What is an economy class car in car rental?

In car rental, economy class cars tend to be small – they are the second smallest type of car you can rent. They are good for city driving and suitable for four people for shorter trips, and two or three people for longer trips.

Rental companies in Kenya often don’t know precisely which cars they’ll have in their fleet on a given day. This is because their cars will often need cleaning, servicing, repairing or replacing. This is why every rental car has ‘or similar’ next to the make and model you’re looking for. If you choose to rent an economy class car, the ‘or similar’ options will be other economy cars.

Helping you compare: economy class cars.

Here are some examples of economy class cars. They have slightly different specifications and look different on the surface, but they all have similarly sized engines, dimensions and luggage and passenger space. So you can get any one of these – as well as other economy class cars not shown- when you book any car in the economy group.

When it comes to zipping around or taking advantage of those sometimes difficult on-street parking spaces – or navigating tight turns in multi-storey car parks – the benefits of economy class takes some beating.

Compact enough to handle conveniently, yet with enough comfort for longer trips to drive out of the city and explore the surrounding areas with ease, these agile cars are between minis and large compact cars in terms of size. The fuel efficiency of economy cars is, of course, a great advantage at the petrol pump, so they are an excellent choice for getting around while maintaining control over costs. Additionally, as these vehicles can accommodate up to four passengers and three light to medium-size bags, they work well for couples or small families with light luggage for short trips away.
