The ultimate hackney taxi, Ford ProCab™, continues to reign as a best-seller among the taxi trade. We caught up with Cab Direct customer, Stephen Horvath, to hear how he’s getting on with his new taxi partner.
Standing proud next to his ProCab™, which looks fantastic in white, he explains why it’s the taxi for him.
Safe & Spacious
Ford ProCab™ exceeds expectations with its spacious six-seat rear compartment and ample 1,180 litre boot – promising passengers with a plenteous supply of luggage and a comfortable journey.
Stephen comments: “The ProCab™ has served me well. My customers absolutely love sitting in the spacious seating area with plenty of room for their luggage.”
Working the ranks of Lytham St Anne’s in Lancashire, Stephen has the safety of his passengers’ front-of-mind. He said: “Being safe at work and placing all of my passengers in capable hands is my top priority.”
Covering many safety elements, ProCab™ ensures a robust journey. The latest safety technology features include Hill Start Assist, Electronic Stability Control, Side Wind Stabilisation and Roll Stability Control. Receiving a five-star rating from Euro NCAP, you’ll be in safe hands with this taxi.
Stephen adds: “The safety element of ProCab™ was the ultimate decision maker when it came to buying my new cab. It really ticked all the boxes.”
Driver & Passenger Comfort
ProCab™ is technology driven with the modern-day driver in mind. With an even longer list of features following its refresh, including an 8” colour touchscreen, DAB radio and USB and AUX ports aplenty. The in-built satellite navigation system to ensure a reliable route each time.
Add illuminated, twin electric side-steps, which automatically deploy for easy passenger entry and exit, and the EasyTalk™ two-way intercom, which provides clear communication between driver and passenger, and everyone’s happy.
The Lancashire cabbie regularly receives comments from his passengers on their ProCab™ experience. Stephen said: “I get positive feedback from my customers all the time. They love the side-steps for easy access and the kids enjoy the comfy seats.”
Smooth, Efficient & Reliable
Powered by Ford’s 2.0 litre, 130 PS engine, all-new ProCab™ is now 13% more efficient than its predecessor, returning an impressive 44.8mpg on the combined cycle (manual).
Opt for the automatic ProCab™, just like Stephen did, and you’ll benefit from Ford’s six-speed SelectShift gearbox, allowing you to switch between full and semi-automatic driving modes.
Stephen said: “I decided to opt for automatic to enjoy the smooth and comfortable driving experience. It’s very easy to use.”

Stephen praises Cab Direct’s service and even caught our eye as he regularly champions the brand on our Facebook page.
He said: “The guys at Cab Direct are always very friendly and helpful. I actively engage on the Facebook page and recommend ProCab™ to other drivers as a top-quality taxi.”
