Even if you're a veteran driver, it's important to know UberSELECT category before jumping in to start driving with it. Here's a brief explanation of what it is, and a list of top UberSELECT cars you can choose from to start driving your riders with some style.
Understanding the UberSELECT cars
One of the top Uber categories, UberSELECT is different. Very different.
What the company wants to achieve with SELECT is to add a superb, stylish shuttling service in its features. The $70 billion dollar company wants to make its passengers feel like they are royalties, celebrities, or some kind of special people with UberSELECT cars. However, you got to pay more to drive in one of these.
Part of the core features of UberSELECT cars is lavishness. The cars are super comfortable and luxurious. With SELECT riders are transported in sexy cars with clean interiors and sophisticated infotainment systems, getting them to their destinations in style.
The company, unlike other Uber cars, sets high standards for UbrSELECT requirements. For example, in one of its blog posts, the company states that its SELECT cars have to fulfill the following requirements:
- Must be 2014 or newer
- Leather or vinyl interior (with no iota of tears whatsoever)
- Working windows and air conditioning
- Seat at least 4 passengers including the driver
- No salvaged vehicles
These are just some of the requirements; there are some more on the company blog. But you get the idea, right? Good.

The Buick comes with some relaxed cabin, has refined style, and unmatched interior designs. However, if you want to upgrade to trim level, for example, and add leather upholstery features, you'll have to spend more money to make that happen.
Aside from this, the car is gorgeous and luxurious to ride in with a smiling face. Not only that the LaCrosse's front seats are nicely cushioned, its head and legroom feature will make your rider feel special. There are legrooms almost everywhere: in the back seat and in the rear seat. Celebrity style ride…that's what Buick offers.
