Toyota’s Yaris is a better vehicle than ever in its class and as such it holds wide appeal to those looking for a basic, no-frills ride. The steering is light and easy for parking, and its turning circle is compact. The car feels both secure and comfortable and can even feel pleasantly sporty on twisting byways.

Toyota RAV4

Toyota Rav4 tilbod E

Visitors to Iceland are not always here on business. When you are set on seeing the sights with a spouse or friend, you will need something more spacious than a sedan built for city driving. That is where the RAV4 comes in. The RAV4 was one of the first entries in the crossover market, and combines the best qualities of an SUV and a compact sedan. That means it has more cargo room plus 4-wheel drive while possessing the mileage and maneuverability of the smaller car. Today's third-generation RAV4 offers comfort and quality often lacking in newer-generation competitors.

Suzuki Grand Vitara

Suzuki Grand Vitara bílaleigu bíll

The Grand Vitara, the car with many names (aka Escuda, Sidekick, Sunrunner, Tracker, Levante, and the Suzuki Grand Escudo – itself called the Grand Vitara XL-7 in some markets) is a solid off-road vehicle that began production in 1988. Here at Iceland’s Route 1 Car Rental we stick with the Vitara because under that name it received the prestigious Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy award for responsive on-road handling and powerful heavy-duty off-road exploring. If you are bound for Iceland’s wild, the Vitara’s reliable V6 engine and four-wheel-drive will be fearless on whatever terrain Iceland has to offer. Adventure with confidence!
