One of the main features that appeals to drivers of the M8 is its spacious driver’s compartment. In itself, this offers many practical benefits including ample storage space and a handy centre console for all your belongings.
The driver’s seat has also been re-designed for maximum safety and comfort, offering multiple adjustment options so you can achieve your ideal positioning. Plus, taxi passengers benefit from a quick release door, sliding windows and air conditioning that make for a pleasant journey in any weather.
The 4-cyclinder Euro 5 CDi diesel engine delivers both power and receptiveness, also making the M8 the ideal economical selection. In fact, not only does the new M8 drive brilliantly but so far many customers have been impressed by how quickly they have noticed a return on their miles per gallon.
Referring to his recent purchase of the M8 Robert Rayner, a taxi driver of 31 years adds: ‘“I’ve been really impressed with the overall specification and the taxi features of the M8 cab. The twin electric side-steps are particularly useful for older passengers and the wheelchair accessible ramp is really easy to use. It just clicks together to make wheelchair work no problem at all – it’s a vast improvement from what I had before.”
