As a part of a larger plan undertaken by the city of New York, which will phase out all current NYC taxis 2018, we give you the Nissan Cab.

They've got skylights, more leg-room, and seats made of odor-reducing material. There's a whole bunch of other little changes, like flat floors and navigation systems, that make these cabs swell. However, New Yorkers won't bee seeing these on the streets until fall of next year. All improvements aside, they definitely look kind of stupid, like an uglier P.T. Cruiser or something.
