Vehicles in the Economy category at Alamo are quite a popular choice amongst many renters, as they are fuel-efficient and come with affordable rental prices. They are smaller vehicles, ideal for single drivers, couples or even a family with small children; however, they don’t have much room for luggage. Families with more luggage may find a larger vehicle more suitable. Economy vehicles are also very good for city driving or shorter distance travels. Example vehicles in this category are the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. The Ford Fiesta is a bit more fancy, with air conditioning and ABS brakes. Both vehicles have a manual transmission.
Alamo offers the Alfa 147 JTD M-Jet Progression 1.6 as an example vehicle in the Compact category, and this vehicle is of a similar size to those in the Economy category, although is considered to be a bit larger. There is also the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 in the Compact Wagon category, which has space for four luggage items - two large and two small. Wagon type vehicles are a great choice if you have lots of luggage, and from Alamo, there are Midsize Wagons, such as the Fiat Croma Dynamic, and Fullsize Wagons, such as the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2. This station wagon has an automatic transmission and space for six luggage items and five passengers.
Families and business renters may enjoy the slightly larger vehicles in the categories of Midsize, Midsize Specialty and Fullsize. These vehicles all seat up to five passengers, and have reasonable interior space, air bags, air conditioning and space for four luggage items. Fullsize vehicles also have an automatic transmission, which many people find to be very convenient. The VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9 is found in the Midsize car range, the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 is available as a Midsize Specialty vehicles, while the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 is a Fullsize vehicle.
Passengers arriving at Turin Airport who need a vehicle with even more interior space will find their ideal vehicles in the Minivan and Van categories. Minivans can be incredibly useful, and are an extremely popular type of vehicle to hire for various purposes. They seat up to seven people, but families whom simply need extra space within their vehicles for the children and luggage sometimes hire them. Others may hire a minivan due to awkward luggage items that need to be transported. Minivans are great vehicles for travelling any distance, with the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0 as an example vehicle. Even larger Vans are available from Alamo, such as the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8.
