With stylish good looks, masses of space and an impressively low price tag, the recently launched Peugeot Premier™ from Cab Direct is proving a big hit amongst cabbies across the UK – particularly those with economy front of mind.
One such driver is Sher Afghan, from Crawley, West Sussex. He explains: “I’ve been a taxi driver for ten years now and had been driving a Toyota Avensis cab. However, when I got my hackney license I needed an affordable wheelchair access taxi and the Premier™ fit the bill perfectly.”
As the lowest priced wheelchair accessible taxi, the Peugeot Premier™ offers outstanding value for money. With superb levels of comfort and masses of space, the Premier™ packs a huge punch.
Fuel consumption is first-rate too thanks to Peugeot’s highly economical HDi diesel engine, which offers excellent value for money, making the Premier one of the most cost effective cabs on the market today. Sher comments: “I absolutely love my new cab. It’s better for fuel economy than any other vehicle I’ve driven.”
Where the Peugeot Premier™ really excels is in its versatility. It makes superb use of space with numerous handy storage areas. Luggage carrying is second to none thanks to Premier’s unique new FlexiFold™ ramp, which folds completely flat to the floor when not in use, allowing you to make full use of the large boot area.
Cab Direct’s latest wheelchair taxi can accommodate wheelchair passenger, driver and up to two seated passengers or driver plus four seated passengers and baggage. This gives the Premier™ great flexibility to cater for every fare. It’s this versatility that has assured the Premier’s success amongst today’s hard working taxi trade.
Sher says: “The Premier™ has plenty of room for luggage – the boot space is huge. The wheelchair access ramp is fantastic too – I’ve used it quite a few times so far and it makes the job so much easier. It’s so quick and convenient. It’s ideal for me and for my passengers.”
Comfort and convenience are high on the list of priorities for the modern day driver – thankfully the Peugeot Premier™ has both in abundance. With two models to choose from, you can create your perfect working environment. Standard features such as sliding side doors, a height adjustable driver’s seat with armrest, radio/ MP3 compatible CD player with remote controls and electric front windows make for a relaxing driving experience every fare. Opt for the top spec SE model and you’ll also benefit from air conditioning, not to mention a taxi sign, meter and protective floor mats.
Sher, it seems, couldn’t be happier with his new cab and has already recommended it to other drivers in his area. He explains: “I’ve spoken to various other taxi drivers since taking delivery of my new cab and they’ve all said they’ll definitely be looking into getting a Peugeot Premier™ from Cab Direct when they next change their cab.”
Sher continues: “I can’t fault my new taxi, or the service I received from Cab Direct. I’ve been impressed from start to finish.”
