What is the most popular car for Uber and Lyft drivers?
The Guru Take
Toyota Prius seems to be the consensus
Thousands of people become new drivers every month and they all ask the question, "what is the best car to drive for ridesharing?" They look at gas mileage, total cost of ownership, comfort of the ride, etc.
We have heard repeatedly that Toyota Prius is the consistent answer and is the clear winner, and to answer your question, it is also known to be the most popular car, at least in the United States.
Here's what Will Preston from The Rideshareguy had to say:
"Even though I’ve been a fan of hybrid cars for a while, I’ve often wondered if the amount of money you save in gas is eaten up by the extra price you pay for the hybrid. But the math here shows the Toyota Prius seems to be a special animal, starting with the fact that it gets 50 miles per gallon. (I regularly get 44.3 MPG in mine.) It’s also incredibly reliable. It has plenty of room for luggage for airport runs, and its seats and suspension are very comfortable. The Prius has a quiet ride and a solid sound system in the base model. No wonder it’s so popular." (source)
