Do you need help with choosing the best car to use for your Uber business? Continue reading this article to find the best Uber cars in Ghana.

The introduction of Uber, Uber X and Uber Select into the market has helped many Ghanaians (myself included). Compared to the traditional commercial vehicles where you had to wait for the bus to get full before finally setting off.

Alternatively, you could decide to pick a taxi if you need to go somewhere urgent. But with that one also the price was very expensive; mostly using the fact that they are picking only you instead of the normal four (4) as an excuse.

Uber has helped not only the passengers but the drivers and vehicle owners as well. Most investors have now bought more cars for the Uber business and are now earning from different sources each day, week, or month.

Nevertheless, the car you use for your Uber affects your income in diverse ways. Therefore, we are going to recommend to you some of the best Uber cars in Ghana.

The Hyundai Getz’s production began in South Korea in the early 2000’s and was produced from that time until 2011 when Hyundai ceased its production. The engine ranges between 1.1 and 1.6 litres petrol and 1.5 litre diesel, making it fuel-efficient.

It has both 5 – speed manual and 4 – speed automatic transmission with a manual gearbox. The available seats is 5 in total including the driver.

In terms of comfort, Hyundai Getz has more headroom and legroom making driving comfortable with a clear instrumentation.

This car is quite cheap and has a good balance of performance, making it worth using for an Uber.

Kia Picanto

This is one of the (if not the) most popular used Uber cars in Ghana. Now, the question you need to ask yourself is why it is used by many people?

Kia Picanto has engine specifications: 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 – litre petrol engines and; 1.1 – lt diesel and 1.0 petrol/gas engine.
