Dubai's top car rental agencies offer different types of cars to choose from hatchbacks to sedans and crossovers to SUVs.
Then how will you decide which car to rent? If you consider SUVs and sedans, how will you zero in on one? Here are certain things you should consider while choosing between an SUV and a sedan.
Before deciding which type of car to rent, you should first understand your requirement. Based on that, you can decide whether to go for an SUV or a sedan.
If you are a small family with up to four members, a sedan would be enough for a comfortable drive. But, on the other hand, if your family is large and travels with a lot of luggage, an SUV is the right choice. Because of ample space in an SUV, passengers can sit comfortably throughout the journey. In SUV, you have many options; you can rent Nissan kicks a 5-seater if you are looking for a basic small SUV to travel in Dubai. On the other hand, you can opt for a more premium 7-seater SUV like Toyota Prado Landcruiser if you need more seating capacity.
Off-road travel or desert drive is popular in the UAE. If you are planning for off-road travel, SUVs are the right choice. This is because most SUVs are four-wheel-drive that can withstand the rough terrain of off-road travel. Moreover, if the weather conditions are not favorable, an SUV would be the right choice to withstand adverse conditions like a flood.
But if you travel between the Emirates without touching the off-road, a sedan would be enough. You can opt to rent a Toyota Yaris one of the most economical options available. If you are looking for a more premium sedan, you should hire Kia Cerato with a reverse camera and parking sensors.
The sedan is the best choice when it comes to fuel efficiency. If you plan to travel on a paved road throughout your journey, it is best to opt for a sedan. You can save a lot of money if you opt for this type of car. This is because the sedan is smaller in size when compared to an SUV. Thus, the fuel usage will also be less. Though fuel-efficient models of SUV are available in the market, it is not comparable to a sedan.
