Toyota Corolla
Toyota Corolla
  • Type: compact
  • Passengers: five
  • Rental companies: Hertz and Enterprise
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 26
    • Highway - 34

As simple, straightforward transportation, the Corolla offers controls and systems that won't confound drivers unfamiliar with their operation -- an important point for renters. Thanks to a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and six-way adjustable driver's seat, finding a comfortable driving position isn't difficult for most. A well-rounded sedan, it delivers decent fuel economy combined with a Consumer Reports rating of "very good" for ride quality, noise and front-seat comfort. A 132-horsepower, 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic transmission deliver adequate performance for typical vacation duties.

Toyota loaded the Corolla with all sorts of storage cubbies, as well as 20-ounce bottle holders in all four doors. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat provides extra cargo room. An auxiliary audio input jack allows the use of iPods and other personal music devices.
