The most affordable car could be similar to the Renault Twingo with a manual transmission, and this car is found in the Mini 2-door category. Economy cars also come with very low rental rates, and could be similar to the Ford Fiesta Trend or the Renault Clio. These smaller cars have room for four passengers and a couple of luggage items. They are great for city driving or for journeys of longer distances.

The device will provide continuous road maps, accurate directions and a range of other useful features.
