What Is UberXL?

UberXL Information

source: uber.com

Uber XL is an inexpensive car service that lets you hail an SUV - It's UberX's big brother. So whether you're with a bunch of friends, or simply need a more spacious ride without burning a hole in your pocket, UberXL is the car service for you.

You'll be picked up in an SUV or minivan that can fit at least 6 people - including yourself - after requesting an XL. Launching in May 2014, this was the 1st SUV option. It's nearly half the price of UberSUV (which is the luxury "black car" version).
