VW Passat or Ford Mondeo for taxi?

New Volkswagen Passat 1.6-litre diesel or new Ford Mondeo 1.6-litre diesel, cannot decide which is better for used as a taxi in Dublin.

Hi Paul,

These cars are really very similar and it can be difficult to seperate them when you compare them in almost every category. You didn't mention the Skoda Octavia or Superb here which is surprising since they are rated so highly by the taxi industry and they are also ultra reliable. The Passat hasn't always been that reliable while there appear to be fewer problems with the Mondeo. Having said that, both engines are really very good though and will be super frugal.

To be honest, I would probably still go with the Passat as it looks and feels a little more upmarket and that would be good in your line of work.
