A lot of taxi's in the past were falcons due to cost. a falcon vs commodore is about the same in running costs give or take. rego is about the same give or take. price difference is in the cost of the car, parts, and second hand parts/motors from wreckers. why pay close to $40k for a base commodore when you could get the base falcon for low $30's?This is true, Holden pursued a smaller, less roomy car due to pressure on fuel saving costs and power to weight configuration,
thus leaving the door open for the next best taxi fleet vehicle with its superior passenger room in the Falcon.
