It is also the favorite mode of transport for the city’s inhabitants and so traffic and parking are definitely factors to consider when choosing your vehicle category. Read on to find out some of the best car types for different kinds of vacations and mobility needs.
Best Car For Parking
Generally, it is easier to find spots and park in one of our compact cars. They are great in urban environments thanks to their compact designs; you are more likely to fit into a spot, especially in parking garages that often have spots only for compact models. Lighter and smaller, compact cars are also more economical which is useful when navigating in a metropolis the size of Los Angeles. Nevertheless, at SIXT rent a car, many of our larger SUVs and sedans do have parking assistance systems if you’re in need of more space.
Due to the competition for street parking in Los Angeles, it is good to check out some parking options near your destination before you travel. Often you can book a parking spot in a garage in advance online, guaranteeing you a space and saving you the stress of driving around looking for a place to park.
Best Car For A Short Weekend Break
If you are taking a weekend trip to Los Angeles, we highly recommend a sporty convertible. If you are visiting for only a weekend, chances are you won’t need a huge amount of trunk space. It’s a great city to drive around in with the top down, taking in the sights and letting the wind cool you off. SIXT’s convertibles are also great for maneuvering through urban environments, being both small and incredibly stylish.
Best Car For A Family
If you are taking a vacation in Los Angeles with the whole family, it is probably better to prioritize space and comfort over parking. Our mid-size and full-size SUVs and minivans hold up to 7 passengers and our sedans have plenty of room for 4 passengers plus luggage. If you are using parking lots both of the vehicle types will have no problem fitting into a spot and you will all benefit from the generous amount of legroom and excellent features of these vehicle types. Los Angeles also has great outdoor activities, and whether you are into beach days, camping or hiking, a larger vehicle means you can bring along all of the necessary equipment.
