I reserved a “Full-Size” Passenger Car to pick up Friday. I will have it for 10 days. The agency guarantees a 2016 car, but they can’t hold a particular car. When I arrive I will likely choose between four of them, hopefully (choices could be fewer).
Important to me are room for 3 people, luggage, comfort, quiet, and safety, if possible.
Gas economy is not very important because gas is so cheap. 3,000 miles should require maybe 100 gallons, give or take.
I haven’t driven any of the choices and don’t know much except what I’m finding in printed blurbs.
Here’s the line-up:
2016 Ford Fusion
2016 Chevrolet Malibu
2016 Nissan Altima
2016 Toyota Camry
I don’t know engine or transmission specs or which trim level these cars are, but think “fleet rental car” and use your imagination
I have read that the Ford is quiet, but not roomy and has a small trunk opening, and not great visibility.
The Chevrolet is quiet and probably a “Limited” (an older body style more like a 2015) Fleet car and might be cramped in back seat.
The Nissan is roomy, but doesn’t sound like it’s very comfortable (seating and ride).
The Toyota is roomy and seems like a pretty good choice.
Do you know anything about theses cars? Which would be your FIRST and SECOND choice for 3 people to sit in for a long time and be comfortable and safe?
