    Default Best Car for Taxi?

    I live in Ireland and I have a budget of around 7000 Euros.
    We want to buy a car that is economical to lease as a taxi and to be used personally at the odd times.
    Engine can be upto 2.2 Diesel or 1.8 petrol.
    Some cars that I've picked:

    Skoda Superb: 1.9 TDI 130HP>
    Best Car for Taxi? - 705a car skoda superb 1

    Skoda Octavia : 1.9 TDI 130 HP and quite smaller than Superb.

    Best Car for Taxi? - 24Skoda Octavia

    VW Passat: 2.0 TDI 140HP

    Best Car for Taxi? - lbrvwsaloon1000501 lg

    Ford Galaxy/Seat Alhambra/VW Sharan : 1.9TDI 130HP and it's a 7 seater.

    Best Car for Taxi? - FORD20GALAXY202320Zetec205dr20MPV20LPG20DUAL20FUEL

    Best Car for Taxi? - SEAT Alhambra 1 9 TDI  2000

    Best Car for Taxi? - 08dcf8bb72e79af3c51f6989e001 grande

    And my last option:
    Honda Accord: 2.2 CTDI 138 HP

    Best Car for Taxi? - 1389903672011121935272 1

    More suggestions are welcome!

    And i had confusion between Liana and Xli before opening this post!

    Renting out the kind ov cars depends on your clients. Executives would want a sedan but for family vacations, a van would suit the most. You need to see your target/potential clients.

    Potential clients, that would be one of many many people here with a taxi permit looking to earn a bit of extra cash. & 7 seaters, they can earn quite a lot at Night Clubs and Pubs and Sedans are usually just everywhere.

    If sedans are common, go for the seven seaters. Vot's the confusion?

    People here prefer Diesel, they can't stand the fact that they will be running a big Petrol engine looking for passengers when the Petrol is RS 160 per litre.
