  • Maximise Your Earning Power

    In the UK’s hard-working taxi industry you need a vehicle that fits your needs, whatever the nature of your business. The all-new MaxiCab™ combines the performance and reliability for which Ford and Cab Direct are renowned with flexibility. Tailor-made for the taxi trade, it offers a nine-seat MPV with bags of luggage space one minute and then full wheelchair access the next. You have the choice of manual or auto transmission too.

    Economy & Drive

    As a cabbie, maximising your earning potential is top priority. With Ford’s efficient diesel technology at work under the bonnet, MaxiCab promises superb handling and great economy. Returning up to 34.4 miles per gallon on the latest WLTP figures, with Ford’s latest 2.0-litre diesel engine, you’ll be better off at the end of your shift. Add cruise control, Hill Start Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition – which handily displays the speed limit on your instrument cluster –  and your working environment is a relaxed and comfortable place to be.

    *Combined fuel consumption (WLTP figs)


    Comfort Cab

    Comfort levels in the MaxiCab™ are second to none. Excellent visibility is achieved thanks to the raised driving position and adjustable, wide-angle door mirrors. A heated driver’s seat with 10-way adjustment, armrest and lumbar support will help you find your ideal driving position. Whilst an impressive list of standard equipment and ample storage combine to provide an enhanced driving experience. All controls are located within easy reach too and there’s a wide range of optional extras, including in-built sat-nav, to complement the impressive standard spec.


    If you’re looking for maximum people carrying capacity without breaking the bank, MaxiCab™ offers the perfect solution. This spacious MPV allows you to carry up to eight seated passengers. Where it excels though is with the sheer volume of luggage space you are afforded, even with a full passenger load. It comes with a whopping 1,900 litres of boot space, allowing you to cater for all eventualities.




    MaxiCab™ features our new bifold access ramp which is stored in an upright position, flush against the rear panel in the boot so as not to infringe on the luggage space available. Then, when you need it, simply release the latch holding it in place and it will swing around into position, ready to be deployed. From there it folds out, in two parts, to create a low gradient ramp. Depending on the size of the wheelchair, you will only need to fold two of the third-row seats forward, leaving you with room for up to six additional passengers. Extra access options such as a hearing loop, electric side-steps and high-visibility grab handles also allow you to spec your MaxiCab™ exactly to your needs.
