Midsize car rental options may be both 2 or 4 door cars.
While 4 door cars are the most common, it is unlikely that a car rental company will guarantee 4 doors in a midsize car. If the number of doors is a very important feature of your rental experience, you should contact the car rental company to check and see if a 4 door preference can be added to your reservation.
Some common makes and models that you will see offered for a midsize rental include
Midsize cars have a seating capacity for 5 passengers
2 seatbelts in front and 3 in the back
Average Luggage Capacity
The average luggage capacity listed for a midsize is
1 Large 2 Medium 3 Small - pieces of luggage
I find that the luggage restrictions usually listed by rental companies tends to be fairly conservative. Capacity will vary depending on the type of luggage or items you're using.
Some common standard features found in a midsize car rental will include
Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Locks
Average Fuel Economy
The average gas mileage for a midsize car is
23 mpg – city
33 mpg - highway
This makes this type of car a very popular option for both short and long rentals.
The midsize car category is probably the most popular car class for rental companies.... and usually is the biggest selection in their fleets.
Note: In general categories, car rental companies can rarely guarantee a make or model. That’s why you’ll usually see a make/model example with a notation of …or similar. That means you will get either that vehicle or something of similar size and with similar features.
