What's the best vehicle for use as a taxi?

I am looking to set up as a private hire driver but have very little knowledge when it comes to cars. Any recommendation please and the reasons why?

Assuming you'll regularly drive in urban areas, a hybrid like a Toyota Prius would be a good option. The Prius is very popular with private hire drivers because of its low running costs, practicality and reputation for reliability. Also consider the excellent new Toyota Corolla or the Hyundai Ioniq.
