TX1/2/4 Tyre Pressure

Rear - 40psi

Front - 35psi (40psi commanly used and recommended)

The TX4 brings a new VM Motori diesel engine meeting the Euro IV emission standard which means a much improved environmental performance. ABS brakes provide increased safety, while the passengers benefit from reduced noise levels.

There are a number of other refinements, such as improved ventilation (with the option of air conditioning), improved intercom system and an interior redesign to give a lighter, brighter ambience.

A major evolution of the TX series, the TXII introduced a number of major improvements. The engine changed to a Ford 2.5 litre unit giving better performance and the suspension was given a major redesign.

At the rear, coil springs were used for the first time on a London taxi. Combined with a new front anti-roll bar this gave passengers a much smoother ride with less roll through corners.
