List of Uber Approved Cars in Melbourne, Australia (212 Vehicles)

 

 

Are you at the point where you want to buy a car for Uber, but can’t seem to get the list of approved Uber vehicles? In response to numerous requests for the List of Uber cars (UberX and Uber Black) in Melbourne, Australia, we put together an unofficial master list containing 212 Uber approved vehicles in Melbourne, Australia.

The list below contains the following – Uber Approved Service, Make, and Model of the Vehicle. For some of the data we marked it as N/A – meaning we could not find it, or it does not exist!Assume all cars on this list are at most 10 years old (i.e. 2006)

Note – if a car is approved for Uber Black, it is generally automatically approved to make UberX pickups (if the driver desires). For Uber Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, note the key difference(s) between UberX and Uber Black:

 

Become an Uber Driver

UberX:

  • To be approved for the UberX service your car needs to be approved for UberX, or UberBlack use (see list below)
  • You need to be at least 21 years old
  • You need to have a drivers license
  • You need to have personal insurance on your car

 

UberBlack:

  • To be approved for UberBlack your car needs to be approved for UberBlack (see list below)
  • Your car needs to be black
  • Your need to be a professional chauffeur
  • You need to have a commercial drivers license
  • You need to have commercial insurance on your car

  1. Can I use a Toyota hilux, ford ranger or any other 4×4 that has 4 doors, 2007 above to driver uberx

    Also what additional features can the 4×4 have or not have such as bulbar, air snorkel, additional lights and slide rails

  2. I have a Suzuki alto which I took to be approved as a uber car but was told it does not have three seat belts in the rear so is not eligible. I see that it is on the approved list of cars for use. Can you please let me know if my Suzuki is acceptable as I would really like to drive but cannot afford another car.

    1. Who told you it was not eligible? Shoot an email to “partnersmelbourne@uber.com” for a definitive answer. At the time we compiled this list, it was eligible. Let us know what you are told too.

  3. Thanks, this is very helpful. Do you know if this list is Australia-wide or only pertains to Melbourne? I am in Perth and there is no such published list over here….

    1. Hatchbacks are generally used solemnly for the UberGO service. Toyota Corolla Sedan, 2014 and newer is accepted also Toyota Yaris is acceepted for the UberX service

      Kunle

  4. question – 1. audi a5 coupe ( doses have rear seats ) is ok or have to be a 4 door only ?
    question-2. its a black leather interior can it be used as uber lux ?

    1. Answer 1 Audi a5 Coupe is an accepted Uber vehicle. Answer 2 yes a black interior can be used for UberX

  5. Hi There, I am n interested in getting a 2013 lexus CT200h. This is not on the list however I beleive it is eligible in other regions. Can you please confirm this?

  6. Hi, I got my VIC license and it’s one week old now. But i was driving my Camry 2010 in Victoria from last 3 years and I got my license on the basis of international license 3 years old. Can i still drive UberX because my vic license is not 1 year old.
    Thanks

    1. I know for a fact that Subaru-Exiga, Forester, Imprezz, Liberty, Outback, Tribeca and XV are approved for Uber. I am not sure WRX is. You can Send a message to Uber through your Uber app to get a definitive answer.

      1. How is a three star ANCAP rated vehicle like the Proton S16 approved?

        Had a ride in one of these the other day and was concerned that my safety was clearly not a concern of Uber or the driver.

        Why does Uber not have a minimum Ancap rating for cars used?

        1. Hello Roger,

          Uber have a minimum car requirement for each country. per your question i suggest you make a complain to uber customer support or visit your local uber office to make a complain.

          To Report An Issue

          Select ‘Help’ from your uber app menu and you can choose any of the options under ‘Report an Issue’, or you can go right to your ‘Last Trip’ to report an issue from your most recent trip.

          Uber Customer Service

          Uber generally does not give out phone numbers; we have a blog post below. Look within the table (in the blog post), and search for your city, to find the contact information for your particular city.

  7. I have a 2012 Ford Falcon XR6, I found that the G6E turbo and Fairmont are on the list but the XR6 is not :(. I’m asking if the Falcon XR6 is still eligible.

