter Douglas, from Northampton, is full of praise for the EuroTaxi™. He says: “I took delivery of my new EuroTaxi a couple of months ago now and I’ve been really impressed with it. It really offers fantastic value for money as a working taxi.”
Just the Job
Taxi driving is hard work, with long hours behind the wheel. And the EuroTaxi is strongly built to suit the job you do. Not least its driveability, which makes those late, late shifts that wee bit easier to handle. With its first rate suspension and advanced monocoque body shell the EuroTaxi™ provides great stability on all road surfaces. It’s also fitted with ABS and Emergency Breaking Assist providing that much needed peace of mind for cabbies working long hours behind the wheel.
The raised driver position plus large windscreen and side windows create exceptional visibility, particularly useful in busy traffic, whilst allowing plenty of light into the driver’s compartment.
Peter says: “Both the power and the handling in the EuroTaxi are fantastic. It’s a really comfortable drive.”
Another big plus point for Peter is the space provided in the EuroTaxi™. He comments: “Compared with some other hackney taxis on the market the amount of room in the EuroTaxi is phenomenal. The rear compartment is really spacious, meaning six passengers can travel in perfect comfort. I’ve had lots of positive feedback from customers.”
The EuroTaxi™ comes with a choice of two models, the L and the LX. The higher spec taxi of the two, the LX, benefits from the convenience of Cab Direct’s celebrated EasyGlide™ under-floor ramp.
Peter, who opted for the LX model, says: “I chose the higher spec cab purely for the ease of accessibility. The ramp is just fantastic. Lots of other drivers in around the town have commented on how good it is.”
Peter continues: “I was the first EuroTaxi on the ranks in Northampton and other drivers are always amazed by the cab. Economy is at the forefront of everybody’s mind at the minute and the EuroTaxi offers a whole lot of vehicle for the money.”
Both EuroTaxi™ models are available with a choice of Citroën’s 90 or 120hp diesel engines. There’s also a plus model, long wheelbase option for extra luggage space.
Peter concludes: “The EuroTaxi is the perfect hackney taxi for anybody looking for a great car at a great price.”
Cab Direct chairman, Gerry Facenna, is delighted with the popularity of the new EuroTaxi™ range. “At Cab Direct we try to cater for every taste and pocket, while always maintaining high quality standards,” comments Gerry.
He continues: “The EuroTaxi is built to last and provides a reliable workhorse that won’t let you down at a fantastically economical price.”
