    We've put together two pretty detailed guides about each of these services, so let me try to answer these.

    1. UberXL - https://www.ridester.com/uberxl-overview/
    2. UberSUV - https://www.ridester.com/ubersuv-guide/


    UberXL is like UberX, but only with vehicles that can transport up to 6 people. If you need seating for 6, this is a great option without having to call a more expensive service. 

    Examples of UberXL vehicles:

    • Toyota Sienna
    • Honda Pilot
    • Dodge Journey
    • GMC Acadia
    • Toyota Highlander


    These vehicles aren't always sexy, but they'll get you where you need to go. If you're going to a casual bar around town, it'll get the job done. But if you're rolling up to the club with your friends and getting out of a minivan isn't the way you want to start your night, then check out UberSUV.


    On the other hand, UberSUV is one of the most expensive services for passengers, and provides luxury service that's handled by professional, licensed drivers. These vehicles are...

    On the other hand, UberSUV is one of the most expensive services for passengers, and provides luxury service that's handled by professional, licensed drivers. These vehicles are black, and on the high end of the spectrum in terms of price, comfort, and style. 

    Examples of UberSUV vehicles:

    • Cadillac Escalade
    • Audi Q7
    • GMC Yukon XL
    • Lincoln Navigator


    What's great about UberSUV is that you can split ride fares with all your friends. Meaning it's more expensive, but if you all go in on the ride, it's actually quite affordable.


    TLDR: UberXL is cheap, but can still hold 6 passengers. UberSUV is luxury, but more expensive. Still holds 6 passengers.

        Well, that depends on your preference, but UberBLACK are luxury cars that can accommodate 4 passengers, while UberSUV are luxury vehicles that can accommodate up to 6 passengers.

        All the vehicles on either service are nice, but it just depends if you want a car or SUV.

        Hope that helps clarify!

    Uber XL is quit a bit cheaper, honestly, for the price I would just recommend taking the XL. Cars for XL still have to be in decent shape!

    Also, doesn't the Uber SUV need to be BLACK.   Just like the UberBlack.

    Sometimes it can be cheaper to just take 2 separate UberX rides, just a suggestion.

    I can never keep these two separate in my head.  I know one is more expensive with cars like Escalade and the other is like normal suvs like Exlorer.  but honestly, I can never remember.  XL?  SUV?

      Yeah?  UberXL is UberX.  It just has an extra L on it.

      Uber SUV is... like UberBlack SUV.  Uber Black XL, if you will.  OK, I may just have confused myself.

      I don't think it would as one of the requirements for an XL is capacity for 6 passengers. For more information, including an entire list of vehicle makes and models that are allowed for each type of Uber service visit this article here.

      I think if you drive for UberSUV, you can also get UberXL rides. Is this true?

      The Murano?  I believe it depends on whether you have a third-row seating or not.  That's the only way to have enough capacity of six, i.e. enough number of seatbelts for UberXL

      and I can't remember right now whether Muranos came with third-row. Anyone? It may be considered a crossover, so perhaps not.

    Why does Honda Pilot is not considering a luxury car?

      Because it isn't.  If it were an Acura MDX, maybe.  Not sure exactly where the line is (and I know it's a great car), but it isn't at the level of Escalade, Navigator, Lexus, etc.
