Best Cars to Rent in Montreal

Traveling in Canada can be the adventure of a lifetime. Of course, knowing why kind of car to rent can help to make or break the fun of traveling. When renting a car in Montreal, it’s best to think about the weather, how much you will be traveling, and more.

Traveling in Style

If you’re planning on traveling in the summertime and want to drive with the roof down, it could be fun to rent a sports car or another Montreal exotic car rental. Renting a luxury car works best in the summertime because the roads will be clear of snow and other obstructions. Plus, it’ll be warm enough to enjoy a convertible, if you so desire.

So, what are some of the best exotic rental cars? Some of the most popular brands are listed below. 

  • Audi
  • Aston Martin
  • Bugatti
  • Bently
  • Ferrari
  • Lamborghini
  • McLaren
  • Mercedes
  • Porsche

Other things to consider, outside of car brand, is how new the car is. The newer the car, the flashier and more impressive it is likely to be.

Traveling Long Distances

When traveling long distances, it’s best to forgo a luxury car and instead rent a car that has better gas mileage. Even when renting a car, renters do need to keep in mind that they need to pay for their own gas. 

According to the US News website, there are a variety of cars that have great fuel economy, including those vehicles that take diesel. Below is a short list of some of the best fuel-efficient cars (as of 2019). 

  • Jaguar XE Diesel
  • Toyota Corolla Hatchback
  • Honda Civic
  • Chevrolet Cruse Diesel
  • Kia Optima Hybrid

Traveling in the Winter

Canada is famous for its snowy and icy winters. If you plan on traveling to Montreal anytime between November and March, it’s best to rent a car that can handle icy roads.

The best cars for winter driving are those that have four-wheel drive. If drivers cannot find a suitable car with four-wheel drive, then they can instead opt for a car with winter tires equipped. Below is a list of some of the best rental cars for winter driving. 

  • Dodge Charger AWD
  • Subaru Outback
  • Volvo V90 Cross Country
  • BMW 3-Series xDrive
