City Car Rental
City driving is a fun way to get out and about and explore all corners of the city. With a wide range of vehicles suitable for city driving to choose from, including small city cars that have the benefit of being easy to manoeuvre and park, as well as having lower fuel costs, and premium small cars for that added luxury and style, we will help you to find the ideal city car rental for you vacation or business trip.
Small City Cars
Small cars are ideal in Raleigh. Both comfortable and easy to drive, a supermini offers day-to-day practicality, its compact size makes it easy to park and it is ideal for nipping in and out of traffic. One of the major attractions of a city car is its fuel-efficiency, and the low running costs ensure that you save money. Choose a smart Toyota Aygo whose reduced size and weight makes it lighter and more economical to drive, or a Peugeot 107 for a stylish little city car with a fantastic fuel consumption. The Hyundai i10 is an excellent small car with light steering and good visibility that makes it easy to park, whilst the Ford Fiesta hatchback is a classic small car that combines style, efficiency and practicality. Some parts of the city are easier to explore on foot, but your rental a car will be very useful for trips out of town, or as a starting point for a tour of the rest of the country with our one-way rental services.
Luxury Small Cars
For a premium small car, an Audi A1 is a smart supermini that looks great driving around town, as does the luxurious BMW1 series, a rear drive subcompact city car with a strong performance and economical on the road. For an affordable open-top driving experience in Raleigh, the stylish Peugeot 206 Cabriolet is a handsome convertible supermini.
Manual City Cars or Automatic City Cars
The constant stopping and starting can be tiring for drivers operating a manual car and many city drivers opt for an automatic transmission. Choose an automatic 3 door Chevrolet Aveo, a Ford Focus Automatic hatchback or a 5 door Hyundai Getz for a reliable small car. If you prefer the feeling of control that a manual transmission gives you, a manual Chevrolet Astra, a compact manual 3 door Kia Picanto or a stylish manual Peugeot 107 are excellent rental choices.
Larger Cars for City Driving
For a larger city car, choose a practical yet cheap to run mid-size family car such as the Skoda Octavia or the Ford Fusion tdi. For travelling with larger groups of 7 or more passengers, a 7 or 8 seater MPV such as the Audi Q7 or the Ford Galaxy tdi is a great way to get around, whilst a flexible 7 seater Toyota Verso 5+2 makes an ideal large family car. For 8 passengers, a Mercedes Viano 8 Seater is an excellent minivan that provides safety and comfort, as well as plenty of style.
