Peugeot 5008 Taxi

The award winning Peugeot 5008 joined the Cab Direct family this month and looks sure to be a firm favourite with cabbies across the UK.

Universally praised in its field, the 5008 has everything a hard-working taxi driver is looking for including class leading driver comfort, bumper boot space for luggage, spacious rear seating and money saving economy.

Smooth & Efficient

With impressive fuel consumption of up to 61.4mpg, the 5008 is one of the most cost effective cars on the road today. You’ll be sure to save money on diesel and spend more time on the road earning. In addition the vehicle is responsive and a joy to drive, with WhatCar describing 5008’s 112 PS HDi diesel engine as “silky-smooth”.

Class Leading Comfort

In the current economic climate, cab drivers are spending even more time on the road. 5008 makes this task that bit easier thanks to its elevated seating position for extra comfort. The vehicle also features an ergonomically designed dashboard and steeply angled steering wheel for complete control.

Comfort has always been a major basis for purchasing a new vehicle and the 5008 has received great acclaim. Auto Car says: “From the driver’s chair, the environment is a pleasant and airy one, thanks to a wide cabin, high-set seating position and low window line”. Car Buzz adds that 5008 delivers “impressive leg and head room all-around”.

Bumper Boot Space

There’s plenty of clever storage solutions, perfect for cabbies.  What’s more 5008 is ideal when you have a group fare including luggage. The boot volume of 5008 is generous to say the least and the low rear sill makes loading and unloading as easy as possible.

Industry experts are united in their praise, with WhatCar awarding the 5008 a maximum 5 stars for space and practicality.  There’s even the option of two extra seats in the back – perfect if you’re looking for a family vehicle as well as a working cab.


A handy feature for busy drivers is the electric parking brake with hill assist. When you stop, the parking brake can be activated at the flick of a switch. When released, hill assist will keep the vehicle at a standstill for up to two seconds, making life easier when setting off on a gradient.

The 5008 Access model also comes with air conditioning, trip computer, alloys, leather steering wheel and CD player with MP3 playback, all as standard.

We’re positive you’ll be impressed with the latest member of our select taxi family.
