Business class sedans are gradually pushing out budget options out of the service sector, and for good reason.
A co-owner of a taxi service and blogger from YouTube channel “His people in a taxi” said why they had decided to expand the taxi fleet with a new Toyota Camry from 2019, rather than the usual tested KIA Optima sedans.
So the Toyota Camry seems an ideal option to “roll” the tariff, which is used by more affluent and representative customers. There is a greater demand for such cars, and therefore the opportunities for permanent orders are higher.
The Camry is also more convenient for driving comfort and landing for a driver who spends 12-14 hours a day on the wheel. I want to work in Toyota: simpler, more convenient – less fatigue and discomfort.
The liquidity and cost of cars Toyota Camry remains higher than the figures for KIA Optima after the same period. So, after “skating” for 3 years, Camry, which was bought for 1.8-1.9 million rubles, can be sold for 1.3-1.4 million, while for the similar “Optima”, it will be possible to earn about 700-800 thousand rubles.
At first glance, the benefits of the Optima seemed obvious: Korean love is “winning” and in value (the price tag starts from 1.4 million rubles against the new Camry price tag of 1.7-1.8). million rubles), and in the cabins, and in the capacity of the trunk, and in the longer periods between the MOT (15 thousand for the "Optima" compared to 10,000 km for the "Camry") ). However, the taxi drivers have stopped – the blogger explained that the Camry Toyota is more profitable than the KIA Optima.
