My family is going to Europe in a few months but my dad keeps telling us how we have to "pack light because the rental car isn't going to be that big." According the the rental car company, it's going to be a Renault Fluence or Skoda Octavia or something similar. I've looked at pictures of them but I'm still kinda unsure what the size of them is like. What do we have here in the US that's comparable in size to these cars?
Rental cars usually are chosen specifically with trunk size in mind. The last time I had a rental I was surprised about the trunk size in such a small car. It's not comparable to landbarges, but sufficient unless you take half your household on vacation. Airline restrictions and extra luggage fees should be more of a concern to you than your rental car trunk anyway.
It probably is harder for the first hours to keep in mind that you have to drive on the "wrong" side of the road.
So you're going to britbongland.
So many more excellent places to visit and you're going to one infested with niggers and curry smelling people.
Wrong. Superb is not (or atleast was not)based on a passat platform. It has way more interior room than the passat. And I mean way more. Its almost like a phaeton inside. The octavia is also a little bigger than golfs butnot by much.
Octavia is basically an Audi A4 with a bigger trunk. Also the whole back window opens with the trunk lid. You should get the 2L turbo diesel or the 2L tfsi. The other engines have no balls.
Yeah i looked it up. The first one was on an A4 chassis though.
My dad has a 2012 2.0TDI and I get to drive it quite a bit. That said, compared to my 2001 A6 it really feels nervous on the road. And little hard too. My dad likes my pos Audi more, way more comfortable

Weirdly not hard at all. Only time I've done it was in an old dune buggy with a horrendously jerky, imprecise 4 speed, and the vaguest clutch in the world. I managed fine despite being usually being uncoordinated as fuck.
It was utter, shit, they hardly sold any, and now Renault is probably trying to forget the whole sorry fiasco. But yeah, we did.
