All vehicles from Auto Europa are divided into various car categories, and are booked by car group, not by their specific makes and models. Economy category vehicles from Auto Europa are very popular amongst many renters, as they are generally affordable and fuel-efficient. They are smaller vehicles, with two or four doors, and seat up to four passengers. The Fiat Panda however, only seats up to three passengers. Two door vehicles include the Fiat 500, while examples of four door vehicles are the Peugeot 207, Fiat Grande Punto and VW Polo. While these smaller cars are great for city driving, they may be a bit cramped for families with more luggage to transport.
Compact vehicles are of a similar size to those in the Economy category, and include the Mercedes A Class, which is an automatic vehicle, the Alfa Romeo 147, Alfa Romeo Mito, Renault Megane Wagon and VW Golf Plus. The Golf is a bit larger, seating up to five people, and the Renault Megane may have a bit more room for luggage, as it is a station wagon.
Larger vehicles seating five or more passengers can be hired from the Mid-size, Standard and Full-size categories. Mid-sized vehicles seating five include the Nissan Primera, Fiat Croma, Fiat Sedici, VW Touran, Renault Scenic, Alfa Romeo 159 Wagon and VW Tiguan. The Nissan Primera and VW Tiguan can have an automatic transmission, which is sometimes preferred by customers who are used to driving an automatic vehicle at home. These vehicles also have more luggage space. The Fiat Ducato can be found in the Standard category, and this is a vehicle ideal for groups of travellers, as it can accommodate up to nine passengers. The Mercedes Viano is another larger sized vehicle offered by Auto Europa, and is found in the Premium category. Full-size vehicles include the Mercedes C Class, BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
Premium and Luxury vehicles are most suitable choices for business professionals who require a vehicle that is more elegant than the ordinary rented car, perhaps for a prestigious business function. These types of vehicles are also often hired privately, for formal occasions such as weddings. The Audi A6 automatic, BMW 5 Series and Audi Q5 are example vehicles in the Premium category, while the Mercedes E Class and Mercedes SLK Class Convertible are vehicles in the Luxury category.
