The Perfect Taxi – Toyota Avensis

November 5, 2010

With its well equipped and spacious cabin and legendary reliability, the Toyota Avensis makes the ideal taxi for today’s busy driver.  Now with Cab Direct’s amazing price, from just £62.95 weekly with only £250 deposit, the Avensis is an affordable luxury for every driver.

Just the Job

Cabbie Adrian Lane, from Herefordshire, recently took delivery of his new Avensis from Cab Direct.  He opted for the Avensis Tourer, the estate version, and is over the moon with his new cab.  Having been in the taxi industry for ten years, he considers comfort and economy his top priorities – thankfully the Avensis comes up trumps for both.

Toyota’s 2.0 litre D-4D diesel engine offers the latest in performance engineering.  Toyota’s fuel-saving features use low-friction, lightweight components and new ‘Optimal Drive’ engine technology combining optimum power with low fuel consumption and low levels of undesirable emissions.

Adrian says: “I’m well satisfied with all features of the Avensis.  From comfort and driveability to space, size and fuel economy – I have only good things to say about the Avensis”.


Bigger than its predecessor, the new Avensis creates a spacious and comfortable environment for both drivers and passengers alike.  With an extended wheelbase of 2700mm and a massive boot capacity of 509 litres, you can cater for even the most
luggage laden passengers.  Opt for the Avensis Tourer, as Adrian did, and you’ll enjoy even more load space in the back.

Adrian says: “There’s plenty of room in the Avensis – many of my customers have commented on the space and comfort of the vehicle.”

He continues in his praise: “I’d happily recommend the Avensis to anyone – it’s a luxurious vehicle at an affordable price.”

Thumbs Up for Cab Direct

In terms of taxi suppliers, it seems there’s only one winner for Adrian.  He was so impressed with the quality of service he experienced with Cab Direct that since taking delivery of his Avensis, he has already returned to buy a second vehicle.

Cab Direct sales director, Peter Facenna, comments: “For quality, reliability and value it really is hard to see past the Avensis.

“We have an excellent relationship with Toyota which means we can offer an even better deal for licensed taxi drivers.  It’s great to see people like Adrian taking advantage of this superb offer and enjoying the benefits of the Avensis.”

With a wide selection of saloons, estates, MPVs and prestige vehicles to choose from, Cab Direct has a vehicle to suit every taste and pocket.
