Avensis Taxi Sales hit Record High

Toyota Avensis from Cab Direct


Cab Direct have revealed that sales of the benchmark Toyota Avensis reached record levels in 2008. 

Avensis taxi sales increased by a bumper 76% over the previous year.

The figures include a wide range of models including the TR, T Spirit and range-topping T 180.  Unsurprisingly the best seller is the ever-reliable, not to mention economical, Avensis T2.

Best Ever Value

And the great news for the taxi operators is that - based on this success - Toyota and Cab Direct have now announced their best-ever deal on the T2, with an amazing, taxi trade-only price of just £9,995 plus VAT. 

For a supposedly ‘entry-level’ product the specification level on the T2 Avensis is magnificent.  From the responsive 126 bhp D-4D diesel power plant to the smooth, 6-speed gearbox there’s no compromise about this superb taxi workhorse.  Little wonder this model of reliability has proved such a long-lasting favourite with cabbies worldwide.

All equipment systems on the latest Avensis have been further enhanced to give you an instant upgrade.  Look out for colour-keyed bumpers, door handles and wing mirrors with eye-catching indicator lights.

The large boot, combined with a 60-40 folding rear seats, makes for optimum flexibility - essential as a taxi when it comes to loading customer’s baggage.  

Inside, smart but hard-wearing grey fabric trim adds to the quality feel.  And with plenty of after-dark shifts ahead of you, Toyota’s superb combi-meter ensures instrumentation is easy to see, especially at night.


For the summer months the reliable air conditioning unit will be a godsend.  You’ll also enjoy the superb sound quality of the 8-speaker CD/radio system. Steering-wheel mounted audio-controls, plus auto-sound leveler to automatically adjust volume level in keeping with your engine speed, add to the feeling that Toyota have thought of everything to make your life as a cabbie easier.

Commenting on the new Avensis T2 taxi deal Toyota’s Tony Miller said: “The Avensis has built a well-deserved reputation for combining quality and durability so it comes as no surprise that the car is proving so popular with the hard-working taxi trade. 

“Cab Direct are great partners to work with and we know they’re committed to looking after their customers so I can only see this relationship with the taxi industry continuing to grow.”
