What are the Different Types of Rental Cars?

Cars vary in size, type and class. We will introduce you to the general classification of cars for rent at Drivo to make your decision easier:

Economy Cars

Economy cars are the go-to choice for budget-conscious travelers. These compact vehicles are not only affordable but also fuel-efficient, making them ideal for city driving and short trips. Despite their smaller size, economy cars offer a comfortable ride and are easy to park, especially in crowded urban areas.
The Drivo fleet includes such models as Chevy Spark and Mitsubishi Mirage.

Compact Cars

A step up from economy cars, compact rental cars will offer a bit more space and comfort without sacrificing fuel efficiency. They are perfect for solo travelers or couples who need a bit more room for luggage and prefer a slightly more spacious interior for longer drives.

Here is an example of a compact car: Hyundai Accent, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Versa and many other cars you can find at Drivo.

Midsize Cars

Mid-size cars, also known as intermediate cars, strike a balance between size and efficiency. They provide plenty of space for passengers and luggage, making them suitable for small families or groups. Midsize cars offer a comfortable ride for longer trips and come with more features than smaller car categories.

Drivo has Volkswagen Jetta, Kia Forte, Ford Focus and many others waiting for you.

Fullsize Cars

Full size rental cars are designed for those who need more space and comfort. With little more legroom and a large trunk, these vehicles are perfect for families and groups traveling with plenty of luggage. Full-size cars often come with advanced features and provide a smooth, comfortable ride.

Chevy Malibu, Toyota Camry and Kia Optima from Drivo’s fleet would be great full size car traveling companions.

For those looking to travel in style, luxury cars offer top-notch comfort, advanced technology, and high-end features. These vehicles are perfect for special occasions, business trips, or simply enjoying a premium driving experience. Expect superior performance and a plush interior.
Drivo is proud to have the Lamborghini Urus, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz G-Class and Mercedes-Benz S-Class in its fleet.


Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are known for their versatility and spaciousness. They come in various sizes, from compact to full-sized, and are ideal for families, groups, and those planning outdoor adventures. SUVs offer plenty of cargo space, higher seating positions, and the capability to handle diverse terrains.
We have Dodge Journey, Jeep Patriot, Hyundai Santa Fe, Nissan Rogue and many other Intermediate, Fullsize and Standard SUVs.


Minivans are the ultimate choice for large families or groups needing extra space. With three rows of seating, they can accommodate up to seven or eight passengers comfortably. Minivans are perfect for road trips, providing ample room for both passengers and luggage, along with family-friendly features.
Drivo minivans feature the Dodge Caravan, Nissan Quest, Kia Sedona and other options.
