Wow nice! Hyundai i30SW... does it comes with sunroof? [laugh]

 

Actually in Singapore... midsize cars are just nice for taxi use... less costly for the taxi drivers to maintain too which in turn allow them to bring home slightly more home.

taxi pay $5K per year diesel tax, u want??

 

thats the diff lah, our diesel tax only 1.25, so for 1.6 still only 1.9K, but dun think there is much savings unless your mileage 50k per annum

News also say the co die die bidded at $56k to die die secure the COE.

So you see....it's more or less true that taxi co is driving the demand for CAT.A prices!!

Power for the 1.6 diesel powerplant is pretty low ... depending on which engine, power is rated at only around 114bhp assuming the taxis are mated to an automatic gearbox....

Don't think any boyracer feelings will erupt from the cabbies [:p]

Yes, bro. You noticed that $ too.

Meaning the rest of taxi company will very highly follow and bid at that $ for NEXT coming bidding.

So end result is higher COE again.....

Diesel is about Torque not Horsepower........ Diesel runs out of breath at high revs but huge amount of torque at low revs

runs out of breath at high revs??

when my mini which somrtime the sonata taxi driver going very fast, and tail gate me at mid-night, it was very hard to get them off... even i go up to 180km/h or sometime i give up let them pass, and i can say those taxi overtake me over 200km/h!!!! and their pickup is super good from 100 to 180!!!

but i think from 0-100 their taxi is not very good compare to my mini, but they can win me from 100km/h to 180km/h
