Subject: re: What size rental car
I'd concur with another post that a French mini van would be a good choice...(someone suggested a Renault)for four people travelling together. Last summer my spouse and I rented a Ford Focus through Hertz but were upgraded to a Citroen Picasso. That's a smaller by far version of a North American mini van. It's comfortable and responsive, and never too big to park in tight spots. The only minor caveat I can comment on is that the gearing is rather *long*, which necessitated more paddling through the gears while driving through the high passes in the Alps. If you enjoy driving in a fast or spirited fashion I'd consider a VW Passat or an Audi...and I believe that Michael Schumacher has been instrumental in designing the new Ferrari;)
