Large Compact Cars to Hire in the UK

Large compact car hire

Opting for a mid-size or slightly larger compact rental car gives drivers and passengers the opportunity to travel in extra comfort. This type of vehicle has more room for luggage for shopping, transporting a suitcase (or two) with bags when travelling to and from airports, or for organising longer day trips to explore an area and see the sights. Whether the self-drive hire customer is seeking fuel-efficiency, space or comfort and style, Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers a super selection of large compact car hire options. Capable of seating up to five occupants, larger compact vehicles suit families and small groups well because they have more legroom in the back than economy vehicles. The extra passenger space makes this category of car particularly suitable for teenagers or taller travellers. Typical specifications include five doors, power steering, anti-lock braking systems for extra safety, and AM/FM stereo radios with CD/USB. Additionally, a choice of manual or automatic transmission is available, depending on the vehicle. As the discerning customer would expect, Enterprise works continuously to offer drivers the best rental car models in each category and is delighted to provide an extensive choice of comfortable, modern large compact vehicles – fully serviced and maintained for maximum reliability.
