One of the requirements from Uber for a driver who wants to join its business is he should have a vehicle of 2005 production year or later. In our article today, Naijauto.com would like to recommend models to take if you’ve decided to embark on an Uber business.
The Toyota Avensis offers many powertrain options, but you should stick with the 1.8L unit whose 27 mpg best fits an Uber business.
It is undoubtedly strong and reliable. It is also slightly bigger than the Corolla with more premium feel.

The Honda City can be considered an alternative to the Yaris when it comes to performance. Equipped with a 1.5L 4-cylinder powertrain, the Honda City drinks only a gallon to get a driving range of 32 miles. Another option for the engine is the 1.3L unit if you prefer having. The fifth-gen Honda City ( 2008 - 2013 model years) is good enough for an Uber affair.
