Parking and narrow city streets should be kept in mind when choosing a suitable ride. While premium cars and SUVs are very comfortable and offer lots of legroom, they can prove challenging to maneuver and park. Given that Midtown Sacramento is just 1 mile from Sacramento, there's a good possibility you'll be cruising the downtown streets. Our advice? Go for a car that's got enough room for your entire group and your belongings but still compact enough to handle city driving. Our standard-size vehicles are great all-rounders and should fit the bill.

Alternatively, if you just need something to whiz around town in as economically as possible, stick with a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
