Best Holiday Car Rental 2018 Edition
The holidays are always a hectic time of year, there is so much to do and so many people and places you need to visit. That is why every year we put together a list of the best cars we have in our fleet for making your holidays a little easier and more enjoyable.
2018 was a good year for cars. A lot of great looking and fuel-efficient models came out this year and they are sure to impress when you’re heading out to visit family.
2018 Kia Rio – Packing Light
The Kia Rio is the perfect car for holiday adventures if you are traveling by yourself or with a partner. They are small, sleek little cars but the interior room is a deceptively large. The larger cargo area is 17.4 cubic feet meaning you will have plenty of room in the hatchback for your luggage and plenty of gifts for your loved ones!
At this time of year, saving money anywhere you can is important. That is what makes the Rio so special, with a combined fuel efficiency of 32 MPG you can spend less time at the gas station and more time with loved ones!
The Kia Rio sits fairly low to the ground, but Kia has done a fantastic job making you feel like you are really connected to the road. You will realize right away that the steering is so responsive and the breaks are so tight you will feel totally in control the entire time you are driving, even as another Canadian winter approaches.
2018 Ford F150- The Adventurers
Growing up I had a friend who would go skiing with his family on Christmas afternoon. Every year we would see them drive by our house with the whole family’s gear strapped to the roof of their station wagon. Those days are over now but I am sure they could have benefited from renting a pickup truck from Advantage.
The 2018 Ford F150s are more than just a pickup truck, the interior is so roomy it is essentially a rolling cabin. The rear passenger seats offer just as much legroom as the front, eliminating the need to call shotgun. The cargo area is an impressive 5-foot box, so there is plenty of room for all of your family’s gear without making the truck so long it is hard to maneuver.
Driving the F150 will have you feeling like you own the road. The truck sits so high and the seats are so comfortable you will feel like royalty looking down at the other commuters. As an added bonus the truck has Four Wheel Drive so you and your family can feel safe driving in nasty weather.
2018 Chrysler 200c – Family Fun
The Chrysler 200C one of those cars that you look at and can’t believe it is a Chrysler. Just getting a quick glance at the car and it can easily be mistaken for a luxury car. Chrysler has always ridden the line between luxury and consumer class of vehicles pretty well, with a few obvious exceptions.
The 200C is a great vehicle to rent for traveling in Toronto, it isn’t so big that it is hard to drive around the city but it is big enough to fit your whole family and a few days luggage. The number one reason someone might want to rent a 200C is that of the comfort factor, and not just the comfort of the front passengers either. Chrysler put a lot of care into designing this car with families in mind, knowing their main market for the car would be peoples in their 30’s and 40’s with kids to drive around and people to impress.
Driving the car does feel like you are floating down the road on a cloud. It handles in every way like a luxury vehicle with smooth braking and handling but the traction control and Anti Lock Brakes will always have you feeling like you are in control.
This holiday season, take the stress out of your road trips with Advantage Car and Truck Rentals!
