Soon, I will be be visiting Germany and Italy and looking for rental cars there. Italy will have some mountain roads and I will driving some long distances over period of more than half month. That is the reason, I am stressing on more comfortable car. Probably, SUV would not be ideal.
I am getting two options from rental agency. Either go smaller model of premium class (BMW 118i, AU A3-SPORTBACK 2.0, MERCEDES-BENZ A-KLASSE, some VW Golf also) or can go with intermediate class (VW Passat, Skoda Octavia, Kia Optima).
By impression, premium class always impresses me. But in this case, should I go with basic cars of premium brand or little upper class in normal brands ?
We are just two people and No problem with luggage too. All I am going with driving comfort and handling. I never drove MB/BMW class. Opinions please ?
