Differentiating Between UberX, UberXL, UberSelect, and UberBlack Cars

uberx vs uberxlUber has changed the way we commute; it’ll be very hard to find some well developed places that don’t have the Uber ridesharing services. You may be someone who uses Uber regularly, if not on a daily basis. But you may have no idea as of what’s the difference between the UberX, the UberXL, the UberSelect, and the UberBlack cars.

If that’s so, then you’ve come to the very right place to learn about their differences. This post is going to break each one of them down to you so that you can have a very good understanding of them.

UberX: This car has space for four passengers. It’s the cheapest ride service among all of these on this post here provided by Uber. Since it’s the most economically friendly one, that makes it the most popular ride you’ll find from all the Uber ridesharing services.

An Uber X driver would most likely found to be driving a Honda, Toyota, Nissan, or Mitsubishi sedan 4-door car. The reason being is because these cars are also somewhat fuel efficient, which helps Uber drivers with the fuel costs.

UberXL: Like the name states, it’s an XL car that can hold up to six passengers. Since UberXL is larger it does cost more to ping one. The good thing for riders is that they can choose to split their fares with their friends, as a result it’ll be a cheaper ride to them.

As for UberXL drivers, they can make more money per ride if their car isn’t burning too much fuel. But since more money is being charged for this service drivers are also getting paid more.

UberBlack or Black Car:  Is the luxury ride of Uber. When you ping for an UberBlack you should expect a very nice looking black car to come pick you up. Since it’s a luxury service be ready to pay more than an UberXL. However the service is worth the cost, you won’t regret anything.

Because it’s a luxury service drivers are required to be registered commercially as well as having the required insurance to be able to provide such service. As an Uber driver you can make a lot of money from driving with Uber in a Black Car. Not only it’s a service that’s well paid, there’s a greater chance of receiving tips from UberBlack riders.

UberSelect: With this Uber service you’ll be picked up by a luxury car, a sedan one. Most drivers who provide this service usually drive either a BMW or a Mercedes. The comfort is exceptional, although they can seat up to four riders they’re usually very spacious. You can’t ask for a better ride than this, but keep in mind that the cost will also be higher as compare to the more cheaper options.

UberPool: This list would be incomplete if I don’t include UberPool in it. This Uber service allows riders to carpool with others as a way to enable them to save. You’re not only saving when you use UberPool, you’re also helping mother earth by decreasing the amount of pollutants being released by cars.

UberPool has you ride with other people you don’t know, if you don’t want to share your ride with others, then this service may not be the right one for you. Nevertheless, many Uber riders enjoy this service because it gives them the chance to meet new people.

With that being said, if you’re someone who doesn’t have time to socialize due to your extremely heavy schedule, you might want to give UberPool a try and see how it is. You never know, you might like it and start making some new friends.


When it comes to Uber there’s more than just the regular ride which everyone knows. There are UberX, UberXL, UberSelect, UberBlack, and also UberPool. Each one of them is different from their cost to the service being provided.

However, each one of them would ensure that you get even more than what you’re paying for which is also a goal of Uber.

I hope this post was helpful to you, and I’m hoping it makes these comparisons clear enough for you so that you know what you’re getting when you pick any one of these services.
