    One of the best Taxi Car - Toyota Crown Comfort YXS10

    The Toyota Comfort, released in 1995, was designed for use as a taxicab in Japan.The Crown Comfort is popular among taxicabs in Japan and Hong Kong. It uses a rear-wheel drivetrain. Some versions can be licenced to carry 5 passengers (excluding the driver). The six-seater version uses column gearchange whereas the five-seater version can either have column or floor gearchange. The Japanese model has fender mirrors and an automatic (driver-activated) rear door (also standard in Hong Kong). The Comfort is also used as an instructional vehicle for people learning how to drive.

    Since 2005, Toyota has sold 36,400 Comforts. The car is popular with taxi companies and driving schools in Japan. Currently, it is also sold in Hong Kong, mainly as taxi. In 2010, the car is named by Akio Toyoda, the president of Toyota, winner of the “President’s Prize”, an internal, semi-official award of Toyota. The Company explained: “The car itself is unspectacular but it is very important to Toyota. This is why Morizo chose the car for the first ‘Morizo award,’... the car can be driven over the years by everybody from beginners to experts. And this is the proof that the car is the symbol of Toyota’s quality, durability and reliability”. Morizo is the driver name and blogging alter ego adopted by Mr. Toyoda, a motor sports enthusiast.

    Good writeup ...I have travelled in Crown while in HongKong, almost on a daily basis, and it's comfort is indeed good...nice leg-room and easily accommodate 3 people in the rear. Always used to wonder how the car's rear doors open once it comes to a halt... Never heard of this feature of driver operated rear doors......