  8. Hi there, I have Mahindra XUV 500 2016 model 7 seater, But it’s not listed in uber car list? Just want to know that list is upto date or I can’t drive that car with uber,
    Thanks
    Guru

  9. I see a lot of light/ small cars are on your list often being hatchbacks. But you are saying hatchbacks are not generally accepted?? It means sedans only in Barina, Accent,Mirage etc etc are acceptable? Am considering buying small car . Cheers

  10. I’m planning to buy a car and work with Uber, so is it ok if I go for a Hatchback or should I buy a Sedan only?

  11. Hey there!
    I noticed in a few places in the comments section where people were asking “Can I use [this car]?” and it was explained; “No, that car is a hatch. Uber Australia allows 4-door sedans only.”

    In the list of approved vehicles, there are these hatch-only vehicles that have been approved:

    Alfa Giulietta
    Audi A1 (Hatch-only in Aus)
    BMW 1 Series (Hatch-only in Aus)
    Citroen C4 (Hatch-only in Aus)
    Fiat Punto (Hatch-only in Aus)
    Honda Jazz
    Hyundai Getz
    Hyundai i20 (Hatch-only in Aus)
    Hyundai i30 (Hatch or wagon in Aus)
    Mercedes A-Class
    Mercedes B-Class
    Mitsubishi Colt
    Nissan Micra
    Peugeot 307
    Peugeot 308
    Suzuki Alto
    Suzuki Swift
    Volkswagen Golf
    Volvo V40

    And, there are also these sedans that I’ve found to be missing from the list:

    Volvo S60
    Renault Latitude
    Renault Fluence
    Mercedes C-Class
    Opel Insignia

    So, where does Uber Australia actually stand on hatches? What can be used and what cannot? If hatches *are* allowed in the form of those listed above, will we soon be seeing the entire Renault range (Clio, Megane, etc.) approved as well? The Renault Clio R.S. 200 Cup is beautiful! 😀

    There’s also some grammatical issues with some model names:
    Ford “6GE Turbo” is actually a “Falcon G6E Turbo”
    Holden “Celais” is actually a “Calais”
    Subaru “Imprezz” is actually an “Impreza”
    Suzuki “Aerio” is actually a “Liana” in Australia

  12. Hey there! I noticed in a few places in the comments section where people were asking “Can I use [this car]?” and it was explained; “No, that car is a hatch. Uber allows 4-door sedans only.”

    Hyundai Getz
    Hyundai i20 (Hatch-only in Aus)
    Hyundai i30 (Hatch or wagon in Aus)
    Mercedes A-Class
    Mercedes B-Class
    Mitsubishi Colt
    Nissan Micra
    Peugeot 307
    Peugeot 308
    Suzuki Alto
    Suzuki Swift
    Volkswagen Golf
    Volvo V40

    And yet, there are these sedans missing from the list:

    Volvo S60
    Renault Latitude
    Renault Fluence
    Mercedes C-Class
    Opel Insignia

    So, where does Uber Australia actually stand on hatches? What can be used and what cannot? If hatches *are* allowed in the form of those listed above, will we soon be seeing the entire Renault range (Clio, Megane, etc.) approved as well? The Renault Clio R.S. 200 Cup is beautiful! 😀

    Suzuki “Aerio” is actually a “Liana” in Australia

    1. Thank you for the contribution, Kyle. Well, Some Hatchbacks are approved just like the ones you listed above. Hwever, we can only hope for more cars being approved on the Uber Platform. Thank you again.

  13. In Australia, when you are driving in any cars even though you are Uber driver can have Courtesy cars with out paying anything when accident was not your fault as long as your car is insured. It is accordance by the law.

  14. Hello,

    I saw Honda City listed for Sydney but not Melbourne. Can you please clarify if City is an approved car in Melbourne?

    1. Per your question, I think your best bet is to go into your local Uber office and make your issue known.

    I have 2011 Audi A6 silver in colour with black interior, would I be UberX or Black, also what is average expected income in Melbourne with approx. 30hr pw of work?

      Hatchback cars are generally not approved for uber, but some are approved for uberGo. I suggest you visit your local uber office to verify if Honda Jazz 2014 is approved for your city.

  23. Hi, I have my new car 6 months old (2018 Ford Ecosport) and have to go abroad for an year.
    I want to give my car to Uber for rent and get some monthly payments to me.

    Does Uber allow this process or can someone suggest a solution other than selling it !

    I am lost and need advise. thanks.

    1. Hello Pididi,

      Uber is not into the business of managing vehicle for owner, you will have to register the car yourself as an uber partner then uber can assist you in getting a driver for your car. I suggest you visit your local uber office for more information about uber in your city.
