HomeInfo and supportCar leasingHow to choose your brand new Peugeot or DS Automobiles car

Choosing your vehicle is even more important with the Car-2-Europe car leasing plan because once you arrive at your destination you cannot change the model. For this reason, you must ask yourself the following questions prior to renting a brand-new vehicle for your trip to Europe.

How many passengers are there?

Whether you are travelling alone, as a couple, as a family or in a group of 1-8 passengers, we offer you a complete choice of brand new Peugeot or DS Automobiles car to satisfy all your needs!

How much luggage are we bringing?

Our economy, compact, SUV, family and minibus vehicle categories offer enough cargo space for all the luggage you are in the habit of bringing on vacation. With the car leasing plan, you choose the model and won’t have any unpleasant surprises because you already know the vehicle’s cargo capacity.

What comfort level do we need?

You certainly don’t want to be cramped throughout your trip and regret your vehicle choice! A superior vehicle category will only cost a few dollars more each day. During your vacation, spoil yourself, travelling in a more comfortable and spacious.

Diesel or gas engine, manual or automatic transmission? How many kilometres will we be travelling?

Contrary to popular belief, diesel is not always synonymous with savings. Indeed, various criteria determine fuel efficiency: the country visited, engine power, transmission type and the distance to be travelled. For example, in France, you must drive at least 2,500 km to obtain fuel economy on a compact manual car with a diesel engine versus a gas engine. With the Car-2-Europe car leasing plan, you choose before leaving with the vehicle. Gas or diesel fuel, automatic or manual transmission. That way, you can calculate your fuel budget.

What kinds of roads will we be travelling? What season?

Your vehicle must be adapted to the type of trip you are taking. If you are travelling mainly in the cities and on highways, you will not need the same vehicle as if you are riding snowy mountain roads or bumpy dirt roads. On the mountain or by the seaside, the engine power and transmission type will play an important role in your safety and comfort. If you want to get off the beaten path, choose a SUV.
