One of the advantages of renting from Sixt is that some of their car classes, and vehicles, will always include a satellite navigation system. If you are unfamiliar with the area in which you will be driving, a GPS unit is a must-have for your journey. The systems offered by Sixt are high-tech and of excellent quality.

Vehicles from Sixt that include a navigation system in their rental are the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which is an automatic vehicle, the Chrysler 300 C, which can seat up to five people and is also a vehicle with an automatic transmission, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class T-Modell, which is a great vehicle to hire if you have a lot of luggage as it is an estate vehicle.
Sixt offers many vehicles which are ideal for four people. The Fiat 500, Renault Twingo and Fiat Panda are examples of these vehicles, however, these do not have much room for luggage, and a slightly larger vehicle may be more suitable for longer road trips.

Other vehicles for hire include the Renault Clio, Citroen C3, Chevrolet Aveo, Fiat Bravo and Renault Megane. Customers can also hire an estate car, such as the Citroen C3 Picasso STW and Renault Megane STW.
